Today Banku music creator Mr Eazi premiered ‘Overload’ from his upcoming EP ‘Life is Eazi, Vol. 2 – Lagos to London’ a follow up from his debut album ‘Life is Eazi, Vol.1 – Accra to Lagos’.
‘Overload’ features the Lagos based hip-hop and RnB Artist behind the street anthem ‘Legbegbe’, Mr Real and Slimcase, the official Shaku shaku master. Eazi, Mr Real and Slimcase have collectively worked together to layer their bars, creating a tag team between each other – the result; a song you can’t help but put on repeat.
Following the international success of ‘Pour Me Water’ Mr Eazi reunites with beat master E-kelly (Nigerian based producer known for his work with Wizkid, Naeto C, M.I and Waje) on this track. ‘Overload’ features a rhythmic beat that adopts the dark Southern African drum pattern mixed with the warm bounce of original Nigerian melodies. From the features to the producer, ‘Overload’ embodies the sound of Nigeria to the world.
This single, his first release since signing a label licensing deal recently with Universal Music Group Africa, is influenced by the close trans-Atlantic relationship between Lagos and London with ‘Overload’ capturing the essence of Nigerians in London and the journey to get there.
Mr Eazi is the pioneer of Banku Music, which he describes as a fusion of Ghanaian bounce, Ghanaian Highlife, Nigerian Chord progressions and Nigerian patterns- a sound influenced by the hustle and bustle of Lagos, Nigeria and creatively captured by Mr Eazi, Mr Real and Slimcase on an E-Kelly on this power track.
