From Accra to Lagos to London, Mr. Eazi presents The ‘Life is Eazi’ Culture Festival 2017 is here. In homage to the city that first embraced him, Nigerian-born artist Mr. Eazi debuts the ‘Life is Eazi’ annual event series at London’s premiere hub for music’s creative community, the Roundhouse.
This immersive, festival-inspired one day exposé is designed to draw back the curtain on the lifestyle and culture which brought forth afrobeats – the rapidly evolving hybrid sound created and popularised by young music fans whose heritage traverse Africa and the UK.
In a bid to capture the vibrancy of its cornerstone elements, ‘Life is Eazi’ will showcase the art, dance, fashion and music curated by Mr. Eazi, culminating in a full-blown concert by the pioneering artist himself.
Having made the country ‘Detty Themsef’ during his world tour, Uncle London is ready to show the capital how his sound has broken down the musical barriers for afrobeats.
Mr. Eazi is known as Uncle London for a reason – the UK has been instrumental in his journey and the rise of African music. Eazi has been championed by fans, musical pioneers and artists between London, Ghana, Lagos.
The latter two are the muse cities to Mr. Eazi’s critically acclaimed mixtape Accra 2 Lagos which, along with an arsenal of ‘Banku Music’ classic and current favourites from Skin Tight to Leg Over, are bound to make the set list for the two-hour live set planned to crown off the night.
Expect also to discover the best across African music, dance, art and fashion in a first for what promises to be a staple on London’s cultural calendar.
