Banku music progenitor, Mr Eazi has made it to Billboard’s World Album chart. By virtue of this achievement, his songs were featured on Apple’s playlists and iTunes, making him well positioned to a global audience.
The month-long spotlight on the singer highlighted a documentary about his rapid rise, an interview with Beats 1’s Julie Adenuga, and a live performance session entitled ‘Up Next Session: Mr Eazi’.
The Nigerian singer also appeared on the Late Late Show with British comic James Corden.
Following its release in February, his mixtape had made it onto the chart a month later, peaking at number four.
Eazi was the fourth ‘Up Next’ artiste on Apple Music, a special feature series which was launched in April 2017.
The versatile singer who calls himself a ‘travelling nomad’ will be hosting a culture festival at London’s Roundhouse in September.
