Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, better known as Mr. Eazi, is a well-known musician and entrepreneur. However, he has said that singing was never his childhood goal.
The mechanical engineer said that he accidentally entered the music scene.
After playing at Coachella in 2019, only three years into his music career, Mr. Eazi claimed that he had considered giving up music because he didn’t feel fulfilled.
The singer of “Skin Tight” claimed that the burnout he was feeling in his musical career led him to diversify into IT.
In a recent interview with media personality Angela Lee, he made this revelation.
He said, “I have a tech company called Zagadat Capital. And this was like me being bored of music.
“After performing at the Coachella in 2019. I played on the first day of Coachella, I came down from the stage and I felt nothing. No happiness. No sadness.
“For somebody who never wanted to be an artist, and third year of my career, I’m playing Coachella and I felt nothing.
“So, for me, it was a sign I would either have to quit music and go do something else. Because that was not a good feeling to have or I needed to pause. Maybe I was experiencing burnout.
“And when COVID hit, it was the first time I paused and tried to decide what would be the next move. I had started Empawa so I was getting to understand the music business.
“But I was tired of even listening to music. How can you run a music business without listening to music? So, I just had my team handle that.
“I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur and now the music has given me access to people and capital, so I was like, okay, I’m gonna start my fund like Jay-Z.”
Mr Eazi also disclosed that he will be investing in the movie industry from next year.
