  • WHAT DID THEY SAY YOU CAN NOT DO ? By Journalist Emeka Ogwu

  •  In 2006, Davido had to beg Wande coal and D’Prince for a selfie but today Davido has gone international. In 2015, Cynthia Morgan told Davido that his voice is similar to a frog voice and has no future in the music industry. But today this same Cynthia Morgan is begging Davido for a musical collaboration.

     Moreover, MTN came to Nigeria at a time when nobody wanted to invest in Nigeria, at a time when Nigerians did not have phones. Even Zenith Bank refused to loan MTN cash to operate, UBA rejected MTN’s offer but today see the difference. What about Cowbell? When they came to Nigeria, they made milk in a sachet, Peak was laughing at them – they said Cowbell was milk for the poor but they were right! 3-million poor people could afford N10 a day for a sachet of milk. 

    Join me and let’s calculate – 3 million people buying milk at N10.00- that was N30 million every single day. In a month they grossed N900 million (almost N1billion). Even Peak had to make sachet milk in order to survive in the market. However, what have people told you? What have they said you cannot do, or you do not qualify for, or you do not have experience for? They told Davido, they told MTN, they also told Cowbell. But today the story has changed beyond their expectations.

     Nevertheless,do not allow people’s negative remark about you to weigh you down or discourage you from achieving your goals in your chosen career. Are you an upcoming artist? Obviously as an up and coming artist,you feel depressed when those around you start asking mockingly “You’ve been singing for a while,why have you not blown”?

     Dear friends,please don’t feel discouraged, you have to understand that rain doesn’t just fall from the sky, the clouds have to be saturated with moisture and when that happens,you see the thick,dark rain-cloud gathering in the sky. At that point,nobody needs to do anything extra to make the rain fall,it will surely come pouring down. furthermore, keep recording,keep promoting your songs on the right platforms,keep attending and performing your songs at events, and above all, keep your faith alive in God as you remain optimistic.

    Always bear in mind that for every legacy, there is a beginning.
