MUSIC MAESTRO EMMYKOKZ UNVEILS OFFICIAL ART COVER FOR NEW SINGLE ‘SOMETHING’ AND DROPS A HINT ON THE SINGLE

 

As we anticipate the official release of the single ‘something’, Music Maestro, popularly known as Emmykokz officially unveils the cover art. This is in a bid to keep his fans in close contact to the update of his works.

 

The single, SOMETHING takes an easy blend of worship with an easy going lyrically that one might sing along to. The title alone throws in a lot of surprises, suspense and expectations. The song is about thanksgiving, praise and appreciation to God. It explains how incomprehensibly mighty Gods love is for us bringing one to a point of realizing we owe God thanks.

 

In his words, ‘The music to me takes a self-reflexive angle one that makes one sit back and think about how wonderful God has been. Most times we fail to reflect on this and I believe with this song, it might draw one into such act since the year is almost coming to an end. We definitely need to see reasons to be grateful to God. For me, the simplicity of the song was so much important as would love to have everyone sing along to the song as they reflect and see reasons to give gratitude to God. For me, I am so much grateful to God and taking a reflexive stand to see how much he has been faithful to me, my family, friends and loved ones gave birth to this song. What are you grateful for? I am grateful for a whole lot of things… I pray this song triggers your need to be grateful.’

 

The single is set to drop this month. Wait for it.

Easy Steps On How To Build Your First 1,000 Loyal Fans – Kulqee

Facts With Kulqee: Easy Steps on How to Build Your First 1,000 Loyal Fans

 

The aim of every entertainer is to build a cultic or loyal fan base. It is the number of fans an entertainer has that determines his/her pays. Thus, calculating the sales made by an entertainer is equivalent to his/her fan base. With this said, building a loyal fan base is key. By saying a loyal fan base, I mean; fans that are dedicated to you and your contents and appreciates every work of yours. It is one to have a fan, it is another to retain the fan and make them loyal to you.

The entertainment industry is getting crowded (even though there is still space to accommodate many), thus it takes a lot of creativity, strategy, consistency, uniqueness, and dedication to make an impact in the industry. Selling yourself is the bottom-line so it requires a lot of energy to sell a unique product to the market, as you will need to appeal to the market, get them to accept your product or compete with the trend hoping to break in. Either way, these simple steps will help you cultivate at least 1,000 loyal fans when effectively utilized.

 

1. ADVERTISE YOURSELF.

Every entertainer is an ambassador of his brand. He or she represents all his or her brand is about, guess this is why people tend to despise your contents when they hate you. Mind you when I say do not let people hate you, I mean when they hate on you for messing up or pride etc. If they hate you for jealousy or sth never mind, they more your haters like the one EFE has, the more you get sustained. As everyone is going to be criticizing you and thus make you the talk of the town. This generates more fans and boosts the confidence of your already existing fans

Therefore, you need to properly portray your brand. Be active on the scene when events are happening. Do it in a way you will not look desperate or lame but rather noticed. Just being noticed may not seem like a breakthrough but, the more you’re seen, the more people will begin to wonder who you are – leading to conversations and questions that will draw them close to your craft and bi-products.

Eventually, building relationships with people, playing the “good guy game” and getting their attention. This is what happens when good companies try to advertise their products; they don’t ask people to check out their products, they GIVE THEM REASONS TO HAVE THEIR PRODUCTS. Give then reasons to support you. Nobody will support your hustle if there is nothing exceptional about your personality. Do you know people are doing you a favor being your fan? Therefore, you have to give them reasons to render such favor. Every fan you have (or will have) is making an investment in you. They are investing time, money, energy and their reputation- and it’s your job to make them feel it is a good investment. In other words, be LOYAL to your fans…

2. PACKAGE YOURSELF

You have to package yourself in a way the market won’t have a choice than to buy your product. It has been an established fact that nobody fans poverty. Therefore, appealing to pity will only ruin things. You might end up getting their pity and help for a while to help your broke life but once you have the funds; they will be like “we’re done saving your ass”. So you definitely need to package yourself and APPEAR RICH or WELL TO DO as you mustn’t be in a real sense.

Consistently pushing your image and brand by dishing out QUALITY bi-products, HD photos, Video Clips, Interview sessions, will definitely help. You obviously need to keep stepping up. Many Nigerians despise Nigerian Television Association NTA because they’ve refused to change their jingles, video quality, and studio appearance. This being said, you need to show your investors (fans) that you are progressing and their investment is actually yielding results.

