INTRODUCTION

Eva is a popular female Nigerian rapper  who has a lot of singles to her name, she is said to be among the top female rappers in Nigeria.

EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND

Eva Alordiah was born to Nigerian parents from Delta State. She got introduced to music by her mother who listened to musical recordings from the 70’s and 80’s. Eva has cited Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Sade Adu, The Carpenters, John Lennon and Don Williams as her musical influences. Eminem’s “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” inspired Eva to pursue a professional rap career. When she was 7 years old, she partook in several forms of art while in her adolescence. She sang in her church’s choir, and joined the drama club while in secondary school. Growing up, Eva was fond of drawing and reading books.

At age 10, she wrote a short story in her notebook, and dreamt of being an author. After learning of Eminem, she began to write rap verses. Eva’s love for words and rhyming pulled her deeper into the Hip hop genre. At age 16, Eva found herself balancing school and business. With an ambition to make money and become independent, she started auditioning for acting and modelling roles. Eva sold second-hand clothing in school as a means to an end. Eva began her career as a photography model. She took pictures and auditioned for several jobs. She graduated with a degree in Computer Science from Bowen University.

In 2009, Eva released “I Dey Play” as her first ever studio recording. The song features Tha Suspect and was recorded over Lil Wayne’s “A Milli” instrumental. Eva was featured on “Make ’em Say”, a song from one of Strbuttah’s mixtapes. The music video for the song, released in January 2011, was created by Rcube of Strbuttah. Eva made her TV debut in the music video. She later appeared on the female version of Tha Suspect’s song “I No Send You”. The video for “I No Send You” was released in March 2011.

CAREER AND LIFE

Eva started working on her debut EP, The GIGO E.P, as an independent artist. On 20 November 2011, she released the EP which is an acronym for Garbage in Garbage Out. The EP was released under 3UD management. It consists of 9 songs and was released for free digital download. The EP was supported by the singles “I Done Did It”, “Down Low”, “Garbage Out (Your Fada)” and “High”. The EP’s production was handled by Sossick, Tintin and Gray Jon’z. “I Done Did it” was released as the EP’s lead single; it was produced by Sossick. In a 2012 interview with Halley Bondy of MTV Iggy, Eva said she was honored to have worked with the aforementioned producers. She also said she had fun recording the EP.

Eva released the second single “High” in 2012. The music video for the single, directed by Mex, was released on 24 May 2012. It was uploaded onto YouTube at a total length of 4 minutes and 37 seconds. The video premiered on MTV Base in May 2012. When the video was released, many people misconstrued the meaning of the song and thought that it alluded to drug use. In the aforementioned interview with Bondy of MTV Iggy, Eva said that the song is about overcoming the struggles and hardships of life.

It was reported in May 2012 that Eva signed a record deal with Da Trybe 2.0, a record label owned by record producer and recording artist eLDee. In November 2013, Ariya Today reported that Eva was dropped from Trybe Records. According to the press release signed by the management of the recording outfit, Eva’s ideas and foresight didn’t align with the label’s plans. In an interview with Bellanaija, Eva denied reports about being signed to Trybe Records despite the press release statements from the label. After the Trybe Records saga in 2012, she took a break from the music scene and spent time reflecting on her craft.
