Mostly, we hear the stories of musicians who said they quit school to do music and now, they’re successful. For this reason, there’s a popular notion held by people that music is for those who are ‘block headed’ and also a way to be famous and get rich quickly.
Well, impressive songstress, Adina, has strongly advised upcoming musicians who has the mentality to quit school and focus on music.
According to her, they’ll fail big time if they try that. Adina noted that some level of education is needed when one intends to compose good music.
She also urged upcoming musicians to invest their energy to learn how to sing on stage, train their voices and others from YouTube and take part in reality shows to prepare them for the future.
“You need to take music seriously. Music is not for those who are blockheads at school. I went to school. I completed SHS and went to Central University, completed and then decided to do music. I did not enter music with the perception that if my education does not go well, I will enter into music. When I was young, I knew I will do music so the school was a formality. I knew I wanted to get a degree at the University so that it will help me in my career,” she said.
“When you go to school, you become enlightened, it opens your mind, even rappers who may ask what they will gain from going to school when you go, they will teach you literature, poetry and the rest. The rap that you are doing is poems, you have to rhyme, so let us take the music seriously just as a doctor will take his work serious because it is a whole industry on its own. We have different aspects of it so wherever you will find yourself, take it seriously.” she stated.
Adina made all these known in an interview on Agyenkwa Extra, a sister station of Atinka FM, hosted by DJ B Ice.
