Mr Eazi reveals the genesis of his catchphrase ‘Zagadat’

Popular Nigerian singer, Mr Eazi has revealed how he created his catchphrase, ‘Zagadat’ with the help of 2face and Beenie Man.


Popular Nigerian singer and entrepreneur, Mr Eazi speaks on how he created the ‘Zagadat’ catchphrase with inspiration of legendary singer, 2BABA and Jamaican dancehall star, Beenie Man.

He revealed that his catchphrase “Zagadat” was influenced by lyrics from 2Face’s song, ‘Nfana Ibaga’ remix featuring Beenie Man.


He made this known during an interview with Capital Xtra, UK, Mr Eazi where he clarified that he couldn’t face copyright issues with the slang because he didn’t utter it in the same manner as it was presented in the song.

In his words;

“Big shout out to Beenie Man. Beenie Man and 2Face. I got my catchphrase ‘Zagadat’ from their song ‘Nfana Ibaga’ remix. From the part, ‘And the Lord say let there be light. Zagazaga za.’ That’s where it’s from, bro.

“I don’t have to give them royalties because I said, ‘Zagadat.’ I didn’t say, Zagagaza za.”
