Sorry this thought just entered into my head now. Lol. Quite hilarious thou. Is it possible for such to happen. I was listening to a music programme on the radio, and I was quite engrossed with the things am hearing from the programme of how our artists are making exploit and also elated in my spirit and I feel like a super star, then i remember that i have no recorded song even thou i have been writing songs... Oh my, what of those record labels can they see my ability through the prowess of my songs lyrics even without a recorded song,!!!!

Food for thought

its all about starting small with a very very large amount of talent,not just anyone can be a songwriter or lyricist,you have to graduate from music school first dude..you cant just walk into the hq of mavins and say you wanna be the songwriter there...if you are talented and u know your stuff..do a few free jobs..when the market becomes large..then you add a price...as you are getting better and more popular,you increase your price per verse...then when you arre fully known in the underground as a good songwriter,thats when the label owners call you to write for them ..trust me its a very long process..you have to be determined and start very early,i started when i was 12,am 17 and already making a living..how's that?? smiley smiley smiley
