“I don’t mean to brag but in the past one year in West Africa, I’ve been the second bestselling artiste on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal … the second best next to Wizkid.”

Who said that? Davido? Wrong! His name is Mr Eazi.

He said this in a radio interview in Ghana, where he spoke about his relationship with Starboy Worldwide.

Asides making us see how humble he has been despite being the biggest selling artiste after Wizkid, he noted that his deal with the label alongside Wizkid, Efya and R2Bees is not what it looks like.

“I’m unsigned. I never even signed myself … We’ve all been in business,” Mr Eazi said.

“It’s just the mentality of people. When you hear Drake signed The Weeknd, it doesn’t mean Drake brought some 360 deal, there are different ways of signing an artiste.

‘What it is is that we’re in business together, everybody is in business together and I feel like I’m getting the most because now, when I walk into a meeting and I say ‘Starboy Worldwide, they are like ‘oh, Wizkid, Efya’,” he said.
