How A Nairalander Is About To Make "History" (Pic) by fnep2smooth(m): 5:54pm On Aug 23, 2015
I still can't forget the first day I was called out in my class to sing a song. I was about 8 years old then in ilorin, BB Nursery And Primary School, Agbo-Oba, I can feel the shyness within me. I was lost in my own dreams even though I write my own songs then but I still can't face the crowd and sing it.


They call me Fnep Shevoo© which consists of names and dreams. I started writing song when I was little, even though am not that brilliant during my primary school days, but I still try to pull myself together in creating a brand that I believe will touch the heart of many.

I write rap song, r&b with a little pop. I got inspired into music because I was moved by my brother song's collection. Those days of 2Pac, Biggy, Nas, Jay-Z, Sisqo, Eminem, Dr Dre and many more. Most times, I try to focus my song on the way people live around me.


Writing my songs comes from my inner heart, even when people tries to say something to bring down my morals by saying things like "Your kind of song can't sell here, you got to change" but when I tries to give them examples of young and old talented artist, who write good songs. They keep saying " Your kind of song can't sell here, you got to change"


Writing in a dark quite place still gives me the charge to write a good flows and later record it with my old IBM LAPTOP through a software call "Audacity". This has been my mode of writing songs because I can't afford a studio section (very funny). But what keeps coming to my mind is there words " Your song can't sell here, you got to change" But what if I don't wonna change? What if I still believed in the pattern I flow?


Now, how can I create a brand that will be accepted by the general public? How can I get the recognition when some people around me keep telling me to change my pattern of song? All this keep running on my mind and i need your answers please.


Am about to make history as the only artist that write, voice , mix his song with an old IBM laptop with a software call "Audacity".

Below are my start up pix?

By the way, My names are Ekenma Peter Nwabueze
( Fnep Shevoo )

This is my HeadPhone I need to listen to my voice when recording with the inbuilt laptop Mic.

The next item is my mouse and this is all I need to create a well standard music production without the help any electrical or music instrument.

Bro..... I can kill for that laptop

She made me who I am today.


Creativity is in you if you can unleash it.
I have no money, support or any link but I believe that when you are creative you can turn sand to bread.

Which am about to do.
Thanks

this is my perfect time in recording my songs cos most time the noise in the day time always make my work sound bad
due to noise from the back ground, and don't forget i don't use boot. just the inbuilt mic.


this morning, i will be arranging my songs and i will also drop a link to it by soon ( when i have waken up )

this is the screenshot of how the process is going when you are recording with this awesome software

if you are an artist who solely relay on autotune grin
this software is a bad luck for you, you can only one work on your natural sweet voice ( if you have one )
and if you don't have a good voice, you can just stick to your expensive studio auto tune and leave this software for the broke A*s Nigg* like us to work with.


one thing i love about this software is the ability to edit all your work from
*noise remover
*sound filter
*compressor
*normalizing
*Mixing ( this one is my favorite ) you need it when you are through with the above tools or effect.
*etc

first off, i admire your passion,dedication and resilience.
But you really need to upgrade your equipment to fit what's in vogue.
A lot of people are into music and you need to create a different sound which you can't do with your present laptop

but i must say, you're really funny.
Work on your grammar too,that way people would take you more serious

Thanks.

The laptop was given to me as a gift so for now , the laptop still work fine and I am not ready to get a new one this year. So till next year.


Sorry about my typing, not everyone is use to typing long article and live tutorial like this with a phone. So bear with it please.

My mean motive is to enlighten people about the need to be creative no matter the limited resources they have.
