NNKAN, A UNIQUE MUSICAL REVELATION WITH CREATIVE ARTISTRY, VELVET VOICE

 

 

 

 

Oluwakemi Otekaiye Collorassi is artistically known as Nnkan Eleduwa or her stage name Nnkan which rings a very loud bell in the Nigerian entertainment sector.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nnkan is the leader of Ditoko Band and she is a lady endowed with multiple talents in the artistic entertainment space, who skilfully chants, sings, acts and dances on stage. She is an epitome of complete creative entertainment. She has been doing this since her growing up years as a child and she is still immensely talented in arts till date.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nnkan discovered very early in life that she was gifted but she did not know the channel which to pass through.

 

 

 

 

 

However, she was motivated into the arts as a child when one of her neighbours, a woman sang a beautiful song, she immediately fell in love with it. She sang the song and one other person told her she will make a music star in the future.

 

 

 

 

Fast forward, Nnkan joined a group called Black Image where she was really discovered and anchored any music that came with the stage drama whenever the group has a performance.

 

 

 

 

On her parents supporting her career at the beginning, her father was actually a good dancer who challenged the King of world beat himself, King Sunny Ade when Nnkan was just five years old. So, obviously her father was very supportive of her music career because he was always playing the likes of Comfort Omoge, KSA, Ebenezer Obey’s music and he even go further by inviting his friends to come watch his daughter Nnkan dance to Comfort Omoge or King Sunny Ade’s song where she will come out behind the curtain and danced herself to stupor because she did not see that as a performance then.

 

 

 

 

She was then called ‘kokoro’ by her admirers, majority of whom were her father’s friends who admire her dancing talents so much. Though, Nnkan lost her father at a relatively young age of around 10 to 11, he supported her talents very strongly giving her enough confidence.

 

 

 

 

Nnkan also acknowledged her father’s support after her performance at the Silverbird Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria Pageant many years back. She remembered his support after performing for a very large crowd at the event. She also acknowledged her mother’s supportive roles as well. So, her two parents have being there for her and even though they are no more but they are still there with her in spirit because she knows she can’t be where she is today without God and with them, her parents being her guiding angels, watching over her and propelling her forward.

 

 

 

 

 

Nnkan learnt music and entertainment through the process of her long years on stage. She never went to any musical school to learn. It was an inborn thing and all she had to do is stay focused in the sector to be more knowledgeable about it all. Her stay with the Black Image and being the lead vocalist really helped and she is also highly talented. She picks her key easily and begin to learn the more she performs and the more she finds herself on stage.

 

 

 

Its a process here and there, learning the keyboard and others.

Currently, Nnkan is a Nurse practitioner but she is an OND holder in Business Administration from a higher institution in Nigeria and she also did several professional courses in Marketing. She is also taking some prerequisite classes in Nursing currently. Nnkan, came from a family of five and she was in the middle of the pack having two elderly ones and two younger.

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately however, Nnkan is the only living soul of her family generation and automatically became mother to all the children left behind by her late siblings. One of those children is graduating from the University while the others are doing great in their own academic rights. Like I said earlier, her father influenced her into singing though, she has this natural instinct and passion for singing in her and also her artistic director, Paul Uwagbae who was also the artistic director of Black Image then, for more than 20 years ago, he has always been encouraging Nnkan alongside the CEO of Black Image then. “So, I can only say that my dad encouraged me a lot and with the fact that music is an inborn thing with me, I have always loved to sing and that is what I know how to do best. I have been in the game for years, though I have to take some break to take good care of the kids my siblings left behind. I took over this responsibilities over a decade ago so that they can be well structured.” She was quoted as saying.

 

 

 

 

If Nnkan is not into music today, she would have been a medical doctor which her father had planned for her to be right from her childhood, so, she would have been in the medical line as a nurse if not for music.

 

 

 

 

Nnkan is a beautifully married lady who has quite a lot of men flocking around her with some of them opting for a relationship, but as a married lady, she knows her boundary with them and she maintains an artiste/fan relationship with everyone of them.

 

 

 

 

For her, a star must know how to manage anyone that comes around her, Nnkan has done one album produced by Kayode Samuel way back, Music of Our Ancestors and the next one coming out soon is called Broda.

