Today’s Akokite Of The Week is Faith Akwaugo Anyaoha aka Deeva. She’s 18, from Imo State, a rapper, writer and online contributor, repping the faculty of law, first year… Wow! what a portfolio.
Deeva sees herself as unique because she’s into a different kind of rap that men mostly dare to venture into and not women. She’s also very independent and do not in any way feel limited by gender or any other factor that exists.
She just started rap professionally this year dropping 68(Overkilling cover) in March, which climbed to number one of the Freshmen chart immediately it dropped and she’s currently nominated in the Female Artiste of the Year category for the Freshmen Concert of The Year. She’s also a finalist of the current Nokia Don’t Break The Beat competition, about to win the competition ;).
She tells us that her Life Philosophy is “Pain and Tears will come but when they do, give them a punch to remember.”, which is quite inspiring, while her favourite quotation is “To you a woman but the spirit of a king is what I wield”, less inspiring but beautiful, nonetheless.
Deeva’s Best Unilag Moment was when The Unilag Cypher came out and as she walked into the cab park ,someone went “Deeva!” and everyone turned like “Deeva!” and she was like, “y’all know me?” :).
Another day she won’t forget in Unilag would probably be the day Don Jazzy tweeted her music and people were like “Deeva, baddest geh” lol
Moving on to the faculty of Law, her favourite law lecturer is Mr Kola Oyewo. Her Favourite Law Course is Commercial Law and Her favourite place in Unilag is the Law lounge (obviously).
According to Deeva, her relationship status is “super private” and we can only wonder what she’s hiding. We’ll try to get more details and update you though. She hates when people try to hurt her and only appear when they need her… She loves anyone who treats her right and respects her. (Guys, take note)
Deeva’s music is inspired by God, her life, what she’s been through and the pain she’s felt at different times in her life. Her favourite Nigerian rapper is M.I (yaayy!) Her role model is “a female rapper based in America called Rapsody. She’s different, one of the few women who share my kind of music and spits pure truth :)”
Her future plans for her music are to be the best female rapper to come out of Africa, be different and bring the kind of music that inspires the world.
Her twitter handle is @DeevaOfficial. Follow her 🙂
