When I started music, all I knew was I wanted to sing. I just wanted my voice 2 be heard. But now, music is so much more 4 me, its more than just makin my voice heard. Its more about inspiring, elevating, uplifting, influencing, encouraging and telling different beautiful stories— Aramide (@AramideMusic) June 14, 2019
I was at a certain point in my life where everything seemed lost. I was in a state of despair, I was hopeless, unhappy, dejected and scared-scared to fail, scared I wouldn’t make it, scared my music will not be accepted. Life was beginning to feel like a nightmare in a nightmare— Aramide (@AramideMusic) June 14, 2019
I was numb-numb to emotions, numb to life. But there’s one thing about music…where words fail, music speaks. Music provokes lots of emotions and I channeled everything I felt at that point into my music.— Aramide (@AramideMusic) June 14, 2019
I’m most definitely proud of where the music has brought me, proud of the many lives it has touched, proud of the people I’ve been able to inspire and encourage through music. I’m proud of the beautiful stories I’ve been able to tell— Aramide (@AramideMusic) June 14, 2019
