Read his story below…
Let me tell you a little story. Many years ago, this is before I ‘blew up’ before I became successful, before my first record dropped, I was still a struggling artiste coming up and there was this show in the United States. At the show, there was a headline artiste who was at the height of his fame, an old school artiste who had kind of passed his moment of fame and an upcoming artiste who was just starting out.
“The headline artiste was obviously closing the show. The upcoming artiste was the one to open the show and he had about ten minutes on stage. The old school artiste had a few more minutes than the upcoming guy. Obviously, there was a difference between where this headline artiste was in his career and these other two guys. The show went on and it was an amazing show. Most people in the crowd came to see the headline artiste.
“At the after-party, there was a VIP section. In the VIP section a lot of the handlers, organizers, promoters, had made this separation and distinction in such a way that the headline artiste stayed somewhere massive, while the upcoming artiste and the old school guy were asked to stand on the edge somewhere.
When the headline artiste saw what was happening; when he saw the difference in treatment, he said ‘no’. He invited them all to join him and sit next to him. The headline artiste humbled himself and told them to exalt the other guys because they are all artistes. We are all the same and we all deserve the same treatment.”
