So I'm in one of my OD'ing moods today. I think I may have just abused a song hehe!! Abused
in a good way(I'm not into all those shady somethngs *side eye*). The song in question is by a
young Nigerian female emcee named Eva. Full name, Eva Alordiah and the title of the song is "

If that is your reaction, well na 4 ur pocket be that. Hehe!! Ok on a more serious note, I
obviously don't expect everyone to like the song. I mean if you love british music you should
love this song. Its quite similar to something Dj Ironik did. Ok here goes nothing http://

inspired the song. She said:

Acropolis album. I was listening to d song and it connected wiv me in different ways. I decided
to put down words to how I was feeling at that time and I rapped over the song. It was done in
2hours- my fastest yet!".
Goes to prove in my opinion that you don't have to hibernate and carry out 30 day rituals for a
song before it sounds good. I loved the fact she was very audible and her songs didn't sound
amateurish like most of the "rap hits"(if your body scratches you here, then I'm referring to
you :p) we see from Naija today. I'm expecting great things from this female emcee and I guess
only time will tell. Nono has stamped her seal of approval(you are of course entitled to your
Below are the links to two of her songs;
