In the issue she was described as the “Last Femcee Standing” and the magazine talks to her about her journey as a female rapper in Nigeria, her current projects, her brand and so much more.
See excerpts below.
On being an overall creative: I guess I must say I have been blessed with quite a number of talents, some not yet developed. I am conscious not to get myself into too many things however, as this can rob any creative person of the power to focus. Asides music and performing which is my core, I am also a Makeup artist, a writer and a fashion designer. I love Makeup. I know how to do it and the joy for me is to teach others and this is what I am currently doing on my YouTube page “theEvaAlordiahLife”. The intention is to have connected with at least 1 Million African girls around the world. Writing for me is something I remember quite vividly that I wanted to do as a child and in the past I have written for magazines and blogs, but right now I am also writing books. People aren’t reading anymore, especially younger people, and this is the sect that houses my core fan base. I figured if they followed me then they’d love to read me too and if I can get them to read then I most certainly would keep on writing. Doing other things asides music is probably how I stay sane you know?
On if she was signed to a record label: Of course things would be different. Hopefully in a good way. Not much would change however in terms of the underlying structure of things but it will be a step that further enhanced whatever it is that we may have going on right now.
