From Friday 21st August 2020, Zeebrugge Beach will be opened to Mr Eazi as he cements his musical prowess in Europe at this year’s Bomboclat Festival in Belgium.
Born Oluwatosin Ajibade, Mr Eazi is to headline the festival with his ‘Banku Music’ which is described as a fusion sound of Ghanaian highlife and Nigerian chord progressions and patterns.
Seen as one of the leading musicians of his generation, some of Mr Eazi’s hits include anthems such as Pour Me Water, Leg Over, Surrender, Skin-Tight, Pilolo, Akwaaba, London Town, Call Me, Bankulize and Decline. He has already performed in his country Nigeria and his ‘adopted’ country Ghana and other parts of the world including the US.
Speaking of Mr Eazi, Loosveldt Wannes of Bomboclat Festival said:
“Mr. Eazi is one of the first to breakthrough with Afrobeats in Europe, and more specifically, in Belgium.”
“Mr Eazi was one of the first to convince not only expat-Africans but also native Europeans that Afro-beats is the next best thing. It's an honour to welcome him on our stages.”
Mr Eazi’s achievements arguably shows how far the Afro-Beat genre has come as it opens doors and crosses borders all over the world.
The Ghanaian Dancehall musician Stonebwoy performed at the Bomboclat Festival back in 2017 but not as a headliner.
Look out for more info and photos from the festival.
