MR EAZI ADMITS HE NEVER WORKED AT SCHLUMBERGER, HE WAS ONLY AN INTERN
Mr Eazi, popular Nigerian musician has been in the news for a while now for allegedly claiming Ghana has aided the Nigerian music industry and that he brought Ghana tunes to Nigeria also for claiming he left his job as an engineer in Schlumberger for music. Amazingly Eazi has just admitted only interning at Schlumberger but he insists that he brought Ghanaian sounds to Nigeria.
Despite being lambasted for claiming that the practice of infusing Ghanaian sounds and slangs into Nigerian music was started by him, Mr Eazi is still standing by his words.
The singer said: “The interview that caused this uproar was just me speaking my mind and saying things the way I see it from my perspective. It wasn’t meant to be an insult to any Nigerian artiste. .
You cannot deny that I brought a new vibe to the industry and I believe everybody can see that. Now, there are lots of Nigerian artistes who use Ghanaian words and melodies in their songs, but they’ve never been to Ghana. .
So how did they get to know about those words? There are a lot more songs out now that have that Ghanaian influence, and with all due respect, I can boldly say that started after my songs started gaining popularity.” .
Speaking on the $6,000 job he claimed to have turned down for music, Mr Eazi said: “I turned down the job; I didn’t say I had started working there. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being an intern. .
I don’t have anything to gain by lying about such a thing. The truth remains that I was offered a job by Schlumberger, but I decided not to take it, but rather concentrated on my career. And that is a decision I’ve never regretted till date.”
