The entertainment world is vast. So, let’s just focus on Music.
Music is defined by Oxford Languages as a vocal or instrumental sound or both. Which when combined in such a way, produces beauty of form, harmony and expression of emotions.
I’m sure by now; we all have an idea of what I’m trying to discuss.
So, let’s go straight to the point.
SOMETHING YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT MUSIC.
Do you know that every music made is founded on a particular inspiration, muse or believe? Which is further pushed by either a logical reasoning, emotional stands or a religious believe.
Let’s use African for a case study.
To mention but a few categories of music;
Most high-life/ Afro/ Juju music released flows from a logical angle on their part. As it is either directed at an error done and neglected or a way forward from a disturbing situation. For Nigerians; Chief Osita Osadebe, Oliver de coque, Fela Kuti, Adamu wayya maraya etc. are known for their great works in this area.
Also, most hip-hop and blues are fueled by emotional stands as it is either centered on betrayal, love, heart-break etc.
While those conceived on religious believes are called gospel music or any religious believe its stands for as they all point to their creator and maker.
ONE FACT ABOUT MUSIC
One fact about music is that it pacifies 99.9% individuals on earth. With this individuals connecting to music through its different genres such as Classical, Hip Hop, Highlife, Jazz, Blues, Afro/Juju etc.
Aside from cases where the name of an artist sells more than the quality of the song, note this; close to an average population of the world knows what a good music is and that is what signs the real deal and that’s the truth.
To today and tomorrow musicians and artist, work more at making your sound good and more quality than pushing more for fame because, what speaks for you and your art even in your absence is not all fame but how true your sound is and lives. Quality sounds lives on even in death.
Music is life.
