A Nigerian musician who has been successful in the industry has shared his experience after being frustrated in the industry.
Mavin Records artiste, Dr. Sid has revealed that he suffered mild stroke after his career got so bad to the point that he got so frustrated with life.
He said the frustration nearly cost him his life. He then dropped the submission that “the race is not for the swift, neither is the battle for the strong, or bread to men of understanding.”
He also added that if Nigeria must get better, the change must start with the individual.
In his words;
“I have had a period of real difficulty. I have had a period of financial difficulty. I was making music, nothing was working. I wasn’t getting booked at shows. Of my own doing, I didn’t have passive income. I didn’t have anything outside of music. I had health issues; I had high blood pressure and a mild stroke last year. I almost died.”
“At that point, you think to yourself ‘What’s going on?’ I’ve struggled. In struggling you understand that the only person responsible for the change is you. Same thing with Naija as a whole. The issue with this country starts with individuals.”
