During an interview with Guardian Nigerian in 2019, the singer told Guardian that he doesn’t own a car. He says,
“Till today, I use Uber but I do not care and by the way, I don’t even pay for the ride because I was given Uber credit. But if you see me in the Uber vehicle and feel that Mr Eazi is poor, what is my business (with that)? For instance, everybody around me has cars, and besides, I buy cars for people. If it makes sense for me to use an Uber, why should I drive? Why would I pay about N100M for a car that I would probably drive five times a year?”
A year after that interview, Mr Eazi bought his first ever car in December 2020. The car is a Range Rover SUV which he shared on his instastories and wrote, “If I end up not being in one place to enjoy my new car I will be upset.” The car is said to cost about 50-100 million naira.

His net worth is estimated to be around $20 billion Recall that last week, news emerged on the internet that Mr Eazi sold his digital audio/video portfolio company called VYDIA at the rate of $1Billion which is over ₦750 billion.
It is safe to say that Mr Eazi is currently the richest musician in Africa.
