For the sake of those of you who were still cuddling your pillows in this Lagos rain, and have no idea what’s going on between Mr Eazi and Runtown , let’s take a quick recap for you while you sip on your tea!
It all started when “Leg Over” singer, Mr Eazi claimed that he pioneered the Ghanaian-Nigerian fusion Afrobeats that Nigerian music artistes use now.

In his own words,
“the speed at which I’ve moved is scary to me cause it took my contemporaries 5, 6 years. It’s like everybody just realized that yo what formula is Mr Eazi using…ok we’re gonna end up doing it’.
Now, we know that the singer didn’t mention any names yeah… but who else is more conversant with the Ghanaian-Nigerian fusion thingy than “Mad over you” crooner, Runtown himself?
In subtle response, Runtown says he’s about to “drop something new and please don’t get mad when I finish what you think you started”
Bout to drop that new sound again and pls Don't get mad when i finish what you think you started 😆😂

Now Mr Eazi won’t let that go easily as he’s taken to his Social media page to qoute rapper, Jay Z’s lyrics from DJ Khaled’s song, I Got The Keys.
Mr Eazi Says:
Niggas always asking me the key
‘Til you own your own you can’t be free
‘Ti you’re on your won you can’t be me
How you still a slave in 2017??!! LOL #sameshit
Well, seems like there’s enough heat between the both of them to warm us up in this rain yeah?
