A day in the life…
Elion Victory is a local artiste who started as a guitarist. The young man used to work with Dr. Claude as back-up singer and guitarist until when he decided to part ways and go his own way.below is his typical day;
I wake up at 7a.m and say a morning prayer. I then have a cup of tea before I start work. I do most of my work at home. I start by listening to music especially of those artistes I believe are good.
As I listen, I take note of what is interesting and what I believe is what makes the music good.
I then listen to my own music.
I also note down what I have to do so that I can even make it more interesting.
Depending on the plans for each particular day, I may decide to meet my manager if there is need.
By 10, I am busy composing my music and I do it until 2p.m. I have lunch at 1p.m. If I happen to have something to do in the studio, I get there after 3p.m.
I then head to town where I interact with colleagues and fellow musicians.
This helps me get updates in the music industry hence giving me a guideline on what to do so as to win the market.
However, I make sure I am home at 9, have supper and by 10, I am in bed.
