Mr Eazi makes a return to the news headlines for something other than a loose talk.
The ‘Leg Over’ crooner has revealed that before fame he was doing a 9 – 5 job which he quit to pursue music.
During an extensive interview on Beat FM Lagos, the controversy spinning musician admitted he abandoned his $6000 per month job at an Oil and Gas to face music.
Mr Eazi shared the inspiring story in his own words as follows:
“After I came back from Ghana, I got a job in oil and gas in Port Harcourt that paid about six thousand dollars per month but I quit because I was not finding fulfillment in it.
I mean it was the same thing every day, the same routine over and over again. The decision to quit the job finally hit me when my boss’ wife left him even with all the money he had.
After I left my job, I got my Masters degree and with all that qualification I started selling phones in computer village and everyone thought something was wrong with me.
Even my mother started praying special prayers for me but my father didn’t add that final voice that would have decided my fate. My break finally came after I got an invite to do two shows in London that made me twelve thousand pounds which I used to shoot two videos.
When I told my mother what I did with the money she stopped talking to me for about three weeks. I had to move in with a friend because even my relatives didn’t want me around but everything finally changed when I went back to London for shows that fetched me really good money.”
