$6000 per month Job claim: Mr Eazi shades more light on his controversial statement ”

Singer Mr Eazi has clarified his recent claim on giving up a $6000 per month job to focus on his music career.

Mr Eazi had earlier faced criticism from Nigerians on social media after he said the new wave Nigerian sound draws inspiration from Ghana, a sound, he said he’s a pioneer of.

Mr Eazi, in an interview with Capital Xtra said Nigerian artistes now copying his “formula”. It was after the interview he made the statement on turning down the job.

Some social media users however said he was only an intern at the said company and was never a staff, thus could not earn that much. Mr Eazi however clarified that he never said he was a staff, adding that he was offered a full time job, but turned it down.

“I turned down the job; I didn’t say I had started working there. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being an intern. I don’t have anything to gain by lying about such a thing. The truth remains that I was offered a job by Schlumberger, but I decided not to take it, but rather concentrated on my career. And that is a decision I’ve never regretted till date,” Mr Eazi told Sunday Scoop.

He also stood by his words that he “brought a new vibe to the (music) industry”.

“The interview that caused this uproar was just me speaking my mind and saying things the way I see it from my perspective. It wasn’t meant to be an insult to any Nigerian artiste. You cannot deny that I brought a new vibe to the industry and I believe everybody can see that. Now, there are lots of Nigerian artistes who use Ghanaian words and melodies in their songs, but they’ve never been to Ghana. So how did they get to know about those words? There are a lot more songs out now that have that Ghanaian influence, and with all due respect, I can boldly say that started after my songs started gaining popularity,” Mr Eazi said.

“I don’t have to mention anybody’s name. I am sure that those who are discerning know what I’m talking about,” Mr Eazi said, when asked to mention the artistes that are copying his “formula”.

During the unveiling ceremony, Mary J. recalled her childhood in the projects in New York and the big dreams that helped her become whom she is today. In her words;

“I loved to sing, It set me free from all of the negativity and all of the confusion happening outside of our home. God gave me the strength to keep steppin’ and keep my head up regardless of what anybody thought about me, regardless of what anybody said about me.

I see myself clear and it’s not all pretty, but I accept the beautiful mess that I am because it’s an imperfect me, still learning, still growing, still Mary though” she said.

Sean Combs whom is also known as Diddy and Blige’s longtime friend joined the unveiling. He said;

“this is about our sister getting her star, her true recognition. But this thing is also about family. We’ve been through a whole lot. We started from nothing.

I used to pick Mary up from the projects. I had me a Volkswagen Rabbit. I had two rims on it because I couldn’t afford four we would just drive down the highway in New York, and we would just dream. We would say, ‘We wanna be somebody. We wanna be big, we wanna be something for our people. And we wanna come and shake up the world.’ And we did that.”

Mary J Blige has eight multi-platinum music albums to her name and has sold over 50 million copies worldwide.
