Jeremy Boateng is a name you might associate with modelling, yet be prepared to meet a new side to him. Working under the moniker Ezza, the Londoner has plunged into the music world, having just released his new track ‘The Kick Off’. Keeping his integrity at the heart of this new path, he explores the ins and outs of what he’s gone through in order to get where he is. From the exhausting effects of the industry and the constant changes made to his appearance, to the perks of the job and the importance of those around him, the bars Ezza churns out bars are deep, smooth, and undeniably real.

His modelling career has made him a natural with the camera, and the video for ‘The Kick Off’ is no exception. Opening with a brooding stare down the lens while bathed in a red glow, Ezza’s grip is strong from the get go. As if that weren’t enough, complementing the release comes a zine of the same name, with the visuals further demonstrating his multi-disciplinary talents. Composed of an extensive editorial, the images round off a three-fold release that sets Ezza on a promising road, whichever direction he takes.
