Nigerian Singer, Timi Dakolo has counselled aspiring singers to be inventive and unique in their approach to their trade.
The “Great Nation” singer compared fame to poison, claiming that it may kill one’s career in an instant.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the sonorous vocalist made this revelation during an interactive session at The Bridge Church in Abuja.
“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”

The well-known musician stated that it was critical for songs to create meaningful memories in the minds of listeners.
He also warned musicians to avoid being victims of ignorance, stating that pride has led to the demise of many in the entertainment sector.
“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.”
