Seeing how the YBNL new signee, Fireboy has seized all the attentions from all other acts under YBNL including, Lyta, makes it clear that there are a number of lesson that all artistes can learn from Fireboy.
At this time, he has the No. 1 song according to iTunes playlist in the whole Nigeria, isn’t that too big for an artiste still in is debut year? Well, No! Nothing is too big for some that has plan and has foresight as Fireboy.
If you are an artiste and you are ambitious about making it big in the musical business, then I have a very simple advice for you, an advice I acquired from my erudite auspices of Fireboy DML rise.
ADVICE: – I’m going to tell you something you probably don’t want to hear: “stop looking for a record label.”
Well, you might be thinking, what’s this one saying, perhaps what did I know? Well, Take my advice! But don’t stop being creative.
Don’t sleep on Improving yourself in all musical ramifications, in your writing, your vocals, your production, everything.
Instead of looking (or hoping) for a record label, take your time to invest yourself, get educated musically, spend time building your business, but stop looking for a record label.
You probably think that’s a terrible advice. It’s not. If you stop wasting your time in search of a record label and focus on improving your business, yourself, your craft and creativity, you’ll notice something very interesting, record label will start looking for you.
A wise man once say “to blow up your career you need a record label, but to get a record label, you need to build your business. “ well I am the wise man in this context.
Record labels are going to do their best work when they have something to work with, so get out there and start building it yourself to entice the label.
I remember vividly well, how I have been a harden fan of Fireboy even before the record deal he had with YBNL, this young lad inspires me a lot, the enthusiasm, fervor of doing the music business is there. You won’t be able to relate if you haven’t taken a sneak peek on this artiste Souncloud page.
Fireboy took the business serious, he has a goal for himself, he plans to achieve everything without putting a record label or any investor in the picture, he just keeps handling himself with utmost believe and goal driven.
The reality is ;
If Fireboy can do it, then why can’t you?
I hope this inspires you as an artiste to do more… Never Stop Believing!
