Mr. Eazi, a well-known Nigerian singer, songwriter, and businessman, recently talked about his music career in a surprising way. He also revealed that music wasn’t his first choice in life.
In a recent interview with Angela Lee, the ‘Advice‘ singer shared that music wasn’t something he was passionate about, especially not becoming a musician.
Mr. Eazi initially wanted to focus on business more than music. At one point in his music career, he felt unsatisfied and even thought about giving up.
He recalled a moment in 2019 when he performed at Coachella, a famous music festival. After the performance, he felt nothing – no happiness or sadness. This made him consider quitting music and concentrating on other things, like his tech company, Zagadat Capital.
When COVID-19 hit, he took a pause to decide his next steps. He had started Empawa, a project in the music business, but he was tired of listening to music. So, he let his team handle it while he pursued his dream of becoming an entrepreneur, inspired by Jay-Z’s journey.
In his word, Mr. eazi said; “I have a tech company called Zagadat Capital. And this was like me being bored of music.After performing at the Coachella in 2019. I played on the first day of Coachella, I came down from the stage and I felt nothing. No happiness. No sadness.
“For somebody who never wanted to be an artist, and third year of my career, I’m playing Coachella and I felt nothing. So, for me, it was a sign I would either have to quit music and go do something else. Because that was not a good feeling to have or I needed to pause. Maybe I was experiencing burnout.
“And when COVID hit, it was the first time I paused and tried to decide what would be the next move. I had started Empawa so I was getting to understand the music business. But I was tired of even listening to music. How can you run a music business without listening to music? So, I just had my team handle that.
“I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur and now the music has given me access to people and capital, so I was like, okay, I’m gonna start my fund like Jay-Z.”
