Sometimes I feel like I should not blog. Sometimes, I feel like I should. Most of the times I want to blog, I have nothing REALLY interesting to blog about. Some of the times, nothing particularly fascinating, but the thing is that I will always blog when time permits me.
I went to a studio somewhere at Adeniyi Jones today with my cousin, a drummer-on-a-dream-run. My musician friend, J.O.E (Joseph Iseli), who I also work for as publicist was recording and I needed to see how it would go. The tune has been done and it was time to voice and he went in and did it, while the producer kept track of what he was doing on the computer. For me, it was an amazing experience. I have actually recorded a song myself long time ago, which I deleted from my laptop because it was crappy to my ears. I said to myself, 'You will never be a musician. Stick to writing.'
The thing about me is that I try all art mediums and each one that I fail totally in and I think I can't handle the failure, I walk away. Writing I know I can stand, because it seems to me the perfect way of not showing my laziness. Filmmaking I dabbled into, because it is one form of art that requires all your energy and it's amazingly engaging. Then songwriting, I've done, but it still feels like I'm doing poetry and can only write songs people like Asa can sing...
While I was on my way back home, I saw beautiful Adaora Mbelu, driving home. I was hanging on the okada, with my helmet in my head, thinking of when man go buy im own car, dey drive around town. Time will tell, sha.
