Q: Yeah, London get’s very cold. You have a very unique yet exciting style. Especially the amazing hats. What would you say inspires your fashion choices?
A: I think for me, the major fashion inspiration is just like how I feel. You know, how I feel. That’s how it is man, nothing long. I’m just inspired by how I feel day on day.
Q: And for our bonus questions. What is MR EAZI’s favourite meal?
