International media, Vogue, claims Mr. Eazi is putting West African Style on the map. The site also said Mr Eazi’s Afrocentric and laid-back style embodies the African man. The Starboy singer also talked about his signature hat, jewelry choices and more.
“Eazi also reps Ghana in his wardrobe, which is characterized by a mix of contemporary streetwear and traditional textiles—including his now-signature straw hat—from the Ashanti region and the north of the country. He’s handsome and stylish, with a slim build and close-cropped hair, and has a penchant for playful jewelry, bright colors, and narrow-cut blazers and turtlenecks. Asked about his fashion sense, he told us ahead of a big show in New York (tonight at PlayStation Theater) that everywhere he goes, Ghana and Nigeria go with him.” according to Vogue.
Eazi said, “I wore an outfit that was the most controversial thing in fashion this year. The materials used for these designs are from what we call the Ghana-must-go bags. At one point, there was a lot of Ghanaians in Nigeria because of the oil boom. The Nigerian government asked the Ghanaians to go back. There was a mass exodus, and they would use these bags, because they didn’t have time to get a proper suitcase. Going back and forth between Nigeria and Ghana, I would notice that the businesswomen, to bring goods back and forth, would use the Ghana-must-go bags.
I feel like this bag now represents me: Mr Eazi, the Yoruba boy who went from Nigeria to Ghana. I called my stylist and said, “I want to dress in Ghana-must-go!” And I said I wanted it tailored in the most prestigious traditional Nigerian fit. A lot of people got mad! They said they’d fight me in the street. But I’ve also seen people wearing it on Instagram. It’s getting the youth to wear the Ghana-must-go. At the end of the day, it’s all love.”
