You remember when Mr. Eazi was excluded from Ghana Music Awards in 2016 because he is not a Ghanaian? Well Charter House made a mistake because Mr Eazi is a Ghanaian and he comes from Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
Real Name Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, Mr. Eazi is signed to Wizkid‘s StarBoy Worldwide label and has collaborated with famous names in the Ghanaian music industry, such as Sarkodie, Efya, and Pappy Kojo.
But one unique part of his brand is the Straw hat that he wears or hangs on his back. – A reason i said forcibly adopted the Nigerian born singer as a Ghanaian from Bolgatanga. Straw hats is an identity of the people of Bolgatanga. Due to the intense sun in the area, the people have through their ingenuity crafted a hat made from straw (grass) which is worn to protect their heads from the hot sun.
Mr Eazi has identified with the people of Bolgatanga with the straw hat being a significant part of his brand identity globally. He has helped export the craft of the people of bolgatanga like native artistes such as Atongo Zimba and King Ayisoba.
