Can I use-"since the last eight years"?

Kavya said: (Jan 11, 2016)  
No, to use "since" the time mentioned should be very particular.

Smit said: (Aug 1, 2017)  
@Kavya.

The time mentioned is particular "8years".
I think we can use since the last eight years.
If I am wrong please clarify,

But 8 years is the duration not a specific time. Since January, Monday, 2016 etc can be used.
