Press Release 1: I Never Loved Singing – My Music Journey By Kalusian
I never loved singing. Growing up as a teenager in a little town in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. The last thing I wanted to be part of was a choir. The thought of a choir robe or choir uniform freaked me out as well as the argument that goes on when a new choir outfit is to be made, the color, the style etc. But I love the music thing so I thought becoming an instrumentalist is better for me at least we don’t always need a uniform to be on stage, I thought.
Also, I never had money to buy a guitar. I would ask my friend for his acoustic guitar and he was kind enough to give me to practice at home often time. My passion grew with the bass guitar but I had no bass guitar so I used the acoustic guitar to learn how to play bass guitar.
Fast forward- I moved to Ghana in 2007 and joined the praise team KICC church in Accra as one of the bassist. One Saturday morning, we were rehearsing songs for Sunday worship service. There was this particular song we had to do but the lead vocalist wasn’t present. Suddenly I saw the choir leader walking up to me with a microphone in his hand. He said, “Hey, Youngman I want you to try this song”. I had to look back to be sure it was me. Before I could say Jack, He handed the mic to me.
Dropping the bass down felt like an hour and walking up front to sing felt like a century. I was kinder sure I could sing the song but I wasn’t sure how he knew I could sing at all cos I barely sang in public. Whilst singing, the music director stepped in and was amazed who was singing. Then She requested that I’ll be the one to sing the song on Sunday. Wow hat huge huge for me, standing in front of about 2000person or more for the first time, I almost said No.
It was Sunday morning, I was dressed up ready to sing. First service was boom and 30minutes later we jumped in for the second service and I had to sing same song. At the end of the second service, someone slipped a note into my front pocket, I stepped aside to see what it was, wow! It was a $100usdollar bill, in Africa that was huge and uncommon. Another person gave me new pair of trousers.
Immediately I was from instrumentalist to singer. Two months later, there was a major city wide concert and TV3, national Tv would be broadcasting Live and guess which song was on set? That song I did! I was almost passing out, the stage light, smokes, Live camera, and thousands of people across the city, it was an experience for me. I was so nervous, that 3hours to the time, I had to iron my choir uniform thrice! On the third time, the trouser split because it was overly ironed. Whoops a friends came in and suggested some amazing physics. He turned the cloth inside out, took white paper and glue it to that spot, it worked! Hahah well I had to be careful how I danced on stage otherwise you know…
Its being a journey these 14years, music has brought me to different places and meet different faces in Ghana, Nigeria, Gambia, Sierra Leone, Sweden, Finland and many more but deep down in me I feel I’m just about to begin, there’s so much ahead and it can only get better is my way of saying that. Yes, that’s my new song coming out on my birthday- 25th of May, 2022. It will be on every digital platform.
