7 Blunders Every Artists Must Not Make In 2017!

2016 had more than its fair share of artistes fighting with their record labels, being arrested and detained by the police and getting dragged to court by show organizers, promoters and investors. We advise every artiste to avoid making the following mistakes in 2017 so their careers can move forward without unnecessary drama:
1. Being too desperate to sign a contract (I-Must-Blow-Syndrome). 😟
It funny how the same artistes who eagerly jumped at a recording/Management deal without properly understanding the terms turn around to complain that they have been enslaved by their management or record label. Pls take your time to go through the terms of the contract with your lawyer and think it through before signing.. Ranting on social media will not epp you in 2017.
2. Begging people upandan to sponsor your career without having anything to bring to the table. 😏
You dont have a certified hit..Your fan base is next to zero and your rap/vocal skill level is below average..Haba, Music is not a ponzi scheme, na.. Pls repent in 2017
3. Refusing to learn how the music business works (Especially Christian Artistes) 🙅
Just living in a bubble and assuming you will blow when it is your time without learning about the music business will not epp you in 2017. Berra humble yourself and learn as much as you can about the music business. Even the bible tells us to go learn from the ant and study her ways.
4. Signing a cut and paste record contract your label/management found on the internet. 😒
So in order to avoid paying lawyer fees, you decide to sign a contract you downloaded online without asking yourself if it fits your particular arrangement. You just copied and pasted and signed! Clap for yourself! Issorai.. Kontinu.. When it all goes south for you in 2017, you go know say na only u waka come.
5. Not bothering to research the background of a label or investor. 😦
So you have been offered a mouth-watering deal with a house in lekki and Range Rover Sport and you are ready to sign your life over without even finding out what you can about your so-called "helper of destiny" and whether they are capable of delivering on what they are promising.. Hmmm, may ur career not be on life-support in 2017.
6.Getting free Car and free apartment in Lekki from your investor/Label without expecting them to collect it back with interest 🎅
My dear, by now you should know that a record label is not "Father Christmas" so whatever money or 'gift' is being offered to you as an advance will be recouped with interest from the income you generate as an artiste.
So ask yourself 'Do you really need to start doing 'Big Boy/Big Babe' on credit while your label is making the real profit from your sweat?
7. Refusing To Hire an Entertainment lawyer.😏
*Sigh* I could say this a hundred times but some of you think the cost of hiring a good entertainment lawyer is much more expensive than not having one. Well, i hope 2016 has taught you better.. If not, be comforted that you are going into 2017 with no legal protection whatsoever. You are like a man going into sambisa forest in his birthday suit. I hope your 'Rambo Skills' are adequate to see you through. Have a great year!
