However, successful applicants are required to have a credible guarantor in order to access the Pay-Later model and this has proven difficult for some otherwise successful applicants in the past. It is due to this challenge that  Mr Eazi has decided to step in and guarantee 5 lucky ones from Ogun State, by residence or origin.

Chika Nwobi, CEO of Decagon, says “ For some who do not have access to someone in their family or network to stand in for them, Mr. Eazi is providing a lifeline  and this is the type of collaboration that will move Nigeria forward.”
