byApril 13, 2021
African pop superstar Mr Eazi has recently released the music video for “The Don” – the lead single off his 2021 Something Else EP.Mr Eazis much-anticipated video was shot in Ghana. Eazi takes on the character of The Don – a revered former convict who escapes from capture and goes on to continue living freely among his people, with ideals like ‘loyalty’ and ‘family’ – which he states in the film’s monologue as paramount in his life.
Just a few months ago, Mr Eazi had dropped his then much-anticipated EP back in February.
“I almost had no time to record. This project was inspired by Kel P and Killertunes, who kept coming to meet me until I finally recorded ‘The Don’. That opened the door for me getting back in the studio.”
The EP featured five songs and among them being a collabo with Kenyas Xenia Manasseh.
Xenia features in the third track dubbed ‘Cherry’, and her sultry voice can be heard radiating those feel-good vibes we love from her.
She posted on social media; 🍒 “always watch what I choose to give my energy and time to 💜 I’m very very very blessed and very very grateful to be able to do what I do & I’ll never really be able to put it into words.
She went ahead to thank Eazi for believing in her.
