Hip-hop star, Mr Eazi, has revealed that his parents wanted him to have a proper job, being a Master’s degree holder in Engineering and Business Management.
Mr Eazi during a recent chat with punchng.com revealed that he had to leave the comfort his parents provided for him to chart his own path in life. He said;
“I would not lie and say that my childhood was tough. People define silver spoon differently but one thing I would say is that my parents always made sure I had everything that I needed.
“I went to good schools, so obviously I was not suffering but in finding my own path, I started to experience struggles.
“I have a Master’s degree in Engineering and Business Management but I decided to become an entrepreneur so I had to suffer by myself.
“I had to go through gold mining, distribution of beverages in Ghana and also having my phone company in Nigeria. I did all of that out of my own volition.
“If I had stuck to my parents’ plan, I could have finished school and got a proper job. I had job offers but I chose my path.
“I could have toed my father’s path because he is an engineer and working in the aviation sector. I could have been in that sector but I chose my path.
“When you choose your path, you struggle. To be honest, my parents were pressured to compel me to get a proper job.
“For instance, I graduated from the university in 2011 and I was not even 19 years old at the time.”
