Ghanian singer, Mr Eazi, has pledged the sum of $100,000 for emerging African artistes registered to vote.
The ‘leg over crooner made the pledge through the yet-to-launch Eazi Sound Foundation on Wednesday.

Most artistes who have attained a certain level of success in their careers usually use their fame to help upcoming artistes but Mr Eazi’s number one criterion is peculiar.
He said only artistes registered to vote will be eligible to the fund. His pro-politics condition is an obvious push to get the youth more involved in government.
He wrote on Instagram,
“Eazi Sound Foundation launches 1st August & we have set aside $100,000 for African Emerging artists.
“No 1 criteria is you must be registered to vote in your country!”
Meanwhile, Nigerian youths have also been encouraged to register for their permanent voter cards in order to exercise their franchise in the 2019 election.
