the Leg Over singer revealed that he did not own a car.

In his explanation , he stated that he preferred using Uber. He further said ,

“If your self-esteem is based on how much you have in your bank account , then you have a serious self-esteem issue. Right from when I sang my very first song , someone offered me N80m record deal but I turned it down and at the time , I did not have N300 , 000 in my account.

“My first record deal offer from the UK was £356 , 000 , I turned it down but at the time , I had done a tour and the total amount I earned was £12 , 500. I used the money to shoot the videos of some of my songs. I was left with £20; they were offering me £365 , 000 , but I turned it down. The reason I did that was because my value was not dependent on what was in my account.

“Till today , I use Uber but I do not care and by the way , I don’t even pay for the ride because I was given Uber credit. But if you see me in the Uber vehicle and feel that Mr. Eazi is poor , what is my business (with that)? For instance , everybody around me has cars , and besides , I buy cars for people.

If it makes sense for me to use an Uber , why should I drive? Why would I pay about N100m for a car that I would probably drive just five times a year?

“There are better things to do with that money. In the short time , I have spent on earth , I have made a lot of money. While I was into mining , I had so much money that I was living at a place that was a stone’s throw away from the airport in Accra and I was paying my rent in dollars.

“I was making a lot of money. That shows you how expensive it was but I went from there to squatting with my friend in a one-room apartment. I was sleeping on the floor in his room.

Also , when I was doing the business of selling beverages , we started with a crate and in a short while , we began to import four containers every two weeks. From importing four containers every two weeks , we went back to nothing. In my life ,

I have had ups and down. If my self-worth was based on material things , I would have killed myself.”

The singer admitted that he had received a lot of backlash on social media simply because of his relationship with Temi , one of the daughters of a billionaire oil magnate , Femi Otedola.

However , Mr Eazi said such things would never faze him.

“People can say what they want to say and if you want to let everything they say about you bother you , then you are not going to live , especially when you are in the public eye.

“You have to realise that as an entertainer , your life becomes a form of entertainment to others. I really do not care about what anybody thinks. He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world , so why care about what the world is saying?” The singer said.
