Ezé is a multifaceted artist from Burkina Faso who celebrates his immigrant background. Born in Ouagadougou, Ezékiel Wendtoin Nikiema, alias Ezé, only became black in Germany. By this he does not mean his skin color, but rather the political dimension of being black in Germany. The award-winning artist empowers himself with his music, in a society in which black Africans are put into many drawers, from which Ezé breaks out powerfully.



With his new DIY album "Black became I" he once again becomes a bridge builder between people and doesn't mince his words: Without hiding from painful topics, he writes about his own experiences full of punchlines, clarity and, in between, humor Irony. His fourth album is Ezé's most political and at the same time most personal album to date. It also opens a new musical chapter.

Rhythmically, “Black became I” goes back to its Afro roots.

Dynamic and danceable sounds kiss the heart of cosmopolitanism and are primarily inspired by Afro-beats, Afro-trap, Amapiano, drill and West African vibes.

Ezé sings and raps mainly in German about racism, escape and migration, climate crisis, masculinity and vulnerability.
As usual, the post-migrant album will be multilingual. The diversity of the album is also reflected in the features with various dedicated guest artists.