Most people don’t follow artists because they love their songs but cos they like their imagery which is their fashion sense, crazy dope pictures etc….The difference between sachet water and bottle water is packaging. More respect to offering to the later because of packaging. So in building your first 1,000 fan base, playing with imagery and packaging is vital

 

3. EXPORT YOURSELF

You cannot be an Ajah artiste for years. It is obviously a crime to keep being an Enugu artiste or whatever town or location you are. Leverage, connect and collaborate. Think expansion always. Being stagnant and roaming around a box or a locale in no distant time will make even your very first fans i.e family and friends see you as a joke. The entertainment industry is built on a blockchain called relationship. Connecting is key. Learn to offer a heart before asking for a hand. Do not go to people asking for help, rather seek for what services you can offer. Now when I say connection, I necessary don’t mean worshiping the rich guys and trampling on the average guys. Anybody can be rich in the next second. A single hook can blow up someone. They cannot link you up if you weren’t nice. So you got to be nice. People are fanning your person. Building your first 1,000 fans requires you to push out yourself in the good sense. You might not have the funds to collaborate but relating and leveraging properly can do a lot for you.

Please note, these steps will only replicate the above results if your product, which is your talent and personality, is marketable. That is to say, you need to work on yourself to maximize these steps.

Ayo Vincent, Eniola Adisa, Others, Speak On “Worship Without Limits” As Bolarinde Preps For 2nd Season

Having released 2 singles between December 2017 and January 2018 – “For Your Praise” and “You Amaze Me”, Gospel music minister Bolarinde is preparing for her “Worship Without Limit”concert.

Bolarinde’s new singles which are 2 sides of a coin, raising adulations in exposition of the magnificent characteristics that makes God supreme, went viral on release and have become a prelude for the next edition of the “Worship Without Limits” concert coming up in April this year.

“Worship Without Limits”, her mandate to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world leading people into worship in spirit and in truth, as they experience miracles, signs and wonders, salvation and deliverance, is a global musical outreach which is also evangelical.

The past edition, which is the first season featured Gospel music ministers including Ayo Vincent, Eniola Adisa, Elzaccai, Nike Boluwade, Pastor Obed, amongst others.

“It’s a privilege to be a part of the first season. The presence of the Lord was tangible as praise and worship ascended. I bless God for Bolarinde and look forward to the next edition.”

“In the presence of our Lord, there is [indeed] no limitation. Praise and worship is comely unto our God. When we stand to worship, the host of heaven joins us to praise our God,” Gospel singer and Worship leader Eniola Adisa said.

Bolarinde hinted that the 2nd season of “Worship without Limits” is coming up in April 2018. She made this known at the concluding part of the first season which held on the 15th of October, 2017.

Self-Harm on the Rise Among Teen Girls – Jim Liebelt

*The following is excerpted from an online article posted on HealthDay.

 

Teen girls are much more likely to self-harm than boys, and the dangerous practice is on the rise.

That’s the conclusion of a new British study that also found a strong link between self-harm — practices such as cutting or burning oneself — and a higher risk of suicide.

Researchers reviewed information from nearly 650 general practices in the United Kingdom. The records had data on almost 9,000 patients aged 10 to 19 who self-harmed between 2001 and 2014. The investigators compared those children to more than 170,000 kids who didn’t self-harm, matched for age and gender.

The rate of self-harm was about three times higher among girls than boys. The rate rose 68 percent among girls ages 13 to 16 from 2011 to 2014.

Referrals to mental health services within 12 months of self-harming were 23 percent less likely for children in the poorest areas, even though the rates of self-harm were higher in these areas.

The researchers also found that children and teens who self-harmed had a nine times increased risk of death from non-natural causes. The risk from suicide and alcohol/drug poisoning was especially pronounced.

The high self-harm rate among teen girls may be due to common mental health problems in females at this age. Biological factors such as puberty and onset of sexual activity may also play a role in self-harm, according to lead researcher Cathy Morgan, from the University of Manchester, and colleagues.

The researchers said there is some evidence that common mental health disorders are on the rise among teens. This may be because they “are living in more stressful times,” Morgan’s team said.

The study was published in BMJ.

Christian Magistrate Fired for Views on Gay Adoption Loses Appeal Case

Christian Magistrate Fired for Views on Gay Adoption Loses Appeal Case

 

A Christian magistrate in the UK who was fired from his position due to his views on gay adoption has lost his appeals court case.

The Christian Post reports that Richard Page, a magistrate for the Kent and Medway National Health Service Trust, was fired after he stated his opinion on national TV that children are better off when they are placed in a family with a mother and a father rather than in a family comprised of a same-sex couple.

