LuluRaps latest EP is inspired by true events. The EP title, “An Eye for a Naira”, is a play on the biblical reference of “an eye for an eye”.
If you’re wondering about the deeper meaning behind the title, it refers to abandoning your vision or dreams and settling for anything else, just to make a buck.
Undoubtedly something we see every day, LuluRaps addresses the way people put aside their dignity in order to keep up appearances.
Oh and naira here isn’t only about money. It represents anything superficial that people are willing to put in place of the real – essentially short-changing themselves.
Other themes covered in the EP include poverty, vision and domestic violence but don’t let us give it all away.
