Mr. Eazi has commissioned a distinct physical artwork to represent each song on the album from a different African visual artist, creating a groundbreaking mix of African music and art. He chose Johannesburg, South Africa-based visual artist Sinalo Ngcaba for “Chop Time, No Friend,” whose creation also appears on the album cover of Mr. Eazi’s most recent project with ChopLife Soundsystem, Chop Life, Vol. 1: Mzansi Chronicles.

The video was directed by Allison Swank Owen, who previously worked with Mr. Eazi on 2019’s “Lagos to London: The Documentary,” and was motivated by the amazing creative spirit of Dakar, Senegal.

“Chop Time, No Friend” is a fun return to the Banku Music sound that Mr. Eazi pioneered and made popular with his early singles and mixtapes. According to Mr. Eazi, the phrase “Chop Time, No Friend” is quite popular in Ghana and is frequently inscribed on the front or sides of buses. “That means you don’t worry about anyone while you’re eating. All that matters to you right now is having fun.”
