This news has brought a big shock to most of Mr Eazi’s fans and followers, after the Leg Over singer revealed that he did not own a car,during an interview with Saturday Beats.
While explaning, he claimed that he preferred using Uber.
“If your self-esteem is just based only on how much you’ve got loaded in your account, then you have issues with your self-esteem.
When I droped my first track, somebody offered N80m record deal to me, however, I turned it down and at the time, knowing fully in me that I never had even up to N300,000 in my bank account.
“I also turned down my first record deal offer from United Kingdom £356,000, but that period, I had a tour from which I earned about £12,500.
I however made used the money in shooting videos for some of my songs. After which, I was only left with £20; I got another oppurtunity of which I was offered £365,000, but I turned it down.
“Even Till today, I make use of Uber but I still do not care, I don’t even pay for the ride because I was given Uber credit.
Whenever you see me in an Uber taxi and start thinking or feeling that I, Mr Eazi is poor, I just have no business with that.
I know everybody around me owns a car(s), besides, I do buy cars for people. If it makes sense for me to use an Uber, why should I thenvdrive? I see no reason why I should pay about N100m for a car that I would probably just drive just five times a year.
“I’ve got better and more reasonable things to do with that money. In the short time I have spent on earth, I’ve made a lot of money. During the period I was into mining, I had much money, I was living at a stone throw away from the airport in Accra, paying my rent in dollars.
“I was making a lot of money. But I went from there to squat with a friend in his one-room apartment. I slept on the floor in his room.
Also, when I sold beverages, we started with a crate and in a short while, we started importing containers in two weeks cycle. From importing four containers every two weeks, we moved back to nothing.
In my life, I met real ups and down. So, if my self-worth was based majorly on material things, I would have killed myself long ago.”
Mr Eazi agreed that he has gotten a lot of backlash via social media, simply because of his relationship with Temi, a daughter of a billionaire oil magnate, Femi Otedola.
However, he said that such things would never faze him.
“People are free to say whatever they want to say, when you let all they say about you to bother you, then you are not going to live.
“You have to realise that as an entertainer, your life becomes a form of entertainment to others. I don’t care about what anyone thinks about me. He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world, so why care about what the world is saying?”
