Please, where are my fans?!
As some of you know, I have officially released some of the songs you guys love so much. This means you can access them on your preferred music streaming platforms. Yay!
It’s 2 years late but still, yay!
Truth is I didn’t think of distributing them at the time because I was doing it as a hobby. However, I soon realized that if you really want to be heard, you have to understand the music business. You must have fans or you as good as invincible.
I also discovered that my type of music is almost non-existent. I say almost because I don’t know anyone else who is doing what I’m doing and that’s because I mess with genres to create something new. However, the problem is people aren’t so conversant with the new (see why I have to be heard?) and to be honest, I’m not even sure what to call the genres I’ve created.
Even though “Rap” may serve as an umbrella for one of the genres I’ve created, it doesn’t particularly fit into what is popularly termed as Hip-Hop or rap. Reason is because the style is completely different from all that I hear.
The other genre is a bit calmer than “Pop” and yet doesn’t seem to fall into R&B even though they posses certain elements of the mentioned genre. Arrrgh, being unique is so much work but atleast one gets to stand out. *wink*.
Despite this, I noticed that these songs resonate with listeners. People are looking for music that speaks to them– songs that cover issues that are rarely spoken about. You may wonder how I know this. Well, there were tons of downloads on a daily basis from different parts of the world when it was available for free.
This suggests that I have an audience. I have fans but… I didn’t have a platform at the time to let these people connect with me. Honestly, I didn’t know a lot then and trust me when I say, I’m paying greatlyfor my ignorance. Sighs.
One of the reasons I started rapping was because I wasn’t getting any positive messages particularly from rappers in the female category. A bulk of their messages are about their bodies or their feminity. I wanted something different, refreshing, meaningful and positive.
My aim is to creatively inform and entertain so that when you listen to me, you’re learning something. If that’s not the case, it’ll resonate with you.
Now that you know all these, here is my request. If you’ve enjoyed any of my songs, I need you to use that same energy y’all used to download for free to hype me by following me on Instagram and Facebook. Yes, I’ve learned from my lesson. Lol.
So please where are my fans?! Y’all need to come out from your hiding place and do the needful. Share with friends and enemies. Thank you guys! Much love!
