Mr. Oluwatosin Ajibade, known in showbiz cycles as Mr Eazi has instituted a scholarship scheme to support needy students at the C. K. Tedam University of Technology & Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS).
The award is expected to cover the full fees of 100 students each year. To do this, Mr. Eazi has made available two hundred thousand Ghana Cedis (GHS200,000.00) as the initial seed money to kick start the scheme. This philanthropic gesture comes in the wake of recent difficulties encountered by many students in the payment of their fees. The deal was brokered by the Registrar of CKT-UTAS, Dr. V.A. Ankamah-Lomotey who is also a close associate of Mr Eazi.
Mr Ajibade is the CEO and founder of emPawa Africa group of companies that has a corporate presence in Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Dubai, and London.
EmPawa Africa has grown to become one of the biggest wholly African-owned entertainment companies on the continent, which leverages Mr Ajibade’s vast experience and network to provide a gateway for upcoming and established acts across the world.
In addition, Mr. Ajibade performs under the name Mr Eazi – a household name across Africa and growing in international prominence. He has performed numerous shows, including headlining the Ghana Music Festival and performing sold-out shows around the world. He is also a recipient of several prestigious international awards.
Prior to launching a huge career in showbiz, Mr. Ajibade had enrolled at the Coventry University in the UK where he studied and obtained a Master of Science in Engineering Business Management (M.Sc. Engineering Business Management) in 2015, having obtained a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology, Kumasi, Ghana in 2011.
