In a detailed post made via social media on Tuesday, the artist recounted how the unidentified politician reached out to her after viewing her music video for the song ‘War Coming.’
Although Eva did not disclose the politician’s name, she disclosed that the individual was keen on utilizing her song in a political campaign.
She recounted the phone conversation where the politician praised her music and expressed a desire to leverage her song to send a message about readiness for a potential conflict.
Eva explained that the conversation took an unexpected turn when the politician suggested she should visit Abuja to discuss using the song in a campaign.
Eva further reflected on the nature of her song, ‘War Coming,’ clarifying that it was not intended for the type of war the politician had in mind.
The artist expressed her hope that her song’s message did not predict a real war, both in the present and the future, emphasizing her reluctance to be associated with negative prophecies.
She mentioned that the song was composed eight years ago and pointed out the ongoing challenges in Nigeria, where the voices of the less privileged are frequently marginalized, suppressed, and oppressed.
