“This record was really fun to make,” the Nigerian superstar Mr Eazi says, “and it’s crazy how it went from hearing a K4mo intro in the studio with Fred Again (Headieone, Stormzy ft BurnaBoy, Ed Sheeran), to me jumping on it and then Diplo hopping in! And Walshy hitting me up to say it’s a banger—next thing Nicki is on it! Been a journey really, like two years in the making and I can’t wait to perform it at my next festival!”
Nigerian-born, UK-based artist K4mo calls the song a “contagious hit that will remain a classic for years to come.”
“Oh My Gawd” follows Eazi’s One Day You Will Understand” EP ft King Promise, C Natty and emPawa collaborators.
Mr. Eazi is a global Afrobeats icon who received mainstream success in 2016 on the international stage.
As a recording artist, the Nigerian multihyphenate is the voice behind Afropop hits “Pour Me Water,” “Skin Tight” (featuring Efya) and “Leg Over,” as well as groundbreaking collaborations with the likes of Beyoncé, Bad Bunny and J Balvin.
