I’m in the heavens, oh! How beautiful! magnificent and soul captivating! It doesn’t get better than this,
“Heyyyy!!!!” That’s mum waking me up from my trance. How do people just spoil your fun without respecting your guts? My mum is the only “people” and she could reset me with a slap if I revolt, or make me homeless.
Welcome to my space! This is what happens to me anytime my headset is above my head, plugged to my ears as good music travels down my spine.
Music has done a whole of things to me; I don’t really have a specific taste for music, I listen to music depending on my mood. Sometimes, I listen to music to steal myself away from some conversations or people.
While I am listening to a song, the sounds take me to an imaginary studio recording my own. When I told my mother “I’m becoming a singer”, she looked at me and said “which one do you want to do” I smiled and responded “mummy if you listen to me sing ehn, you will agree that I really need to enter the studio”
Infact, I have gotten challenging complements from people when I sing “you have a very sweet voice, why not try music?” This went on for a very long time, I started writing songs as the inspiration comes. It was like I was not one of the few born to make music, for I never completed the writing of any song. It must be that I am just one of the millions born to enjoy listening to music.
Music has been a phenomenal part of my life; it relaxed my thoughts, influenced my ideas, rejuvenated my life and brought me closer to my creator.
Without music, I don’t know how my life would have been. The sound, the lyrics, the tone, the mood, the beat, name it!
Music is like the twin sister I never had, second best friend after my mother. Everyone that knows me know that I’m always with my partner, headset.
May we never embark on a journey and forget our earpiece. I make sure I have two in my bag in case someone ask for one or it goes faulty.
