Why Every Upcoming Artiste Must Have A Side Hustle If They Want To Blow In The Music Industry

Music business is a really lucrative one as it can help you amass wealth for yourself even beyond your imagination.

Especially in a country like Nigeria where the music industry is the largest in Africa and yielding millions of naira. Nevertheless, success in this music industry is left to how much you plan and put certain things in place.

Taking on music as a profession is a risk which you must be fully ready for any consequences it brings as you blowing as an artiste might take longer than expected and sooner than you think.

Here are starter packs for individuals planning to take on music:

1. Easy/Short Stage Name

For any individual wanting to make music a profession, while starting out, ensure you have a not too long stage name which people can’t remember.

Having a short and easy stage name will help different music listeners to put you in mind and even to trace your music.

There are more than a thousand musician emerging all over the world every year, your name when short and easy will help people identify you amongst all of them.

2. Stick To A Particular Genre Of Music

Staying true to a particular kind of music helps your career as an artiste.

This will help in defining you as an artiste, though there are times one needs to be creative in art by trying out various genres but this doesn’t mean going totally out of your lane.

No matter how the likes of M.IVectorShow Dem Camp (SDC)PoeBoogeyBlaqbonez etc try to go commercial at some points, they still come back to RAP, their first love.

3. Catcy Hooks/Choruses

So as to get the attention of listeners, it is advisable that your tracks as nice and catchy hooks people can remember after a long while.

When your hooks are long, it makes the song boring and uneasy for your listeners to catch up with.

4. Nice Music Production

As an artiste, the music you put out in terms of quality is of much importance. This we can say in terms of sound, voicing, mixing/mastering and many more.

Artistes nowadays need to really pay attention to these deciding factors, it feels kind of grumpy when listening to a song not recorded or mixed well.

5. Release Projects

Another way you can increase your popularity is by releasing projects. It could be an EP (Extended Play) or an LP (Long Play).

This project in one way or the other will help people in getting to know more about you and how creative you are as they listen to different kinds of track from the same artiste.

6. Social Media

The media can’t be taken for granted at this age as it is one way where you get to sell your music faster.

As an artiste coming into the music business, ensure you have much relevance on social media platforms mainly (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).

This is one huge means in which you get to connect to a lot of persons that can end up being your fans.

7. You Should Have Your Own Personal Website

It’s of much importance as an artiste to have a website of your own. Your website will end up saying a lot about you.

It should contain your previous releases, profile, collaborations, news and hints on yet to be released tracks. It helps in making your fans aware of what to expect from you and also to reach you.

8. Make Use Of Premium Music Platforms

There are lots of platforms where artistes can get their music to these days and be heard, so therefore, it is necessary for artistes to get signed on to these platforms so as to share their music with a larger music base.

Some of these includes Audiomack, SoundCloud, Spotify, Genius, Boomplay etc. You can also get to sell your music on iTunes, Apple, Amazon, Tidal and many more.

9. Make Use Of Blogs

Blogs are very important to every music artiste whether new or Top artiste as they are a whole lot of things one can achieve as far as music promotion is concerned.

[MUST READ] Open Letter To DJ Cuppy – “Nigerians Don’t Hate You, You Only Need To Wake Up”

Published

on

By

Dear Beautiful Cuppy,

 

I’m not here to reference your success to the wealth of your father or how you leveraged on it to boost your brand to what it is today.

 

It will be so unfair if I didn’t applaud you from being hardworking enough to make yourself a household name in Africa, especially Nigerian.

 

DJ Cuppy, you’ve been on a mission that I don’t key into recently and nothing from you will make me buy your tales and descriptions of how you’re not loved by 80% of the Nigerian people or how you need to be freed by your critics and trolls who won’t stop coming after you.

 

As it stands in the industry, you’re one of the very few female DJs Nigerians look up to and you’re not just amazing at what you do, you’re also bold, confident and above all, selfless – these are qualities anyone would admire in any beautiful lady like you.

 

However, comments about Nigerians and those trolling you seem to be coming from your emotional place, a very deep one.

 

Remember, all Nigerians cannot like you – just the same way you cannot like everyone.

 

The question is why do you think those who don’t like you don’t?

 

I’ve taken my time to read through your comments on twitter and Instagram, Cuppy… you know what, you’re loved and appreciated by many, the few people who seem not to love you have two things in common;

 

They don’t like you because they feel you’re not talented ‘in singing’, and secondly, your father is too rich for them to believe, hence they beef what you have for they simply don’t have your father as theirs.

 

I’ve also had issues with your singing ability in the past, but you’ve proven yourself to be a work in progress and you’ve moved from that lady who struggles while singing to being commander-in-chief of music – at DJ level.

 

As a matter of fact, you’re better than most of your counterparts in the industry.

 

Most Nigerian DJs just make a hell of a noise in their own music than to drop a meaningful verse, but this isn’t you, Cuppy gives us reasonable lyrics and sings her heart out in her own songs.

 

Unlike many DJs who feature musicians to dominate their songs for them, your own type of feature is different, you collaborate with them and share the verses, and still deliver stunningly, despite being a DJ.

 

If anyone feels the need to label you talentless, I’m sure they are the ones who don’t understand what it means to be talented.

 

They need to check out your collaboration with Tekno on ‘Green Light’, your duet with Sarkodie on ‘Vybe’, just to mention a few, maybe they will have a change of mind, calm their heads and grab ‘Gelato’.

 

And for those trolling you for your father’s wealth, you have no reason to bother yourself about them. Many people will troll you for being a rich kid, and just for absolutely nothing. Is it your fault your father, Femi Otedola is wealthy? Or are you the reason your father is not their father?

 

You need to wake up, don’t be too clouded by your emotions because the few negative comments are getting at you (real hard), instead, focus on those who love you and keep doing you.
