Bauchi Number 1 artist and Arewa top shot B.O.C Madaki shares inspiring message to end the year


In 2003,While I Was Still In High School(SSS One),I Positively Got Influenced By My Friend DAURE YANKOLI a.k.a SLASH DEE. God Used Him To Make Me Discover What I've Got Inside Of Me.

Started When There Were Just Two Studios In The Whole Of Bauchi(Baushe Media And Kingdom Record). Then,We Were Being Charged N250 Per Piano Instrumental Production By PASTOR AMOS,A Then Pastor With WORD OF LIFE Church In Yelwa Bauchi,We Were There Since The Era Of FLOPPY DISK(Diskette).We Were Just Live Performing Artists,Then Later Evolved Into Studio Recording Artists In Late 2005 And That Was How We Met SLIM BEE,ANDY BATURE,PRINCE DANIEL, MARTINS IBRAHIM, DELE CHOLL ISHOLA, RICHARD BATURE, TAWAR TITUS,etc. They All Worked At KINGDOM RECORDING STUDIO In Bauchi And That Was Where The Journey Of Being A Recording Artist Started.

I Left My Parents House In 2003 Not Because I Was Disowned But Because I Wanted To Be Closer To My Peers Whom We Share Similar Goals. I Have Always Had Freedom But I Never Misused It. I Have Been On The Streets Ever Since Then.The Street Taught Me A Lot Of Things,It Exposed Me To More 'Good' Than 'Bad'.

In December 2010,I Left For Lagos In The Name Of Music But Came Back To The North After Recording Just A Song And Given One Radio Interview Within Five Months Of Stay,That Was Very Unusual Of Me At Then Because I Was Already Recording At Least Ten(Songs) Yearly While In Bauchi.

Record Deal Never Came By But I Kept On.Mom Was Like "You're Not Getting Younger Anymore And This Your Music Is Not Being Fruitful.Please Go Get A Job Son,That Would Do You Better.".And I Was Like "Mom,I Know It's Gonna Be Very Challenging To Find My Way Through This But In As Much As It Is Possible To Breakthrough I Won't Stop.I Don't Mean To Disrespect You Mom,All I Need Is Your Prayers And Blessings,I Don't Even Need Your Financial Support." Ever Since Then,Mom Have Always Been Praying For Me To Excel In This Game Called Music,She Blesses Me All The Time.

Just A Few People Believed In My Dreams And Vision. The "If You Want To Make It In Music,Leave BAUCHI And Go To LAGOS.You Can't Make It When You're In Your Comfort Zone" Had Hit My Eardrums For At Least 50 Times. But I Have Always Believed 'Comfort Zone' Is A State Of Mind,Not A Geographical Location.

Olamide Is An Indegenous Lagos Rapper And That's Where He Made It.What Makes You Feel You Can't Do It From Anywhere.

Bauchi Is Not My Comfort Zone But Rather The Cinema Where I Watch Life Movies Prior To Their Premier. It Is Where I Walk Freely On The Streets To Get Inspired By What I See Around Me. My Music Is The Depiction Of All The Lessons I Learn As Time Unfolds The Most Puzzled Mysteries About Life And Nature.

I Have Travelled 16 Out Of The 19 Northern States All In The Name Of Music.

I Have Two Major Projects(NO ENGLISH Mixtape In 2015 and SORRY,PLEASE,THANKS EP In 2016) After Releasing Hundreds Of Single Songs.

I Have Toured Seven(7) States(Plateau,Kano,Kaduna,Gombe,Adamawa,Taraba,Nasarawa) + Bauchi For My NO ENGLISH MIXTAPE Between February And October 2016.I‎ Have Never Had Even A 'One Naira' Monetary Gain During All The Tours But I Never Got Discouraged.

Slept By The Roadside With My Body Exposed To Mosquitos,Slept On A Chair Inside Cold,Slept Famished For 24hrs Severally,Rocked One Pair Of Trousers For 9 Consecutive Shows,etc All Within This Year But Despite All That,This Year Has Been My Most Successful Year So Far.

This Year I Got The Highest Radio Interviews,This Year I Got The Highest Airplay,This Year I Travelled More Than Any Year Else,This Year I Did My Highest Number Of Collaborations,This Year I Met More Great Minds Than Ever,This Year I Didn't‎ Fall Sick,This Year My Son Got Scholarship To Study For Free Till He Finish His Primary Education,This Year My Son Bagged His Best Result So Far( 8 A(s),2 B(s),1 C And 1 E),This Year I Celebrated Christmas Not As A Broke Fellow Anymore,This Year I Got 22k Followers On Instagram,This Year I Got 10k Likes On My Facebook Fan Page,This Year I Added 4k Followers On Twitter,This Year Reasonable Price Tag Got Attached To My Name,This Year I Discovered Myself,This Year Taught Me To Be Self-Reliant, This Year Taught Me Being Real Is Putting God First And Taking Care Of Family If There's A Way.

I Told My Mom I Would Never Go Back Home The Same Way I Left. Mom Called Me Recently And Said "Son,I Really Thank God For Blessing Me With A Child Like You,You Are Finally A Man.How I Wish Your Late Sisters(Martha & Mary) Were Here To See What You Have Become.All You Needed Was My Blessings And Prayers,They Are Yours Forever.Don't Slow Down,Just Accelerate The Pace And Your Dreams Would Finally Become True."

My Family Had The Worst Story In The Neighborhood, At A Point We Were Tagged As Peasants.‎

I Don't Know How It Appears Before Your Very Eyes,But As For Me,It's Safe For Me To Say I Have Made It.I Only Hope To Get Better With Time.

Started Music In 2003 But Wasn't Getting Paid Till 2016. My Story Didn't Change Till After 13 Good Years.

Dear Brother/Sister,If Anybody Says You Can Never Make It Tell That Person It's A Lie.All You Need Is God,Prayers,Parental Blessings,Time And Patience.I'm A Living Proof.

The Fact That I Said I Made It Didn't Mean I Have A Plan To‎ Relax.I Just Made It To The Gate Of The 'Milky Way',Just About To Step In And Walk It.

Do Not Blame Anybody/Anything For Your Failure/Predicament,Just Stand Up And Do It Fam.

Forgive Me If My Choice Of Career Or This Post Inconvenience You In Any Way,I Don't Mean To Blow Trumpet,This Is Just My Testimony.

I Pray The Experience Grow More Knowledgeable And The Inspiration Multiplies As Each Day Passes By.

So Help Me God. Amen
