Who Knows Where Mavin Records Princess Di’Ja Is???
“This is a public service announcement, a certain lady by name Hadiza Blell who is popularly known as Aphrodija or simply Di’ja has been declared missing. She is thin with a fair complexion and usually adorns Afrocentric hairstyles. She is both of Nigerian and Sierra Leonean roots. The missing lady is a recording artiste signed to Mavin Records in 2014. She is best known for her feature on hit songs like ‘Dorobucci’, ‘Adaobi’ and her personal love themed hit song ‘Awww’. More details about her indicate that she is married and also blessed with a son. She has worked with popular Nigerian music acts like Don Jazzy, Reekado Banks, Patoranking etc.
“The earliest notice of her disappearance was in 2016, also, it was observed there were speculations of her sudden resurgence in the first quarter of 2017. However, the current report confirms that nothing worthwhile has been heard from her since the present year began. Her fans and well-wishers are aggrieved that the slender singer may have wandered unknowingly into oblivion. They have currently embarked on a search for the very promising singer. A private investigator has been hired to help rescue Di’ja and ascertain the reason for her sudden disappearance.
“A handsome reward awaits any person who has useful information that could lead to her comeback and return to the fold. If anyone by chance comes across a lady who fits the above description, a report should be sent across to the appropriate quarters for immediate action.
Signed: Aggrieved fans”.
But seriously, where is the once promising Mavin Records princess Di’ja??? To be honest very little has been heard from her in recent times. As mentioned above the reason for her supposed hiatus was due to her secret wedding. The break was necessary considering that she is no longer a single lady and secondly the birth of her son. But it is about time the once promising singer traced her way back to musical relevance.
Being out due to maternal/marital issues doesn’t really hold water anymore as her return is long overdue. Also considering she only managed to scratch her name on the beaches of the music industry, those faint prints on the sands could be easily washed up without any traces left.
Dorobucci was massive at the time, Adaobi was good; her personal work ‘Awww’ caught our attention yet that isn’t enough work to make an artist’s memory last longer. Di’ja is the only one out of the Mavin 2.0 trio lacking a debut album.
She isn’t the first female artiste to embark on maternity leave to nurse her child. Some ladies like Beyonce, Adele have done that. Beyonce and Adele may seem so far-fetched; let’s say, Tiwa Savage. The sweet thing is the latter is her label mate so there is enough room to draw some inspiration from her.
Fans of Di’ja would not be asking too much from her to serenade them once again with something worthwhile, some really nice piece of music. The Afrocentric singer held quite a lot of promise; even so, she was tipped to rivals the likes of Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade or Omawumi. That may not be the case now.
There is much power and immense talent within her to stage a comeback and hold it down for some time. The fans hope to see her find her way back to the realm of relevance and most definitely come through with a solid debut album.
