Five months into a well publicized union between female rapper, Eva Alordiah and Lanre ‘eLDee’ Dabiri-owned Trybe Records, a source close to the label has revealed why the two parted ways.
Showbiz Trends learnt that the contract was terminated over the basis of constant disagreement between the artiste and the label head, as well as Eva’s excessive demands.
This was almost in tandem with a short message signed by eLDee last week announcing the end of the deal: “Trybe Records and Eva Alordiah have agreed to terminate her recording contract effective immediately. Trybe Records’ vision is to discover and nurture the talents of our artists while operating with purpose, valuing relationships with our partners within the industry, and being persistent in creating and releasing quality music.
“Unfortunately, over the past five months Eva’s vision has not aligned with ours and thus, both parties have agreed to separate. We wish Eva the best in her future endeavours and we plan on continuing towards our goal of creating quality music for Nigeria and beyond,” the message added.
It was learnt that while the deal was on, the label tried to push the singer and even facilitated her trip to London during the Olympics for a few gigs. The label ensured that her single I Don Did It got on BET rotation.
When she was signed to the label in May, Eva had hit Twitter to confirm the deal and even revealed that she had been on a long journey through many labels before Trybe’s deal. “Wow! I had to go through 13 Record deals to finally get here…Did I say yes to the 14th? Yes! Am I happy? Oh Yes!!!” Eva tweeted through Twitter account @Evaalordiah.
Meanwhile, Eva has not issued any press statement on the latest development.
