Ghanaian-Nigerian artist Mr. Eazi has released a new song titled “Legalize,” The song was produced by Nonso Amadi, Haitian DJ Michael Brun, and E Kelly. “Legalize,” the artist’s first official release of the year, is also one of the songs off his soon-to-be-released album. In “Legalize,” Mr. Eazi sings about his love for his muse and his intention to legalize their union. He sings, “I don’t wanna do no koro, baby, make we legalize. My whole world dey stop anytime you look into my eyes. Even if you don’t know, baby, I go make you realize.” The song is not just an ordinary love song; it also gives us a glimpse of the relationship between the artist and Temi Otedola. Recall that Mr. Eazi popped the question earlier this year in Italy, and the duo revealed via their podcast “How Far” that their wedding plans have commenced. The music video which has been released shows the romantic proposal and their wonderful time in Venice.
Alongside the song’s release, Mr. Eazi also collaborated with a Benin-based painter Patricorel to unveil a short film tagged “The Legalize Art Experience.” The documentary, directed by Nigerian filmmaker Demola Falomo, showcases Mr. Eazi performing “Legalize” for the first time with Patricorel creating the cover art of the song in the background. Tapping into his love for promoting art, the artist has also revealed that each song off the album will have its art piece from different African artists. This is a commendable act by Mr. Eazi as this gesture promotes art and creates an avenue for underground African artists to showcase their talent and make a profit. Listeners will not only experience good music but will also be exposed to art.
While speaking about the new single, Mr. Eazi said, “My new single “Legalize,” marks the beginning of my new album cycle! It’s so special to me & this video with Temi Otedola is everything.” Well, we can’t wait to listen to the new project, but in the meantime, listen to “Legalize” and watch the music video here and enjoy.
