Famous musician, Timi Dakolo has sent a strong warning to musicians.
He said; “Singing in church is a seed but don’t limit yourself to just knowing how to sing how to make sounds, but you have to bring something different.”
“Do not ignore the practical part of it by rehearsing even if it’s your profession, you must put in rehearsals because it will show during the performance.”
“Never judge yourself, start today because you can’t judge yourself now with someone else’s past experiences.”
“It is essential for songs to leave significant experiences in the mind of listeners. Musicians should avoid being victims of ignorance because pride has led to the downfall of many people in the entertainment industry.”
“Pride will make you be in the same place and others will pass you. Fame is a poison that can destroy you in a flash if you don’t do the right things.”
“To upcoming artistes, do you want to be here a long time or be here for the applause and be famously broke? No idea is a waste in songwriting, so when ideas come your way, you should be able to identify them.”
