Nigerian Singer Eva is now “Evaezi” – New Look, New Sound – Find Out Why

Published

 on

In the “google age”, it is a difficult task for performers to come up with unique names that stand out. Nigerian musician, Eva (D’Diva) has tackled this challenge by revamping her brand and reverting to her native name, EVAEZI pronounced (AY-VAY-ZEE). Evaezi is an Isoko name which means “A pure and honest heart/soul”.

Evaezi is nominated in two categories for the 2011 Headies (Hip Hop World Awards). She is up for the Recording of the Year award and Best Female Vocal performance award as well. She is also working on her next album tentatively titled “The Core of Me“.

Talking about her new look and new sound, Evaezi shared that “My music and I are evolving. My sound today is not what it used to be when I first came out in 2006 with ‘No Cry’, my latest release ‘Better Than Her’ which is doing really well proves that. I find myself wanting to experiment more… to bridge the gap between the African and the Western… to not stay boxed up. I wanna stay grounded in my roots in terms of identity as I reach for the sky, especially now that I am in talks with interested international distributors. The type of music I do today is afrocentric in nature but experimental in pattern. I hate being predictable!”.

Here is the video for Evaezi’s latest single “Better Than Her” featuring Essence & Kefee

      Okay, there should have been a NSFW warning in the post title.
      Her rapping skills are really good though, I like what I’ve heard from her.

    beautiful voice, beautiful girl, but she needs some repackaging. I really don’t think the blonde cut and the grey contacts or make up suits her.

U rily look gorgeous and I have always been a fan of ur music…there is an honesty about it. I see u like an ADELE…only sexier. Pls dnt pay attention to haters. ∂ǝγ nid to constanTly find temporary ways of filling the emptiness ∂ǝγ feel within themselves. ANYBODY who listens and watches u knows U R GOOD! I had goosebumps watching u perform the Nigerian National Anthem at the Late Christy Essien Ibokwe tribute last night. It brought tears to my eyes. U will run this industry soon enough.

    @tatafo this ISN’T the rapper. There were 2 Evas. The singer, which is this one came out in 2006 and the rapper surfaced last year or 2years ago. I prefer this Eva tho… She is original…not a nicki minaj wanna be

    What is all this talk about nudity??? I rushed here and I’m not seeing anything! Mscheeeeeew. Nigerians я hypocrites o!!! Does she look naked to u? To him that is pure, all things are pure. Eva congrats on the rebrand. I think u will do great! U have a sweet yet powerful voice and I L♥√ع ur energy on stage every single time. U ROCK!!!!

    unecessary nudity reali , ok songg @ bukky beyonce goes nude still unpleasant as any otha pesn if ha song is nice it is nice, no two ways bout it

  21. Ayo

    September 8, 2011 at 2:28 am

    @cookie THIS IS NOT NUDE!!!!! do you know what nude is???? i cant see tits or ass or anything… shay it is her skin that is making you say she is nude abi???? Jor o. @debo you said it wella jor… NIGERIANS ARE HYPOCRITES and might i add that they are haters. The average Nigerian doesnt like to see someone progress. They feel left behind, so they hate and try and tear down…. i am reading comments from a lot of ‘averages’. Average is something that Evaezi is not… so i can also understand why they find it hard to comprehend the lady and what she is doing. i personally like the pix. i think it is artistic and i think she looks really beautiful

    so you folks are hating on Evaezi because of her pictures?????? WOW!!! i am speechless. Una go die this way abi?? constantly destroying good things. What is nude about these pictures??? I am looking and i am trying to see what is making you people throw out meaningless and spiteful comments. i pray Evaezi just disregards all you enemies of progress. WO! Evaezi i am a fan of your music. i think you are a wonderful performer. Please… if you wanna strip to your barest minimums.. that is your business, your body, your life…. you owe no one any explanations or apologies my dear but judging from your soulful music over the years..you are not the type. I love the pix. mwaaaaaaaaah!

    I really don’t know much about her, but when I heard the news I thought it was my Eva, you know? the “Done did It ” rapper, when I clicked and saw Evaezi, I almost fell off my chair. Well, I sincerely do hope she meets up with the music standard in Naija.

    Naija, na wetin. What has she done? Your so called decent sisters in your homes go out in dresses half open with their cleavages jutting out like Zuma rock. She is an artist and her posture comes with the trade. Besides, I did not see anything or maybe you did see more… agbaya

  31. chidi

    September 9, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    @mike God bless u jor. So the buzz is on what Eva abi Evaezi is wearing…is that why we я here? U people should put away these childish hypocrisy I beg you. Meanwhile… I love your music Eva…. Chai! This name change will take some getting used to lol but I love ur fighting spirit. Keep it up.

      @purple I am soooo tired of all you people’s hypocrisy… you folks do faaaaaar worse. mscheeeeeeeeeeew. SHE IS NOT NUDE!!!!! what EXACTLY is being exposed???? Her skin… So??? i see girls wear skirts short enough to show their pubic hair and you all are hear bitching about body parts THAT I CAN NOT SEE!!! Please check your dictionary on the meaning of nudity. THIS IS NOT WHY WE ARE HERE PLEASE!!! She is a wonderful underrated singer PERIOD! Her sense of style should not concern you or any of us, afterall she is not known to be wayward… so MOVE ON! The unecessary beef u ladies have against eachother is the reason why una never fit hold a major position in Nigeria, whether in Politics or entertainment. SMH!

    i keep wondering what our girls are turning and if you cant do music without going naked……………[email protected], no one is beefing anyone. we all have rights to talk. i actually never saw Eva as someone who could compromise all in the name of been a star. whatever you do, there are people looking up to you. i only wish u lead right. case rested!!!!
