We used to know him as Eyezman but he switched things up on us. Know he goes by 48 Beers.
Why 48 beers?
“Well, if you love beer, how excited will you get if I were to bring you 48 beers? I’m guessing very happy… I’m all about partying and having a good time and my new music is all about that,” he says.
Currently signed under Cliquish Records he’s worked with numerous local and international artists such as Qonja, Mappz, 2kO & Koxa, Brain the Tool, Ali Keys (one of Cassper Nyovest’s producers), Taz Goemi from Tanzania to name but a few.
