Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, popularly known as Mr Eazi, a Nigerian singer, has said that he never wanted to be a musician.
The mechanical engineer explained that he went into music by accident.
He revealed that he ruminated over quitting his music career after performing at the Coachella in 2019, just three years into his music career and he didn’t feel fulfilled.
The ‘Skin Tight’ crooner said he decided to diversify into tech to ease the burnout he was experiencing musically.
He made this known in a recent interview with media personality, Angela Lee.
According to him, “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.
He added: “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.”
