4 Reasons Why You Are Still Struggling To Succeed In The Music Industry

Every year, thousands of artists like you are still struggling to turn their music craft into a cash cow despite being surrounded by huge opportunities.

To save yourself from the rat race of non-profitable artists, you need to pay close attention to this article.

All right, let’s get into the 4 reasons why you are still struggling to break through this industreet.

1. Freebies

Hunting for freebies frequently won’t make you grow or succeed until you stop that mentality.

As an artist, you have to take it upon yourself to start paying for products or services that will transform your music career positively.

Also, you have to stop the habit of telling experts to give their products or services to you for free. That’s wrong na.

“Please, just hear me out” or “I will never forget you when I blow” can never and will never put a day’s food on a producer’s or anyone’s table.

If you want to succeed in this industreet, you have to cultivate the good habit of paying for others’ services or products.

Mind you, doing so comes with its magic as you will probably get those transforming results.

 

2. Laziness 

This is another virus that’s stopping you from experiencing the sunlight of success.

Speaking of this, @Sir_Michaelo, an entrepreneur amazingly tweeted this:

“Literally, every problem you have is an ignorance problem. Someone has published the answer to your problem in a book, on a blog, in a YouTube video, in a master class, or somewhere. But you don’t like to learn, you’d rather be entertained.”

Getting ahead in this industry requires you to continuously update and upgrade your knowledge of the music business.

And you can achieve this through different, music-related means: reading books, listening to podcasts, watching YouTube videos, attending master classes, and paying for physical or online courses.

See, if you want to succeed in this crowded industreet, you have to shake off laziness and be up and doing.

3. Procrastination/Excuses 

See, procrastination is ‘bae’ until it hijacks the treasure you should have acquired.

I am always of the opinion that procrastination is the twin brother of indiscipline.

If you don’t discipline yourself to do the necessary things you are supposed to do on time, your music career is bound to suffer the consequences.

If your ultimate goal is to succeed in this music industry, you have to gun down procrastination.

Though this is not easy to do, you just have to do it if you want to move from where you are to where you ought to be.

Also, I urge you to write down that song ideas in your head immediately they spring up instead of postponing it till another day, as the ideas may evaporate and never return.

“I don’t have money” shouldn’t be your sweet excuse for letting opportunities pass you by.

Go and learn a digital skill to get the money instead of comforting yourself with that killing virus.

4. Trial And Error 

Employing trial and error instead of learning from the mistakes of other successful artists before you will only keep you in the boat of struggles.

Trying to figure things out yourself is not a problem, but it’s a waste of time, energy and resources when you can easily learn from those who have achieved what you want.

Finally, I want you to know that you are the architect of your music career.

Mr. Jollof: Once A Blind Man, Now A Hungry Man?

Published

on

Involvement of some celebrities in politics can easily be adjudged to be patriotism or passionate show of concern for troubles the masses are facing with bad leadership.

Some are genuine in their words and actions while some are two-faced nonentities always doing everything to make themselves politically relevant just to eat in the political cake when it’s time. Mr. Jollof could be one big part of the latter.

During the COVID-19 era Mr. Jollof was one of the most vocal celebrities talking about how Nigerian politicians were handling the menace caused by the virus.

It was really a critical time for Nigerians. Many private companies stood up to save the nation with huge donations only for government officials to hoard some Covid-19 relief materials.

This was the same period Bullion Van loaded with cash entered Bourdillon which ofcourse caused controversies. Mr. Jollof weighed in on the controversy and shred apart the man in bourdillon in a well-planned social media video

Watch Below:-

The same politician you blasted years ago is now all of a sudden your anointed presidential candidate. The APC leader might not be aware of the viral video Mr. Jollof did to attack him that year but it’s certain his son Seyi Tinubu who introduced Jollof to his father as a fan knew.

Why does he have to deceive his father about Mr. Jollof?

Apparently, they might be trying to work on getting the active backings of as much celebrities as possible against campaign period, so the seemingly hungry ones would be easy to catch first.

Internet Never Forgets

Just because internet never forgets, Mr. Jollof was challenged by fans with the old video of him blasting Tinubu, his response was “I was blind that time”.

Obviously, the blind man of 2years ago is now hungry and needs to eat the political cake that is about to be served.

This is to call on Nigerians to vote their conscience and beware of chameleon celebrities who might be trying to influence their voting decision in the next general elections.

Mr. Jollof is just one out of many that will still show face beware!!

The Three Major Requirements Of A Good Relationship

Published

on

Many people, after they’ve been in a couple for some time, will privately admit that they are – in many ways – frustrated and disappointed by the person they’ve chosen to share their lives with.

If pressed for details, they will have no difficulty coming up with a list: their partner, they might complain: Is too loyal to their irritating, family doesn’t share their views on the layout of the living room, Never wants to go on camping holidays, Plays tennis every Wednesday evening no matter what, Doesn’t like Moroccan food, Doesn’t share their enthusiasm for 19th century Russian novels, Has a habit of adding ‘actually’ to every second sentence, when it’s actually redundant.

As the list gets longer, they sigh; they still love their partner and long to be happy together, it’s just that it seems impossibly complicated to make this relationship work. What’s driving the frustration isn’t that they’ve sadly fallen for an idiot as a mate; it’s rather that we have all inherited needlessly complicated ideas of what a relationship is supposed to be for.

We are told that love is meant to involve the almost total merger of two lives: we expect that a loving couple must live in the same house, eat the same meals together every night, share the same bed, go to sleep and get up at the same time; only ever have sex with (or even sexual thoughts about) each other, regularly see each others’ families, have all their friends in common – and pretty much think the same thoughts on every topic at every moment.

It’s a beautiful vision, but a hellish one too, for it places an impossibly punitive burden of expectation on another human. We feel the partner must be right for us in every way, and if they’re not, has to be prodded and cajoled into reform. But there’s another perspective: relationships don’t have to be so complicated and ambitious if we keep in view what in the end actually makes them fulfilling.

If we boil matters down, there might really just be three essential things we want from one another:

Kindness: a partner who is gentle with our imperfections and can good-humouredly tolerate us as we are.

Shared vulnerability: someone with whom we can be open about our anxieties, worries and the problems that throw us off balance: someone we don’t have to put on a good front for; someone around whom we can be weak, vulnerable and honest – and who will be the same around us.

Understanding: someone who is interested in, and can make sense of, certain obscure features of our minds: our obsessions, preoccupations and ways of seeing the world. And whom we are excited to understand in turn.

If we have these three critical ingredients to hand, we will feel loved and essentially satisfied whatever differences then crop up in a hundred other areas. Perhaps our partner’s friends or routines won’t be a delight, but we will be content.

Just as if we lack these emotional goods, and yet agree on every detail of European literature, interior design and social existence, we are still likely to feel lonely and bereft. By limiting what we expect a relationship to be about, we can overcome the tyranny and bad temper that bedevils so many lovers.

A good, simpler – yet very fulfilling – relationship could end up in a minimal state: we might not socialise much together. We might hardly ever encounter each other’s families. Our finances might overlap only at a few points.

We could be living in different places and only meet up twice a week. Conceivably we might not even ask too many questions about each other’s sex life. But when we would be together it would be profoundly gratifying, because we would be in the presence of someone who knew how to be kind, vulnerable and understanding.

A bond between two people can be deep and important precisely because it is not played out across all practical details of existence.

By simplifying – and clarifying – what a relationship is for we release ourselves from overly complicated conflicts – and can focus on our urgent underlying needs to be sympathised with, seen and understood.
