Fame is a poison that can destroy you in a flash – Timi Dakolo cautions upcoming musicians



Nigerian singer, songwriter, and music producer Timi Dakolo,  has called on upcoming artists to be more original and creative when it comes to music production.

Dakol stated this during an interactive session at The Bridge Church in Abuja.

According to him, musicians should not restrict themselves to knowing how to sing and sound production but should be unique.

“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,” he said.

The popular artiste said that it was essential for songs to leave significant experiences in the mind of their listeners.

He further advised musicians to avoid being victims of ignorance because pride had led to the downfall of many in the 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 artists, 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,” he advised.
