Mr Eazi, the Nigerian musician and business mogul, is expanding his empire into the world of sports as he becomes a shareholder of the Cape Town Tigers, a South African basketball club. This move comes after the launch of his online sports betting and gaming franchise, "betPawa."
According to Mr Eazi, his decision to purchase shares in the Tigers was inspired by his mentor, American rapper Jay Z, who is also a shareholder in a New York City basketball team. The musician made this revelation via a tweet on January 24.
The Cape Town Tigers, based in the Gugulethu Township of Cape Town, were founded in 2019 and have quickly made a name for themselves in the South African basketball scene. The team won their first national championship in 2021 and successfully defended it on August 22, 2022.
Not only do the Tigers dominate domestically in the South African National Basketball Championship, but they also represent the country internationally in the Basketball Africa League (BAL). With Mr. Eazi on board as a shareholder, the future looks bright for the Cape Town Tigers.
