The music business is not easy . At times you are everywhere but making no money. Some will be on one spot making millions.
Now let’s break it for you. Ko C, Tzy , Daphne, etc do very good music that trends and people dance to it. They are more Famous than @Mic Monsta but truth is they can’t match Mic Monsta sales if they drop an album. Jovi will stay home the whole year , giving up on fame and creating just an impact .
Mr Leo sure discovered that it hurts to be Famous and broke. George Enow of Enowdigital made a post last week telling the public how broke our famous celebrities are and it is True. The problem is they just want to be famous and they ignore impact.
What brings an artiste money is the impact they create in their society, country, or Continent.
Look at this, The Mr Leo of Jamais Jamais had all thé famé he could. Little girls were fainting when they see him . Everyone was talking about him. But how many of these people could buy his album? How many institutions could call him for a talk or deals? How many people still listen to Jamais Jamais today? Now, this is how our artists enter depression. You are broke and very famous. Your fans think you are stingy when you don’t do giveaways not knowing you are really broke and they the fans are even better than you .
Now look at the Mr Leo of today .
In a very short while, he has made it around the world and he is a member of the most prestigious Music Body on earth. Something he couldn’t do when he was everywhere like corruption in CAMEROON. Mr Leo is a member of the Recording Academy. The Academy which talks about who is fit to be nominated for the Grammy. Even if Mr Leo DOESN’T win a Grammy, it feels good to be part of those deciding on who to nominate.
Mr Leo’s Album was Live at the New York Times Square last year. The Lion of Africa Album was live at the New York Time Square and we are sure you know what that means.
Mr Leo also launched his Album in the Presence of the Canadian High Commissioner to CAMEROON . In fact they sponsored it . You sure have no idea what he made as money from there .
One truth you might also have to know is ,
If Mr Leo released his album when he dropped Jamais Jamais and some Bangers, he could never sell 200 copies. There is a kind of music that everyone will like but won’t buy . Mr leo made enough money from the sales of his Album this year .A copy was 5000frs and many people bought it .
People will still listen to the songs he is doing now in 10 years but won’t do same with the bangers he was dropping .
In music when you choose impact, your life gets better, when you choose fame, your life becomes terrible. The worst is when you can’t handle the fame. You are famous and broke. People expect a lot from you and you can’t even take care of yourself?
Mr Leo might not be everywhere now but he is making great cash and working Strategically. He is making Corporate Cash which is far bigger and better. Mr JavnyuyJoybert once made a post about this . In the days ahead, we will talk more about it .
