With more than 15 years of experience in the music business, Steve Osagie recently discussed how he unearths raw potential in one of his last interviews.
He said: ” I have come to understand that talent contributes between 10-20 per cent to achieving success in the industry. “
“I am able to tell if someone is going to be successful from their work rate, personality and strength of character. “
“You may be talented but if your character is nothing to write home about, you are not going to get a lot of people to support or vouch for you.”
“Unless you have a lot of money to spend and spray around, you are not going to get that organic love for you and your music.”
Steve Osagie, a well-known personality in Nigerian music artist management, also shared his opinion on the prevalence of songs with unappealing lyrics and content.
Music is subjective,” he declared. Being a purist, I appreciate excellent songwriting. I adore artists who want to spread a message.
“However, music reflects what individuals are going through and what they want to express at different times and periods.
“As an expression, music is. I can never prevent someone from expressing themselves in any way they choose. Some people prefer to write songs about having fun, while others want to talk about love.
“Others want to write and sing about what they are passing through in their lives. So, an artiste may not necessarily write the same theme years apart. So, music is subjective
“Once, you are writing music you love and want to listen to, there would definitely one or two million persons who would love it too. You may not know what people like and would not like. Just write your music and put it out”
