The infamous Mr. Eazi who also goes by the name Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade is back.
In a collaboration with two of hip hop’s biggest names, Mr. Eazi has released a remix to the hit track “Leg Over.” The track that saw over 19 million views on Youtube, featured on countdowns from Lagos to London. The track that features mega star Wizkid is probably the one track that introduced the world to Nigerian talent that is Mr. Eazi.
The 26-year-old has now reworked his hit track Leg Over, with a feature from French Montana and Ty Dolla Sign on a Major Lazer remix. The track is a mash-up of all their musical styles but unfortunately, it seems that French Montana just could not catch onto the Afrobeat wave. Morocco born, rapper Montana has difficulty riding the beat and instead sounds as though he might be rapping to a totally different track. Nonetheless, Major Lazer delivered on the new beats, giving them a style that would be a mix between pop and electronic dance vibe.
This remix may have been Mr. Eazi’s attempt at winning over new markets like his fellow Nigerian WizKid. However, it seems his choice of collaborators was poor. What do you think?