 

 

 

 

Broda is a song that ministered a lot to Nnkan, inspired by when she was going through a process of healing after a surgery and the part that her husband did really means a lot to her and she decided to did that song written by Baba T who said she is the only one that can give a good voice to that song. So, she has done one album and four singles. ‘Music of our Ancestors’ produced by Kayode Samuel in 2005 was her first album, her first single was ‘Revolution’ and the second one was ‘Get More’ which she didn’t release until after 11 years, that was after ensuring she took good care of her siblings’ children and make sure that they can stand on their own. Get More was actually a gospel song she did during a convention themed with the same name and had great impacts on the people. Next was ‘Mr. DJ’ and after that is the latest one ‘Broda’. Its a song that is dedicated to all men and its going to be released on father’s day. Nnkan realized that the only musician that appreciates men is Luther Vandross. She sees her husband as her brother, as her partner, gist partner and indeed, partner in everything. She also sees him as a father figure who advises her and she listens to him, so she dedicates the song to all wonderful men outside there.

 

 

 

 

Men who stood by somebody they love, somebody they cherish. So, for now my husband influenced me because after we got married, he was the one that propelled me that the world wants to hear my music and that is why we had to go back to the studio and he encouraged me to release ‘Get More’ which I have done a long time, then he pushed me again to do ‘Mr. DJ’ and now he is pushing me again to do another one. So, he’s really influencing me into getting back to my shape and into my musical career back and that is why they say, get married to the right person. So, I will say am very grateful to him because he influenced me to getting back to music.

How Good Music Will Help You To Become Known as an Artist Says Tmaq

 

A&R Guru Makinde Babatunde Qudus popular known as Tmaq has revealed what artiste needs to be known.

Tmaq said more than just skills is needed to break out as an artist in the continuously changing music industry, great music that really connects with listeners is also necessary. I can say with confidence that excellent music is the foundation of an artist’s success, I have spent years navigating the complexities of the music industry.

Here are some of the reason :

Authenticity is the foundation of good music. Audiences are hungry for authenticity and uniqueness. Music that is authentic to your feelings, experiences, and distinct viewpoint connects deeply with listeners. Your genuineness distinguishes you from the myriad artists who might be following fads or imitating popular styles.

Music has the ability to arouse feelings and produce enduring memories. Excellent music has an emotional resonance that stays with the listener. Whether it’s happiness, sorrow, love, or rage, expressing these feelings via your music can build a devoted following. People are more inclined to support you and spread the word if they relate to and are moved by your music.

The caliber of your music creation is crucial in the current digital era. In a pool of poor recordings, tunes that are clear, crisp, and well-produced stand out. Investing in a top-notch production shows off your professionalism and commitment to the industry while also improving the listening experience. To make sure your music is well-produced and musically appealing, work with talented sound engineers and producers.

A catchy melody or an impactful line might be what makes a song a hit. It’s critical to write meaningful lyrics and memorable hooks that stay in the listener’s head. Easy-to-remember melodies and lyrics that either tell a gripping tale or make a sympathetic point are hallmarks of good music. This combination has the power to take a song viral and grab the interest of music business insiders as well as fans.

Good music demands constant work and development; it cannot be produced in a single sitting. High-caliber music releases on a regular basis keep listeners interested and create hype for your upcoming endeavors. Don’t be scared to change and play around with your sound at the same time. Developing as an artist helps you stay current in a cutthroat market by keeping your music fascinating and new.

Your brand as an artist is inextricably linked to your music. A strong brand identity is established and reinforced by good music. Whether your music is renowned for its inventive production, distinctive voice, or skill with words, it should always represent and bolster your brand. Fans and industry insiders find you distinctive and recognizable when you have a strong brand that is supported by excellent music.

Music journalists, record labels, producers, and other industry professionals are drawn to great music. When your music is unique, it can lead to a number of options, such as joint ventures, record agreements, and media attention. Gaining notoriety in your field can greatly advance your career by giving you access to areas that will increase your influence and reach.

To sum up, a musician’s career is based on the quality of their music. It is the component that wins people over, commands attention, and leaves a lasting effect. To make your music stand out in a competitive market, as an artist, you should concentrate on emotional resonance, consistency, production quality, distinctive melodies, authenticity, and brand building. Keep in mind that excellent music speaks for itself and creates the foundation for a fruitful and influential career.

Tmaq, whose real name is Makinde Babatunde Qudus, is a well-known music A&R guru with years of experience in the business. He has collaborated with several musicians, assisting them in refining their sound and realizing their aspirations. He is the founder of tmaqtalk.com
