Timi Dakolo, the Nigerian multiple award-winning singer, has advised upcoming singers to be creative and original in their craft. Giving his two cents, the Great Nation singer compared fame to poison stating that it can destroy one’s career in a flash.

The sonorous singer made this statement during an interactive session at The Bridge Church in Abuja, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

“Singing in church is a seed but don’t limit yourself to just knowing how to sing how to make sounds, but you have to bring something different. Do not ignore the practical part of it by rehearsing even if it’s your profession, you must put in rehearsals because it will show during the performance.

“Never judge yourself, start today because you can’t judge yourself now with someone else’s past experiences,” he said.

The popular artiste said that it was essential for songs to leave significant experiences in the mind of listeners. He further advised musicians to avoid being victims of ignorance because pride has led to the downfall of many people in the entertainment industry.

He continued, “Pride will make you be in the same place and others will pass you. Fame is a poison that can destroy you in a flash if you don’t do the right things. To upcoming artistes, do you want to be here a long time or be here for the applause and be famously broke? No idea is a waste in songwriting, so when ideas come your way, you should be able to identify them.”

Dakolo gained prominence in the Nigerian music scene in 2007 when he won the maiden edition of Idols West Africa.
