My Songs Were Bad Because I Do Not Know How To Sing - Jim Iyke

Jim Iyke is finally speaking the truth years after he failed miserably at music.

Recall that the singer dropped a collaborative project with 2baba Idibia called Who I Am. The song made mild impact on the airwaves, and later he released yet another single, Born to Do This, featuring Puffy T. Well, he was not really born to do music because the venture failed and the actor quickly returned to Nollywood.

Now, he is telling his fans the truth: he can’t sing to save his life, plus, he knew nothing much about the music industry before delving into it.

Here’s what he told PUNCH:
“My music career is non-existent. My mentor in business once told me that the biggest investment you can ever have is yourself; don’t ever go into a venture that you don’t understand. I was interested in music and like everything else that I have foresight for, I saw where the career was going. I knew I did not know how to sing but I wanted to invest in the business, so I decided to try my luck. I did it so that no one would ever tell me that I did not try or I do not know anything about music. It is just like fashion, I know everything about that sector; there is nothing I do not know about real estate as well. Since I was about 12 years old, I have known about real estate because my father is a construction engineer. To get money to buy a bicycle, I have carried blocks and supervised construction of a building.

“I wanted to invest in music but I needed a guinea pig. I could not use an artiste I hired because there would be a producer that would know that I did not know about the business; so I got involved personally. I sang a few bad songs, got a cheque for it and understood how the business works. I just used it to bid for some time. Of course, I knew the songs were bad; I am my greatest critic. I had to put some ‘swag’ into the songs that featured Tuface to sing one or two lines. To be honest, how many true talents are in the industry at the moment? Most of the less talented ones are getting far ahead of the talented ones. It is not about having talent but understanding the business and project what works for you. It is all about the way you ‘package’ it and sell it to the world; that is all. I can name a few terrible artistes but they are getting way ahead of the gifted ones. It is because they understand show business; I understand show business.”

Yep, nothing beats a man who tells himself the truth!

nice one, you have to try, even if you fail, you can fail 99 times and win the 100th time, you just have to keep trying, when a consistent effort is applied failure is part of the success. Congratulations on failing many times but having a better understanding.
