It official. ICS blogazine can authoritatively tell you that the contract between rapper Eva Alordiah and popular record label Trybe Records has been dissolved.
The news was made known by the management of Trybe Records in a statement exclusively released to NET. It reads:
‘Trybe Records and Eva Alordiah have agreed to terminate her recording contract effective immediately. Trybe Records’ vision is to discover and nurture the talents of our artists while operating with purpose, valuing relationships with our partners within the industry, and being persistent in creating and releasing quality music. Unfortunately, over the past 5 months Eva’s vision has not aligned with ours and thus, both parties have agreed to separate.
We wish Eva the best in her future endeavors and plan on continuing towards our goal of creating quality music for Nigeria and beyond‘.
NET investigations however reveal that the label is being modest with the statement. Inside sources told us Eva had since her signing in June been more than a handful to manage and/or coordinate with, demanding for more than what she was offered at all times and that the label was basically ‘tired of her antics’.
‘She never fit in from the start, always trying to stand out from the rest. She was always asking for more even when eLDee and co gave her an almost perfect platform to blow up‘, a friend close to the rapper tells us.
Eva might look like a rookie but some would tell you she does has a bit of history in the entertainment world. Right before her footling prominence and hook up with Trybe, she had worked with a few other managers-promoters.
Eva’s name was first heard while working with rapper M.I on his debut album, after a bit of running, she hooked up with former COOL FM OAP BooBoo who worked as her manager along with Obinna Agwu. Problems prevailed and they call it quits.
Eva also met up with PXC director MEX who tried signing her to his budding label but both parties fell out after she was allegedly ‘always rude’ to him, according to those familiar with their relationship.
NET gathered that she was also considered a replacement for Kel at CAPital Hill records but the deal wasn’t pursued as she was considered a ‘high risk’ decision to make.
Eva now works with her manager Ugo Date Izeogu who we learn is also her boyfriend. ‘Eva needs to throw away her attitude. She thinks bigger than herself and it’s killing her‘.
Some will however argue that that is what has gotten her this far, and she sits as one of the more promising female acts around now; featuring on Psquare and Bez‘s albums and performing at The Headies.
The rapper has acknowledged her parting ways but hasn’t gotten back to our queries over the news. ‘I’ll have to call you back, I’m driving‘, she told our reporter over the phone.
