One of Nigeria’s rappers, Eva Alordiah has disclosed the reasons behind her decision to step away from what appeared to be a flourishing music career, opting for an extended break.
In a recent post on her X page, the rapper rapper shared reasons why he pulled back from doing music with her fans.
Eva disclosed that she struggled with maintaining her pace and, at a certain point, found herself battling depression, worsened by her financial struggles.
However, she disclosed that it required a strong sense of self-motivation to regain her composure, achieved through dedicating her time to reading, as well as engaging in various recreational and entrepreneurial pursuits.
Thinking about how much she has changed from being sad to now running many businesses, Eva said that the hard times were worth it.
“A few years ago I walked away from a seemingly “successful” music career. I was burnt out. Depression had taken an almost permanent seat beside me.
My bank balance was just enough to buy my next meal. If there was a picture of the phrase “Starving Artist”, it would have been my damn face.
One day, I said “Fuck it! I got myself here, I’m gonna get myself out. I invested the next 3 years in relentless self development:
– building my body
– reading ferociously
– taking care of my mind
– investing in online courses
– learning how to make money
– building multiple online businesses
I look back and I swear I wouldn’t change a thing! Taking responsibility for my shit helped me get my life back. Today my life is so much better because I was bold enough to say- “Na me fuck up!”
