nigerian singer ( Mr Easi ) ? is the Kanye West and Jay-Z of the African music industry
Nigerian singer Mr Eazi is the Kanye West and Jay-Z of the African music industry.
While his influential colleagues like Don Jazzy, Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy still feel the need to rush to American labels for assistance in marketing their music, Eazi saw the broader vision and chose to invest in the African dream.
We’re not implying that WizKid, Davido, and others aren’t contributing significantly to the African music industry, but the simple truth is that they are limiting themselves and have failed to grasp the bigger picture.
Since Mr Eazi launched Zagadat Capital in 2021, the company has invested in tech companies such as the remittance-based lending company Paisa, Eden Life, African fintech Pawapay, and most recently, the South African basketball team Cape Town Tigers. His portfolio company was reportedly sold for over 1 Billion to an American company this year.
We are gradually moving into the digital era. I don’t see any reason why big cats and multi-millionaires like Davido, WizKid, and others have not invested in any technology that would assist the African music industry.
“These individuals possess platforms that influence millions of Africans and label themselves with names like the Biggest Bird, 001, etc., yet they have failed to give back to African society“
The biggest African streaming platform is Boomplay, owned by an Asian, while we have people here who could decide to build a streaming platform for us and invest in it.
We are in 2023 and we need our own streaming platform. They should do the needful !!!
We need to start telling these people the truth. If they genuinely love African music fans, they should offer something tangible back to us.
