Two Nigerian Artistes Who Gained Fame By Coming To Ghana

Ghana for a long time has had a bond with Nigeria and has become a hub for many Nigerians who are also seeking greener pastures.

Banku, his self-coined fusion of Ghanaian and Nigerian musical influences, has taken Eazi far beyond just those two nations closest to his heart, finding support not just in countries with large African diaspora, including here in the UK, but also places as far as Chile, who remarkably rank among the biggest supporters of Eazi’s music.”
