Folarin Falana, aka Falz, a well-known Nigerian rapper, activist, and actor, has been jokingly urged to “snatch” Temi Otedola from Mr. Eazi by her fans. The duo had a photo shoot for a reputable company they work as influencers for, and according to internet users, Falz and Temi Otedola should post pictures of themselves on their separate Instagram sites and “get it going” together.
Many people were so taken with how adorable Falz and Temi looked together that they completely missed the point they were attempting to convey. The fact that Temi Otedola is engaged to her longtime lover and now fiancé, singer Mr. Eazi, is no longer a surprise.
Fans of the stars threw caution to the wind and jokingly requested that Falz get married to Temi rather than Mr. Eazi. A joke on social media that has become widely accepted.
Meanwhile, Mr. Eazi, a celebrity musician, entrepreneur, and global nomad of Nigerian descent, recently announced the formation of Choplife Soundsystem, a brand-new pan-African music ensemble. As its resident DJ, the group will feature DJ Edu, a Kenyan-born afrobeats selector and tastemaker residing in the UK, along with a loose collective of contributing DJs, musicians, and producers from all over the African continent.
Bringing the best African music to a global audience is Mr. Eazi’s goal as the group’s lead vocalist on records and as its MC, or Minister of Enjoyment, at live performances.
The group’s name, Choplife Soundsystem, is a recognized West African pidgin slang expression that means “enjoy life” in English. This expression epitomizes Mr. Eazi’s upbeat approach and is a defense of music that appeals to the soul. The traditional sound system that serves as the cornerstone of Jamaican music culture is called the “Soundsystem” in the name. A successful approach in Jamaica is usually a mobile group of DJs and MCs who perform music together at events like festivals and street parties.
Choplife Soundsystem’s founder Mr. Eazi wants to create a completely original sound by fusing Jamaican dancehall with afrobeats. So Choplife Soundsystem has assembled a diverse group of African musicians, DJs, and producers to introduce a fresh sound to music fans worldwide. Their goal is to combine fragments of music from around the continent to make music that inspires and unites people.
There’s little doubt that Choplife Soundsystem will succeed thanks to Mr. Eazi’s talent and drive. Because of his success as a singer and entrepreneur who founded the innovative music streaming service, emPawa Africa, Mr. Eazi is already a prominent figure in African music. Thanks to his illustrious career, this new group of aspiring African musicians will undoubtedly experience priceless success.
