Mr Eazi Talks Pressure To Become An Engineer
Award-winning Nigerian singer, Mr Eazi, in a recent chat with Saturday Beats has revealed that his parents wanted him to have a proper job by being a Master’s degree holder in Engineering and Business Management.
According to the “Surrender” hitmaker, he had to leave the comfort his parents provided for him to chart his own path in life.
“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.”
