Mr. Eazi is of the opinion that the growth of Africa’s creative economy depends on Afrobeats.

Keep in mind that the well-known entrepreneur and musician recently preached the gospel of African music in Los Angeles at the 2023 Milken Global Conference.

speaking with EbonyLife Group CEO Mo Abudu; Prince Jacon Osinachi, co-founder of AfrofutureDAO; and Laolu Senbanjo, a visual artist, emphasized that Afrobeats is the next frontier for growing and bolstering the regional creative economy.

As well as working on the economy, Mr Eazi added that music from the landmass assists with sending out African items abroad and shape worldwide culture.

The artist argues that Afrobeats preserves our heritage and fosters cultural exchange by doing this.

Moderated by Aubrey Hruby, a co-founder of Tofino Capital, the theme for the conversation was “Africa: Next Frontier for the Creative Economy.”

Closing his part of the panel discussion, Mr Eazi spoke on the challenges in the African music industry, which include equity participation in terms of investment and infrastructure.

Noting that intellectual property is one way to create an orange economy for the African music industry, he encouraged upcoming African artists to see themselves as start ups and invest more in their intellectual property.

The artist’s comments come after he recently created a new pan-African music group, Choplife Soundsystem to put a modern, African twist on soundsystem culture.

Mr Eazi was inspired to take the vibe and spirit of his successful Ghana holiday party Detty Rave on the road with the Choplife Soundsystem .

So far, he has had events in Cotonou, Benin; Stockholm, Sweden; Kigali, Rwanda and put out the first official ‘Choplife Soundsystem’ single titled Wena.
