Last night was eventful. Every big name waving the Afrobeat flag blessed the Life Is Eazi Culture Festival stage with glorious performances at Camden’s Round House.
Fans filled the Round House with excitement, in hopes of seeing Mr Eazi deliver his chart-topping hits. Having captured the ears of Beats1, Radio 1Xtra and Capital Xtra with his Afrobeat sounds, Mr Eazi’s swagger, and confidence enables him to maintain his place as the voice of Afrobeat in 2017.
Of course, the Nigerian singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur, Mr Eazi didn’t conquer the day on his own. His highly-talented colleagues contributed with amazing performances. Take a look below and re-leave what went down at the Life Is Eazi Culture Festival.
DJ Naija Boi and Juls kept the crowd entertained
As the crowd was settling into the Round House, DJ Naija Boi and Juls kept them warm with their Afrobeat anthem playlist which was enough to have the crowd excited. Dousing the crowd with an array of bangers ranging from WizKid to UK’s very own J Hus.
DJ P Montana and DJ Maphorisa maintain the energy with more rhythms from Africa
Known for hosting his self-titled show on Radar Radio and putting out mad successful mixes online, DJ/Producer DJ P Montana took the baton from DJ Naija Boi and Juls and kept the energy high with London’s homegrown talent Kojo Funds before taking it oversea feeding the crowd Cardie B’s club anthem Bodak Yellow.
Fashion, Fashion, Fashion
The Life Is Eazi Culture Festival had enough for everyone. From life dance battles to fashion shows. It was filled with treats. Designers such as Drifters LDN, Mojo Jojo, Gravalot, Chelsea Bravo and Mazura Studios took to the stage to showcase their spectacular collections. As the crowd cheered, models walked down the isles at the Round House with African inspired designs.
Kwamz & Flava bought their own flavours to the Round House
Ghanaian duo Kwamz & Flava took the house down with their smash hits such as ‘Takeover’ and ‘Wo Onane No’ this was enough to make the crowd lose their mind.
Just under 20mins before the man of the hour – Mr Eazi graced the stage, The Compozers treated the crowd to a beautiful live instrumental rendition of fans favourite Davido tracks such as ‘If’ and ‘Fall’ before counting us down in the moment we had all been waiting for. With multi-coloured lights flashing throughout their set, the talent instrumental quartet marched us through to the main event.
Mr Eazi proves he deserves the crowd as the new voice of Afrobeat
After a magnificent live instrumental set from The Compozers, fans began to scream as they began a countdown to the man himself. After hours of waiting, their wish was granted at approximately 10 p.m. when Mr Eazi tore down the Round House with a mesmerising entrance leading to a buoyant performance of “Sample You”. The Nigerian artist’s slick bravado placed the crowd in the palm of his hand.
Straight after he served “Sample You”, Mr Eazi jumped into “In The Morning” track 9 off his ‘Life Is Eazi, Vol. 1 – Accra To Lagos’ Album. He gracefully cruised through the track with enjoyment. The talented artist then took us back to his 2016 hit “Anointing” before travelling back in time, veering to his 2013 release “Bankulize” before heading back to modern time and dived into the crowd-pleasing anthems such as “Hold Up”, “Short Skirt” and “Leg Over”.
Mr Eazi kept his promise of bringing the best acts from Africa as he then passed the mic over to multi-platinum selling independent recording artist Fuseodg as he performed his 2013 hit song “Million Pound Girl (Badder Than Bad)” making the crowd lose their mind. Keeping up the promised Eugy also took the stage to perform his 2016 anthem “Dance For Me”
If this wasn’t enough, Mr Eazi bought out non-other than YUNGEN to perform his summer anthem “Bestie” featuring Yxng Bane.
As the night ended, Mr Eazi serenaded the crowd with the crowd’s favourite “Skin Tight” making the crowd mainly the ladies go crazy as he walked the stage gracing each one of his fans with his presence. Africa was in the heart of Camden this weekend and we only have Mr Eazi to thank for this.
