From Eva with Love

When I posted all these on twitter to my followers, I didn't see it as much of a big deal. For me I was simply taking y'all into a brief journey through my life.
And then Abara - @iamabara on twitter took each tweet of this short story and updated his blog with it. When I read it again, I finally understood it the way people saw it.

It made so much sense, I didn't even think it was that important. I am glad that these tweets touched you guys in some way, it means a lot to be able to do that. Thanks to Abara for keeping this and letting me see through my own life.

"Right after sec sch, I wanted to work so bad. Jamb kept jambing me & I just didn't wan sit arnd. So I began auditioning for movie roles..@16 Got one for a series to be aired on BenTv at d time. After shooting 2episodes in a supporting role- d director began yiking me so I walked!!

I had always been a lover of photography so I decided to start out in modeling. But it turned out,every girl in Lagos was a model! *sigh* Every audition was packed full! D hustle became annoying.

Then I had 2go to Uni.. Uni turned out to be a private sch so I was locked in. To ease my soul, I got back on stage- as a dancer. Yeps! I dance. It kept me sane. For some reason, I fell in love with Makeup&fashion.

My passion for Makeup artistry soon became a business & I began charging babes a fee! I was making extra small change from Doing makeup and tinzz.. Not becos Dad wasn't settling me enuf but becos getting paid was a joy..

 My Mom has always been sewing clothes in d house in her free time- that made me wanna be in Fashion so bad- I began designing when I was 13! I decided to recruit my own group of great tailors and got them to bring my designs to life. Mostly dress shirts which I made for guys.

But I needed money! All the time. And my monthly allowance for school just wouldn't do it.. Now here's what I did.. *this would shock u..* 

I studied girls. They loved to look fly and they couldn't/wouldn't wanna pay fly money. So I took my hustling to Yaba.. I spent my pocket money buying Okrika from Yaba to go sell in School. Imagine buying a shirt for #300 and selling for #1000! I was rich!!

 Babes would practically flood my room to buy stuff! Soon I added handbags & shoes. I was making enuf money to fund my clothing line ☺ So, I made my first #100,000 trading Yaba sturvs. I didn't have to even bend down to select anymore- my guys dem wld call me to supply. 

Music!!! Music was always a part of me. I started out wiv Zdon Paporella in 04, I got tired of going to d studio¬ recording so I dulled. Always told myself I could rap. So even when I was forming some Michael Jackson sturvs and dancing on stage, I still wanted to hold d mic.. 

Then, M.I released 'Crowd Mentality' and I was like Choi!!!! As soon as he dropped 'Safe'- I told my friend, "Yo, I'm gon do that." I did! Capital gave me a platform to record it and Suspect was far too kind. That was how I played into the booth & released 'I dey play' ☺

 So imagine how I felt d day I got a call from M.I himself telling me how he had been listening to my jam& how he thot I was better than him 

Today- I have a good following. Producers willing to give their time & studio for free, artists wanting me on their shit-& ♥ from the fans

 I have a Makeup Business, I'm starting out my own clothing line, I'm a Rapper/Entertainer, Writer and Blogger. I still Hustle thru it all.

 I have made mistakes, I have fucked up several times, I have lost friends- I have made more...Ve been thru pain, ve seen hate..Shed tears.. In The end God helps. God hears. God heals. Whatever u want, u can get if u stretch out to get it. No matter how long. Hold God's hand..

Life's principle to success is -GIVING. You can't go wrong when u give. Just keep giving. To d poor, to d church. Pay ur tithe. GIVE. 

And when all is said and done, Pray! May God bless you and keep u safe. I love you but God loves you more.. ♥.
