After causing an uproar on Twitter by saying Nigerian music is influenced by Ghanaian sounds, Mr. Eazi has expounded on his statement in an interview with MTV Base.
“Ghana’s influence on present day “Naija Sound” cannot be overemphasized,” the singer had tweeted.
While a storm of reactions was breaking out, Mr. Eazi had subsequently tweeted, “Just got a call, my fam in Imeko are doing family meeting to deport me to Ghana! Abeg my Naija people no vez“.
He says the follow-up tweet was not an apology for his assertion, adding that people “mistook” his tweet.
