Banku music proponent, Mr. Eazi, has been unveiled as the headlining act of the latest Trace Live concert.
The announcement comes days after the release of his latest project, the ‘Lagos to London’ mixtape featuring Diplo, 2baba, Simi and Giggs.
Trace Live is a music concert which spotlights artistes and their band as they perform to devoted fans in an intimate setting.
The Mr Eazi edition is the fifth in the Trace Live series which has featured the likes of Omawumi, Flavour, Adekunle Gold and Falz.
“Mr Eazi is clearly one of the best music ambassadors as recognised by Apple Music in New York Times Square,” says Sam Onyemelukwe, Managing Director, TRACE Anglophone.
“Trace live with Mr Eazi continues from a rich tradition and would redefine it with stage theatrics and good old hip sound.
“Having crossed borders previously with his mixtape Accra to Lagos, Mr Eazi transitions across continents with his new EP moving from Lagos to London.
“With a fusion of Afrobeats sounds and Banku Music, Mr Eazi generates an electrifying energy with his musical genre with a pattern that has magnetic appeal within and outside Nigeria, hence the wordplay of his new album ‘Lagos to London’. An odyssey that we all must partake in.”
The upcoming event, tagged, ‘The Eazi Journey’, is being put together by Cabal and Bolanle Austen Peters.
