Here are a couple of tips for those who intend building a career as artistes in the music industry.
*Some artistes coming into the industry think getting signed to a record label is the ultimate to becoming popular and making money. This is a very wrong way of thinking because some record labels will in fact derail you and make a mess out of your career. Take Olamide and Skales for example, Olamide became a success as an independent artiste while Skales was stuck when he was with his former label.
Every artiste should have a solid manager, strive to build a strong fan base, have a good working relationship with OAPs and Djs. Make good music, earn money and be able to bring their own terms to negotiations when any record labels comes calling.
