Eva Bs childhood picture.Eva Bs parents separated during her early childhood, and she was often bullied for it at school. In an interview, while talking about her school days, she said, My parents are separated. We would have to hear taunts about that. I have been expelled from two schools, in Class 5 and Class 9, for fighting with girls who made mean comments about my family..Growing up in Karachis urban-slum area of Lyari, she was introduced to rap music via a folder on her second-hand computer, which consisted of songs by the popular American rapper Eminem. In an interview, she talked about her first encounter with Eminems songs and said, I was blown away and fascinated by what I had heard. I went on to ask my friends what this music is really about. I never thought that music could be like this.On the contrary to her supportive mother, her brother opposed her decision to become a rapper claiming that rapping wasnt a womanly profession.Determined to fulfil her dream, she started a YouTube channel, but every time she posted a video featuring her freestyle raps, her brothers friends would tease him for having a rapper sister. This resulted in endless quarrels at her home. As a consequence of her brothers disapproval, in 2015, she quit her profession for a while.Despite discontinuing her career as a rapper, the zeal to create music and write about societal restrictions on girls in her did not fade. One of her raps includes the lines, Socha rap chhod dun, kalam tod dun, par kalam mein tou meri khoon ki siyahi hai (I thought I would give up rap, snap my pen, but the pen has the ink of my blood)..She made a come back to the rap circuit through the Pakistani music streaming platform Patari in 2019. Patari had approached Eva B to write and perform a song for it.Lack of music and audio equipment led Eva B to record her first official song titled Gully Girls (2019) using her mobile phone. Featured on Patari and produced by the record producers Sunny Khan Durrani and Zari Faisal (CEO of Patari), the song was immensely appreciated by the audience.Instead of her real name, the rapper used the pseudonym Eva B to release her song. Using a pseudonym gave her a sense of security from her orthodox conservative brother who wanted her to quit rapping. Thereafter, she started lying to her family to go to rehearsals. In an interview, she said, I would have to lie to my brother if I had to go for recordings. I would say I was going to universityI lied back home about having to attend a friends wedding. I would ask everyone to schedule me before nightfall so I could make an excuse at home more easily..
