Most times, Big things come in small packages. It is not how long we lived that matters but what we achieved within the limited period of time we lived. After the search for the celebrity of the week, Mtvibes media crew met a young talented upcoming artist in the field of music. Here is the short interview:
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Sir, may we know your name.
ARTIST: My name is Israel Chikezie Voice as i am popularly called.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW:Nice to meet you. Please may we know where you are from.
ARTIST: I am from Umuahia in Abia state.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW:What type of music do you do?
ARTIST: I am a gospel artist.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Ok. Have got an album?
ARTIST: No really, but i am working towards that. I only have done some single tracks.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Thats really nice. May we know your hobbies.
ARTIST: Smiles. Well I love making friends, travelling, reading and playing musical instruments.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Playing musical instrument? are there musical artists who don’t like playing musical instruments?
ARTIST: Yes na. Many don’t play. Not that they don’t like playing but they can’t play. LAUGHS LOUD.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Yes, it is very possible. Don’t mind me. Just pulling your legs. In one sentence, describe Israel Chikezie.
ARTIST: Israel is a prolific gospel musician. He is of a kind-heart and embraces challenges as they come. He is all things to all men.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Wow! All things to all men. When has been your high point and low point.
ARTIST: Oh my high point? When i am on stage doing my thing. Low point hmmmm..when i am not doing my thing.. i mean singing.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Among your singles, do you have a hit track?
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Can you share with us?
ARTIST: Why not? I enjoy IFUNANYA. It is a song on the beauty of finding a good wife. It is loved by my fans than other ones i have done. I love it too.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: Can you drop it on our website for our listeners to enjoy?
ARTIST: Why not? Its my pleasure.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: That is quite sweet of you. Listeners please, leave comment after listening. Thank you! So what challenges have you met on the way before?
ARTIST: You know as an artist, finance is always the first problem. And then acceptance, especially being accepted by your people.
MTVIBES MEDIA CREW: And now, are you beginning to record any breakthrough.
ARTIST: Yes. at least, your company have discovered me. This is my major breakthrough now.
So you want to be in the entertainment industry? You’ve wanted to ever since college. Or ever since high school. Or ever since you can remember. You may have a specific goal, a position or style you are dying to attain or showcase, or maybe it’s just the industry as a whole that attracts you. Still, the fire burns within and you are all set out to take the leap. And yet, you haven’t tried to break in. Why not? but you can. It is simple! That is if you will take a look.
A lot of people give up on their entertainment dreams before they even get close to making them a reality, sometimes before they even get a little forward in that direction. The big reason I’ve come across people who say they just couldn’t stand to live in Lagos or can’t move to Enugu for whatever reason (family, finances, etc.). When starting your entertainment career…
STEP ONE: Banish Excuses
There are millions of people working in entertainment all over the Nigeria, the majority of them outside Lagos are Millions. So if not being in Lagos is your big excuse, sorry, Buddy. That’s just not going to work here. Neither is too old, too young, too uneducated, too poor, too short, too large or any one of 1,000 other excuses. For every excuse you can come up with, I can give you multiple examples of people who against all odds got in and made entertainment careers for themselves. I hope you get what i am saying?
STEP TWO: Don’t Think “Us” Versus “Them”
You ever see the high school pictures of people who are now famous, people like Brad Pitt and Pete Edochie? They were us once, too. They weren’t always superstars. They were unknowns who hadn’t really done anything except do the normal things we do. I’m sure they had similar mundane pastimes, just like us. And people you maybe haven’t heard of, such as Tunde kelani, Chico Ejiro, Tchidi chikere, and J.J. George, Amaka Igwe who are at the top of the entertainment industry behind-the-scenes, they were just starting out once, too.
STEP THREE: Forget About Fear
I know, I know. Easy to say. I’m not saying don’t feel it. I’m not saying fight it. It’s going to be there just like it is every time you step out of your comfort zone and start a new career endeavor, especially one you’ve built up in your mind for a long time. So get used to it and try not to think about it. Simple!
STEP FOUR: Find Mentors
I divide mentors into two categories: real mentors and paper mentors. Real mentors are people you know already or reach out to for information/guidance. You develop a relationship with them where they impart knowledge to you and, whether they know it or not (it really doesn’t matter), they are your mentors. Paper mentors are people you read about (or see stories about in the media). They don’t know you, but you are educated and inspired by them. Two of my entertainment career paper mentors (among many, many of them) are Mel Gibson and Denzel Washinton. For completely different reasons, each motivates me and I get lessons for my own career by reading about theirs. I advise you to find mentors of each type, real and paper, and use their stories to help you with your own entertainment career path.
STEP FIVE: Commit
There will be challenges. There will be times of doubt. You will hear “no.” Maybe you will hear “no” a lot. You may want to quit. But the sooner you decide you will not quit, the sooner you go all in, at least in your mind, the more energy you will put into the task at hand, be it becoming an entertainment marketing executive or a television director or music manager or the next Brad Pitt/Julia Roberts.
So start with Step One and by the time you get through Step Five, you will have a solid base from which to continue your journey toward making your entertainment dreams a reality. No matter where you are, no matter who you are, no matter what.
