In her own words she said “Music really helps me express myself in ways I couldn’t ever imagine possible. As soon as I step onto the stage to perform, I get lost in a completely new world that is magical and selfless.” A fan and avid listener of such impeccable lyrists as Eminem, Talib Kweli, Rakim, JayZ, Eva’s dynamic delivery and lyrical abilities shine through effortlessly.

Music Career

EVA began a career in music borne out of a deepened love for the HipHop/Rap genre, one that would later go on to propel her into a fast paced ride in Entertainment. According to her “I wanted to record a song so desperately at the time. I had just graduated from Secondary school and it seemed perhaps that I had a lot of time on my hands before University. Everything I have achieved today as a Rapper/Entertainer has exceeded expectations, and it’s all been a surprise, it’s much bigger than what I prepared for -that is if I prepared at all. All I wanted to do was Rap”

With the successful release of her first recording, a mixtape single she collaborated on with Producer Tha Suspect early in 2009, Eva found for herself, a much needed will to stay on doing music.

The budding Rapper however had to finish University as she was then in her Finals, studying for a degree in Computer Science. She took this time off the spotlight to hone her lyrical abilities and music writing skills.
