1. THROAT CLEARING OR HARSH COUGHING
Clearing your throat whenever we have phlegm or mucus is a very natural thing to do. However, whenever you clear your throat, what you're doing is 'rubbing' your vocal cords harshly with each other, and this could cause unnecessary injury to your voice!
Coughing harshly and loudly also brings great tension and strain to your voice, because the loud sound is created by your vocal cords squeezing tightly with each other, and this also can cause unnecessary damage to your singing voice.
As an artiste, No matter your chosen genre, your voice is your raw material. You don't have to be an R&B artiste or an opera singer before you learn to take care of your voice. Music is Nigeria is changing for the better and audience demand for excellence is high during live performances.
