The untold tale of how rapper Vic O killed my musical ambition.
Let me reveal something to you guys. I once nursed the ambition to become a music star. I wanted to sing hit records. I wanted to be popular. Sadly, I don’t have that dream anymore because it was stolen from me by that joke called Vic O.
Years ago in a time not too long ago, I had written my killer songs. These were hot bangers and tracks I had composed with sweat, blood and tears. After stuffing my notepad with my witty lines, catchy hooks and mind boggling conceptual songs I looked for a studio that was at par with my musical brilliance.
After a few months I found one called ‘You Be Mugu’ music studio in a coded place in Lagos. Forget the name; this studio was of international standard. It had everything including a maverick producer and a studio engineer of world class repute.
Happy that I found the studio I took my last money on Earth and paid for three studio sessions. In these three studio sessions I recorded my killer three tracks that would shake the world to its foundation.
Everybody in the studio loved my songs including two artistes named DK and BF. The studio cleaner and toilet cleaner we called Victor O also went gaga over my tracks.
Due to my songwriting prowess DK and BF told me to help them co-write their tracks called ‘Ojuelegba’, and ‘Final’. They were back to back hits before they were even mixed and mastered.
Sadly all these five songs never saw the light of day. Later that night when the studio was closed, Victor O broke into the studio and stole all the hard drives. The little rascal took an early morning bus to his village before finally absconding to Italy.
I was devastated. I was sad. I almost committed suicide. My brilliant works stolen from me just like that.
When I thought I had gotten over the loss, an artiste named Vic O from Italy popped up with the songs I had written. The gems I constructed ‘Why Evils’, and ‘After Party’ this idiot destroyed it with his accent. To make matters worse these songs made him popular, very popular.
Such is life. Why didn’t I collect my songs that night? Why didn’t I tell the engineer and producer to delete the data? I was stupid. I still feel pangs of sadness anytime I hear my poorly delivered classics ‘Why Evils’, and ‘After Party’.
As for DK and BF I hear the songs I co-wrote for them on radio. They are smash hits! Unfortunately Victor O sold it to some artistes who are now making correct money off the stolen tracks.
‘You Be Mugu’ studio is still open today with many artistes recording their killer tracks there.
