My Journey In Music 🎼

I love music to the point that it calms me down when I'm troubled.

My mom was a choir member during her pregnancy for me, I guess that's why I grew up to love music. I was just 4 years old when I started developing passion for music, I was always happy each time I was given a chance to sing in church or lead in morning assembly in school and I gave my best to each opportunity.

After secondary school, I wanted to further in music but my dad always wanted me to be a banker and so he didn't give me a chance to choose what I'll study in school, he felt it will be useless of me to study music in school. His question will always be, what kind of job will I get after school if I should study music, or how will I take care of myself which such certificate. Well I had no option than to study what he asked me to, but then my passion grew stronger for music.

I was done with school and of course I came out with a good result but I wasn't satisfied cause that's not my area; I've always dreamed of becoming one of the influential musicians in the christian world,by this time I was already a choir director in my church although my school days. I listened to music every single day since I got older and I practiced it anywhere I found myself, sometimes I screamed at home to stretch my voice though it wasn't funny to my parents and the neighbors, but I couldn't help.

I was invited to a concert to sing, I got myself prepared for the concert, it was finally the day and I was so happy I would be performing in a large crowd which will give me greater opportunities. The program had begun and I was excited that soon my name will be called, but it seemed like I wouldn't get to my turn .I watch as others performed and I learnt new ways of singing,the program was brought to a close and I was never called, I went home disappointed and pained after all the rehearsal, questions kept popping, maybe I'm not good enough, or I'm not popular enough , I played music that night to calm my nerves.

I kept on going for concert not to sing but to learn , even to the ones I was wasn't invited.
In one of the concert I was privilege to in the technical that day, while working I overheard that the next singer which was a lady was to present with someone,but he disappointed her, I asked where the lady was,I was told where she was seated and I hurried to her, I asked the song she wanted to present, I was familiar with the song.
I asked if I could present with her that I knew the song so well ,she gave me a confused look and I told her she could trust me, well she agreed but with doubt if I could sing.

It was time for her to present the song, we got on stage , she began song "when I am down and tho my soul so worry", I was to come in, when I sang the crowd applauded and she looked at me with a smile. we entered the chorus and I harmonised the song, I could feel the flow of the song. After the presentation she thanked me and wanted us to have a date, well I opted in.

We went on a date and she introduced me to the music industry and I got to display my passion and talent, I never wasted that opportunity because it was what I always dream for, soon I was popular and my dad was so pleased with me tho he never wanted me to venture into music.

5 years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://peakd.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem
