Listen to Mr Eazi's New Single 'Supernova'

Mr Eazi promises to spoil his love with "things from Fashion Nova" on his cheeky new single.

Mr Eazi has done a lot in 2019. He made his Coachella debut, launched his business, and has featured on several songs and projects, including Walshy Fire's "Call Me," Blow My Mind" with Ugandan-Swedish artist Sabina Ddumba, and most recently the artist appears on the track "COMO UN BEBÉ" with reggaeton stars J Balvin and Bad Bunny.

The artist continues his run with his first official single of the year "Supernova," a cheeky banger produced by Dre Skull & E Kelly.

On "Supernova" Mr Eazi sings humorously about spoiling his woman with clothes from Fashion Nova, amongst other things. He released an animated "visualizer" to accompany the the just under 2-minute track. Check it out below.

Earlier this month, the Nigerian artist shared the freestyle track "Thank You," to express gratitude for all of his success. We recently spoke to the artist on the blue carpet of the BET Awards in Los Angeles, where he was nominated for Best International Artist. Speaking on the Black excellence on display at the show, the artist said: "as long as music is being made by Black people, African people will never stop being brilliant."

Bobi Wine's Release Detailed in Latest Episode of 'The Messenger'

Trauma is the topic on the podcast's latest episode: "The Ballot or The Bullet."

The latest episode of The Messenger is something to behold.

Created by Sudanese-American rapper Bas, The Messenger throws the spotlight on the thunderous circumstances many African countries face, with a close focus on Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

In his most recent traumatic experience, Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi were released from a nearly two-week military house arrest following the ruling of a Ugandan court. Keeping up with current events and circumstances that Wine finds himself in, the latest episode of the podcast recounts the traumatic events that led to Wine's very public abuse and eventual house arrest.

Upon his release, Wine spoke with The Messenger and had this to say, "I want to remind the world that we went in this election knowing how corrupt the staff of the electoral commission is. We saw this through the campaign and the world saw how much was oppressed, how biased and one sided the electoral commission was, and how much it was in the full grip of General Museveni. And therefore we are going to test every legal test, we shall take every legal test. We shall take every legal step. And indeed we shall take every moral and morally proactive, nonviolent, but legal and peaceful step to see that we liberate ourselves. The struggle has not ended. It is just beginning."
