Following the release of Life is Eazi Vol. 2 Lagos To London, Mr. Eazi has launched emPawa.
The new initiative is aimed at emerging African talent and aims to find the continent’s next batch of superstars. Candidates will submit their work via Instagram, this will then be evaluated by Mr. Eazi and a team of industry experts.
Mr. Eazi will pick 100 artists who will each receive a $3,000 grant to produce a music video. From the 100 videos, 10 will work with Mr. Eazi in a 3-week incubator programme alongside Raye and Diplo. After the programme, a lucky few will be chosen to perform with Mr. Eazi at Ghana Party in the Park in London next year.
Mr. Eazi believes that with the right collaboration, investment, and experience a handful of artists will have the opportunity to break into the music industry. In the near future, he aims to open this programme to candidates across the UK and the US.
