TNM -: What Prompted Your doing music ?
ChizzyMusic -: The thing is this, a lot of people venture into music nowadays for fun, i guess i was one of them, got a chance to record, tried it out and it made sense, then i said to myself why not make more ? As i grew older, i discovered my passion for music and i figured that why not give this out to the public ? Why should just my friends listen? Tried that out and it worked out, honestly if you don’t have passion for it, don’t do it.
TNM -: How did your music Journey begin ?
ChizzyMusic -: Trust me when i say it was difficult, it was difficult! Music isn’t something you jump into, if you want to do music , put your mind to it. I started music in ‘2015’ and as at then i had two or three singles which are now scrapped off , in 2016 i made my mind to take it professionally , but then my school, ‘the famous covenant university’ also made everything difficult, making music was impossible so i waited till holidays, dropped some singles, had a little fan base with my friends who supported me. 2017 the same. This year God’s been good to me and everything has been going fine, my major difficulties honestly were balancing school and music, discovering my sound & getting people to listen.
