Easy said the confusion, which you can also spot in this article, had caused damage to his brand and decided to take action. He revealed to have spoken to a lawyer in the UK and told him to urge Eazi's team to "cease and desist from the use of a brand" similar to the reggae star's stage name.
The 51-year-old started music over 20 years ago and some of his biggest hits include Drive Me Crazy, Bashment Time, Funny Man and even appeared on the soundtrack for the movie After the Sunset.
According to The Gleaner, this is not the first time Mr Easy has gone to court over his name. About five years ago, he was demanded to drop the name by European EasyJet airlines and was even taken to court.
However, he offered records that showed he had been using the name since 1986 and this won him the case.
