REMINISCE WRITES A SMART LETTER TO FANS
Sometimes, artistes are faced with huge opportunities, but get stuck on how to use those opportunities. By opportunities, I mean, times, when fans or the industry want to listen to you, away from your music. The opportunities can also be about what action an artiste can pull off, when the attention is huge. I don’t know if I’m making any sense, but I feel that this letter by Reminisce is more about taking advantage of an opportunity than, just sharing emotions. It is a smart move!
This is one thing, a lot of artistes would never think of. This letter is short, but the message is heavy. It hits you, even if you claim not to be a fan of this talented and blessed artiste.
We at the Jarmzone, appreciate Reminisce or this letter and wish him the best as his career climbs to the next level.
Read the letter below.
To The Fans
2014 was a dope year for me and I want to thank you for taking this journey with me. This is the life I dreamt of, this is the path I chose. All my life all I wanted was to speak through my music and give my fans something to cherish; a timeless treasure to hold dear. If anyone told me I would be this massive in 2008 while I was leaving home to pursue my dreams, I would never have imagined it. But thank God, here we are today.
We pushed over 1million copies of the Alaga Ibile album, and closed the year with a dope endorsement from the wonderful people at Samsung. Our hard work paid – we got recognised by Time Magazine. My life is beautiful and I have you to thank for it. There have been low points, but I can assure you I don’t quit. I’m working harder everyday, building and pushing, knowing it’s only a matter of time till victory is firmly in my grasp.
The Ibile Army is a growing movement and today, we have Sojay, The Voice, signed on. The young man’s talent and work ethic amaze me every single time, and I urge you to show him the same support and love you have shown me.
By God’s grace, 2015 will see us exceed everything we have done. It has begun with a massive endorsement – Today, I am #AlagaOrijin – The Orijinal of Orijinals. My 3rd studio album – BABA HAFUSA, will change everything.
Remember, you have one life, give it everything you’ve got. Success will forever be the best revenge.