After making this statement, Page was accused of being “biased and prejudiced against single sex adopters.”

Page has defended his beliefs by stating, “My responsibility as a magistrate, as I saw it, was to do what I considered best for the child, and my feeling was therefore that it would be better if it was a man and woman who were the adopted parents.”

The Croydon Employment Tribunal, which denied Page’s appeal, maintained that he was fired not for his views on gay adoption, but because he participated in television media appearances to discuss his views on parenting.

Page remains committed to continuing his legal fight despite this recent setback. He is being backed by the Christian Legal Centre. Andrea Williams of the Centre said that the tribunal’s ruling “makes a mockery of the freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and the rule of law.”

“There is no real difference between suppressing dissent and suppressing an expression of dissent. To split hairs in this way makes no sense,” Williams continued.

Faith’s Influence on Politics: Why it Will Not be Going Away – Rob Schwarzwalder

“Social issues to return to the forefront on GOP trail”

 

That’s the title of an article in a recent edition of the Washington Post. It discusses the North Carolina legislation prohibiting men from using women’s bathrooms, Donald Trump’s dismissiveness of the issue, and Ted Cruz’s support of the Tarheel State’s commonsense efforts to sustain privacy and security in public accommodations.

 

What is striking about the article is its title.  “Return to the forefront?”  First, from the earliest days of the current presidential campaign to the present, social issues – protecting the unborn and their mothers, religious liberty, the radical agenda of LGBT activists, etc. – have been in the top tier of issues the candidates have been discussing.

The debate over the North Carolina measure, as well that over issues like dismemberment abortion and protecting the free exercise of religious conviction, are not sudden intrusions, as if unwelcome and unruly guests had burst into a sedate dinner party.  These concerns are at the heart of the kind of country we want to be.  Will we honor life at all its stages, uphold religious liberty as our most essential freedom, esteem marriage as the union of one man and one woman, for life, and strengthen families to better enable every child to be raised in a home with a mom and a dad?  Or will we exalt radical sexual autonomy, continuously redefine human sexuality, treat the unborn as mere collections of blood and tissue and dehumanize their mothers through abortion-on-demand, and encourage the fracturing of families through laws that foster divorce, cohabitation, promiscuity, and pornography?

 

Second, secular journalists seem perpetually amazed that issues like abortion and religious liberty are actual concerns of real people.  It is natural that like-minded people talk mostly to others with the same perspectives and don’t engage as much with those whose outlook is fundamentally different than their own.

 

Yet over the past several decades, has it not become apparent that a massive, even preponderant number of Republican voters are socially conservative and that, as the country undergoes profound social turmoil, the convictions of these voters will inform what their party’s candidates discuss in their campaigns?

 

As Terry Mattingly has convincingly documented for many years, most reporters “don’t get religion.”  Mike Cromartie, long-time director of the Ethics and Public Policy Center’s Faith Angle Forum, has spoken of once being called by a journalist at a premier publication who “asked for the name of the author and publisher when Cromartie mentioned the book of Ephesians.”

 

Christians should not belittle journalists for their ignorance, but nor should journalists fail to recognize the significance of the traditional religious faith of tens of millions of their fellow citizens and its implications for American public life.  As the Pew Research Center on Religion and Public Life documented in a study released last year, more than 70 percent of the American people identify as Christians and many Jews and Muslims carefully observe the tenets of their faiths.

 

Of course, not all of these self-identified believers share the same convictions about the doctrines and practices and political implications of their faiths.  But faith does have implications, real and compelling ones, for one’s beliefs about and conduct regarding the kind of government we should have and the kind of culture we should be.  To dismiss them or pretend they are inconsequential shows a certain contempt for one’s fellow citizens and a measure of intellectual dishonesty when reporting about law, politics, social life, and so forth.

 

Writing of that great 19th century French observer of our then-new republic, Alexis de Tocqueville, historian Alan Kahan argues that “Tocqueville rejected the militant secularism that saw religion as the enemy, and there is no reason to believe he would have changed his mind today. He rejected equally the claim of some religious people that freedom was the enemy of religion. For Tocqueville, the only way for either freedom or religion to prosper in the long run was by recognizing that they were mutually necessary, and mutually beneficial.”

 

When journalists, on television or in print or online or on the radio, miss this central insight – that religion and liberty are entwined not only in the fabric of our country but the hearts and hands of scores of millions of Americans – invariably they will be surprised by social issues that just keep “returning” to the fore of public concern.

 

And that should be no surprise to anyone.
