First of all, you will start like everyone else, in the shower, rapping and lip singing for your life like Toddrick Hall, and then your family will give you the props you want, they say you just might end up a musician or rapper. Your friends will say “Bro you’re the shit, the world can’t handle this. when you get signed you’d put us on and we are going to be rich,” which is the beginning of your career.
You will buy a notepad and write your songs and raps in it, you will love writing songs and raps so much you will begin writing it everywhere, your school books and textbooks, your table, your clothes, your father’s newspaper and your mother’s church diary. Then your parents and siblings will start to worry, they will loath the encouragement they gave you the first time. Your sister will say you are too loud and all you know is rapping, your mother will call your singing foolish and your father will be gravely worried if you will ever finish school like 2Face and join the family business, he will worry about your grades in the university, and about your future.
You will leave secondary school and get into the university; there you have gained enough freedom to chase your dreams. You will start writing more raps and going to school shows and everybody will know you’re a rapper. You will love the props you get from guys at lecture halls, the wink you get from girls at shows you have been to, they will call you your stage name when you walk around town and it’s how you prefer to be addressed. your real name will become obsolete. After that you will hook up with other rappers in school and start frequenting the studio, selling your valuable items to pay for sessions and becoming less interested in school studies, Aluta continua.

With the birth of a stage name, you will start to find common grounds with other big stage names that will make you start dreaming. You will watch some Asap Rocky and Future videos and see where they came from and how they used to live compared to the way they now live and then you want to be like that, to have all the money, women and all the attention of the world, you will want your diamonds to dance and your jeans to be Balmain. You will listen to M.I and Jesse Jags, you will watch Ice prince going from Jos to London and you too will want to leave your ghetto life, the ghetto girls to the fresher and slimmer chicks on Lagos Island, you will want a drop top like Kida Kudz and gold chains like wizkid, you will want to be like Shabba.
But you are not a Jos boy, you didn’t win peak milk talents competition and nobody in Ojuelegba know your story. In other for your dreams to come to fruition you as an upcoming artist will pay to promote your songs on popular blogs, hopefully, someone big will listen to it, you will have to hustle your track on radio stations and try to make it trend on social media until you have enough audience willing to give you a listening ear, probably enough for you to be a popular internet rapper or for you to get signed.
