I have been thinking lately that music is the hardest entertainment job to venture in seeing a lot of actors , actresses , socialites and people in other works of life releasing below average songs .
While some might be doing it for the love of fortune and fame , some are just playing with it as a hobby (which they should keep under their roof).Just imagine when Jim iyke came from being a popular nollywood actor to exposing his medicority as a musician , he is not alone in this,Asamoah gyan(Ghanaian footballer) , Uti nwachukwu ,omotola, kenneth okolie(heard he is singing now), even comedians like omobaba , jedi, Koffi and so on .
Recently, we saw Tatiana durao of Big brother Africa trying her vocal skills in crazy ,though i love the song because of its europop feel but the truth of the matter is that people dont seem to take anyone venturing into music from another profession seriously .
It's not the same when a popular musician wants to act in a movie or act as a video director or any other thing .just imagine a movie trailer starring whether D banj ,Tuface ,P square, terry g or any other popular artiste alongside nollywood actors, a lot of people will be excited to see the movie even if their acting is not up to standard just as people were excited to see M.I's movie last year.
Considering all these , It is highly advisable to start with music if one will like to diversify later and it's glaring that music is not for everybody because it involves many steps if one really wants to succeed as a musician .This makes us to ask if music is the hardest
entertainment job to Venture in?
