First and foremost let me say if you are reading this and you know I am the one that wrote it, please lessen your expectation as regards me but value the information that you will get from this short article. To Start with, a Yoruba proverb says "nkan to n be leyin ofa o ju eje lo", meaning what is behind 6 is more than 7 which even mathematics has proven over time 6.0,6.1 till infinity. It goes that way, for musicianship and life.
On this blog, I have been focused on the business side of music for a while. I'll like to take a break from that and talk about the art just a little bit. I believe everyone (almost everyone) who decides to do full time music, must have some degree of talent. Either in singing, song-writing, rap or playing an instrument. All the same, before you do a recording, there must be something to record right?
It truly is a jungle out there filled with: snakes, rats, rabid carnivores, sharks...well, you get the picture. In the course of your musical journey, there will be confrontations, arguments, misunderstandings, and miscommunications. You'll get jerked around, ripped off and disrespected. So, you want to be a rockstar? Welcome to your nightmare.
