Recall, Mr Eazi had flagged the “emPawa” initiative in November, 2018, to help African talents foster their art.
“EmPawa is an initiative set up with the goal of finding Africa’s next batch of superstars. The mission is simple; to uncover independent, emerging, talented artistes and to provide them with the resources and exposure to launch their own careers,” Mr Eazi said.
The initiative did not failed as Joeboy, Dunnie and Lady Donli remain major beneficiaries from the scheme.
