Nigerian singer and songwriter, Timi Dakolo has urged beginners not to compare their efforts to another person’s 10 years of experience.
He stated that they should give themselves time to grow and learn because they will mess up a lot at the beginning but struggling is part of success.
The singer tweeted: “Just so you know,nobody started really really good. We learnt on the job .Your beginnings shouldn’t be compared to someone’s 10 years of experience.That’s so unfair to what you are building. Give yourself time to grow.”
He added on Instagram: ” The truth is that, you are going to mess up a lot at the beginning. Flunk at your first try. Your first work will look like nothing you have in mind. That’s ok.
“We all didn’t get it right at first, it is possible the people you admire now were worse than you at the beginning. That part wasn’t just shown to you. So it’s ok if you are struggling at first,it’s part of the process.
“Nobody was really good at the beginning.”
