Eva Alordiah, a well-known singer, discusses her decision to take a vacation from her singing career, as well as her silent struggle with depression after falling bankrupt.
In a recent post on the microblogging platform X, the rapper explained why she decided to stop making songs.
Eva claimed that she struggled to keep up and eventually succumbed to sadness, and that her bank balance was not helping.
She revealed, however, that it took self-determination for her to pull herself together by investing her time in literature and other recreational and business activities.
Eva Alordiah explained that the experience was worthwhile as she reflected on how far she had progressed from being down to now owning various businesses.
’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!”
