The popularity of Ghanaian musician Eazzy, born Mildred Ashong, one of Ghana’s representatives in the Big Brother StarGame this year, has shot up due to her controversial exit from the game.
Some persons thought Eazzy’s boycott of the eviction show would have sent her down the drains of Africa as regards her career but the musician has almost become the most popular house mate aside Zainab.
Nicknamed the “stubborn housemate”, Mildred has used the platform to promote her music massively in South Africa.
Her song ‘Wengeze’ is receiving great airplay in the Big Brother House and is being streamed on the internet in South Africa.
Knowing the royalty system in South Africa, Mildred has and will hit the jackpot.
When asked what made enter the Big Brother StarGame, she answered, “I’ve always wanted a platform across Africa to promote my music and that opportunity came at the right time.
I’m glad I took that opportunity and it is paying off very well.”
In a related development, Kennis Music in Nigeria (which also manages BBA Housemate Goldie) has concluded a deal with Blaq Kapricorn for Eazzy to join an upcoming tour in Nigeria in the coming months.
