There’s a teenage rapper girl from Lyari named Eva B. Who came up with a song “Gully Girls”. Apparently, She is an amazing rapper and she lives in Lyari. She is not allowed to rap by her family so she operates underground using a pseudonym: Eva_B.
The song is Eva B’s own version of Apna Time Aayega, the hit anthem track from Bollywood it-boy Ranveer Singh’s recent movie Gully Boy. Gully Girls features lyrics on women empowerment. It begins with, “Jab zindagi apni hai, toh marzi doosron ki kyun hai?”
Journalist Fifi Haroon recently shared the video on Twitter of Eva’s song being played for the audiences at Aurat March. “Our little Secret Superstar! Eva B: a feisty teenager from Lyari, Karachi,”
Our little Secret Superstar! is Eva B – a feisty teenager from #Lyari #Karachi. Her brother won’t let her come out and sing so she uses another name. Her song was released by @patarimusic today. I have interviewed her exclusively for @BBCUrdu #gullygirl you rock! https://t.co/dTUvFhL3Ku
