Eva Alordiah and her snails
Rapper Eva Alordiah has a love for snails, so much that she takes them on stage whenever she has a performance.
Her snails came to the forefront during her eccentric performance at the 2015 Felabration, and in a recent interview, revealed how it all began.
“Err…I love eating snails,” she said. “I also perform with them on stage because they’re like a back-up for my band; that’s how it started, but as I began to do it, I learnt something from their philosophy of life, and it’s that we should take things with ease as we are blessed and inspired to, and not to be in so much hurry every time.”
“Being slow is not all that bad, we need to relax sometimes. I have been using this philosophy all my life, and it’s paying off. If something doesn’t happen fast, you should chill because it will definitely happen later.”
She also spoke her on her much-delayed 1960 album, saying: “I think it’s because I’ve been independent all my life. I went out on my own from the age of 16; asides that, I’m a very stubborn human being, in a good way though.
“1960 is synonymous to Nigeria’s independence, and my mom was born in 1960 as well, so it’s sort of a mini-dedication to her. I only hope my song touches people because if not, then it’s not music to me.”
