She came from nothing. She is the future – ; that’s the long description of Xtatic, a female Kenyan rapper who has proved internationally that she’s the baddest female Emcee alive. In 2011 Gloria Edna Nyabange (her real name) was signed to Pan-African music and entertainment company, ROCKSTAR4000 after they noticed her prowess as a rapper. She then got into a deal with Sony Music Entertainment Africa and that’s when disaster started looming. Allegedly.
‘Hit ‘Em Up’ was one Xtatic’s first projects. She featured South African rapper Priddy Ugly and BET Award nominee AKA on the track.
In 2014 October, Xtatic announced her exit from ROCKSTAR4000 claiming that the management was not doing their work.
On a recent post on social media, the rappers said that she does not regret signing to such a huge record label even though they’ve made her life a ‘living hell’.
I keep on saying I do not regret signing a contract to a huge Music label, only thing is Neither you or I could have ever predicted the lagging of priorities and inability to do so much and instead make someone’s life a living hell.Xtatic_Kenya
On the long post, Xtatic also hinted that she might soon be losing her entire house to an auction.
“I want to repost this status as a memory some few years to come, but also remind anyone out there going through something, that problems will always be there and Rock bottom is really not the worst place you could be in. Although, delaying your progress in the process by remaining there and not listening but succumbing to misery, anger, depression and worry is the worst place to be in.
Well, this week could have turned my energy sour or back to negativity if I was who I was years back. I have lost a few things … well not so little if I put in perspective that I have or will be loosing my entire house to an auction and having let off my house keeper, who has been heaven sent and a second mother to my own child, puts me of course at a place of more work, on top of my work, which is nothing at all as I have handled a lot before when I was younger even without the growth I have now.
I may not have a lot of people around me but for sure I have three gems in my life, who have managed not only to ask me if I’m all right, or if they could be of any help, but NEVER allowing me to beat myself up by constantly ALWAYS asking me, “What’s the plan?”
Because they too go through HELLA LOT and know how much worry and getting worked up about things you can’t change, won’t take you as much as an inch away from any situation.
What about my music? Some may ask, I’m at a situation with music, where maybe one day if I sit you down you would understand. I keep on saying I do not regret signing a contract to a huge Music label, only thing is Neither you or I could have ever predicted the lagging of priorities and inability to do so much and instead make someone’s life a living hell. One thing they forgot is I am a human being and I had and I continue having responsibilities.
After my mum passed I had, even more, responsibilities. I don’t live in a world where I could fall back to my parents sometimes, heck my daughter asked me on Sunday if I have any, and it was startled and just stood there with no answer, It’s obvious she realizes it’s always just me and her and the daily people in my life, no family gathering and all. I rarely have relative adults I talk to, I don’t even have so many people I talk to anyway 😝.
Damn, we just went into some deepness there, to be honest, I’m not relying on all that darkness, so Throw out whatever mood it gave you and let’s come back to this reality of progress, of good energy, of positive vibes, and just genuine happiness.
Even heroes hit a zero and that doesn’t stop them from putting on the cape on and saving the world, because that is why your heart beats, PURPOSE!!”
