Day 15: The November Happiness Challenge 2021

It’s day 15. Wow!

Thank you to everyone who has stayed with me so far. Your comments and shares encourage me to keep writing, and I promise you that we’d keep having this challenge every year as long as God wills it. Amin.

I used to love singing so much. I still do, but not as much. I remember I once thought I’d build a career in it but it got halted because I didn’t know what genre I would go for. Would I sing Islamic songs? r n b? Fuji? Haha. I just wanted to sing and be on the stage while at it. I guess I was also gingered because everyone who heard me sing kept saying I had a fantastic voice and the world needed to hear me. But you see the thing with people, if I release an album now, who knows if it’s just myself and family members who would buy it?

In secondary school, I led the cultural group for years till I left. I even did a stint with the school choir despite my religion, that’s how much I loved to sing. I would sing at the top of my voice and feel like an actual celebrity because of the way everyone listened and clapped for me. Maybe it was an exaggeration, maybe it was just them rooting for their school mate but who cares? I lived that celebrity life fully!

Currently, I only sing while I’m in the kitchen or doing a chore because it is when I can listen to myself and enjoy the chore while at it. Lol. They say singing is therapeutic too, I guess I agree.

Today, I’ll be singing to you lovely people, individually. So, if you are interested, just send me a message and request for a particular song of choice. If I know it, I’ll sing it for you and if not, we’d choose another that I can sing. You’d accept it that way because one gets rusty when there isn’t Constant practice . ( I’m just letting you know that you shouldn’t make your expectations too high o, ehn ehn) . I’m making you smile today, with my voice. Let’s do it.

Look at me, being pretty effortlessly. ( if I don’t hype myself, who will?)

I’ll be back. OBA

    Yes! Yes!! I can attest to the fact that you have an amazing voice. You sent me a voice note singing the popular “we wish you a merry Christmas “ or “happy birthday” song once and I was pleasantly surprised.
