Mars Eze – King Solo EP
Mars Eze is a singer and rapper whose music is a rare blend of Afrobeats, Hip-Hop and RnB. His versatility comes to the fore on his debut project, King Solo EP, as he effortlessly floats from the Hip-Hop bounce of opening track “Fly” to the Afrobeats percussion and melodies of follow-up track “Queen Sheba.” He spits tough sixteens on “Bad Pass,” and sings a fan-favorite appreciation song to God in “Grace.” On “Kolo,” he once again employs traditional Afrobeats elements to promise undying love to his lover, before a touching RnB ballad titled “Lost in Space” rounds off the tape.
His music is influenced by Fela Kuti, Oliver de Coque, Bright Chimezie, Celine Dion, Jay Z and Kanye West, among others. With such a wide range of influences, it is no wonder Mars Eze’s music sounds like a potent, beautiful cocktail.
On stage he exudes a certain confidence and spectacle reminiscent of African kings of yore like Haile Selassie. It is no wonder his fan-base has continued to grow in geometric proportions, leaning towards a cult-like following.
He has been featured on The New Yorker, NATIVE magazine, and Guardian Magazine’s Top 10 Artistes to Watch List.
