Mr Eazi, Afrobeats singer, has put out a short film for ‘The Don’, the first track of ‘Something Else‘, his recent EP.
The short film, which premiered on Monday, sees him play a criminal kingpin incarcerated on an island penitentiary.
The nearly seven minutes footage kicks off with a prison transportation scene after which some masked men ambushed the vehicle in which Mr Eazi was being taken to a maximum detention centre and whisked him away.
It also features Eazi’s Empawa label as a news medium reporting the development.
In his solitude, Eazi then begins a monologue where he says: “You must think I’m stupid, it’s so funny how you talk. That me not being on the scene; me staying on the inside meant I didn’t know what was going on.
“They didn’t know I only went to restrategise, to come back even more powerful. Y’all just out here hustling. It’s time for you to pay rent. I own the system. I’m the don.”

Mr Eazi, whose real name is Oluwatosin Ajibade, pioneered Banku Music, a fusion sound he describes as a mixture of Ghana highlife and Nigerian chord progressions and patterns. His debut mixtape ‘About to Blow’ was released in 2013.
The singer gained international recognition following the release of the Efya-assisted single ‘Skin Tight’. His second mixtape ‘Life Is Eazi, Vol. ‘1 – Accra To Lagos’ was released in February 2017 and the second volume came in 2018.
