Inspiration: Is Success Always Earned? A Not So Happy Friday!


Uduak Oduok Social Media Week New York CityHey AML People,

It’s a not so happy Friday for me. In one week, actually less than 24hours, my favorite label, Chocolate City,  just had one of their own pull some “Pafuka” move on social media.  I’m still trying to absorb all of it and next you know HKN is acting up. That and the fact that since we opened 2013, it has been everyone calling it quits front, back, left, right, center et al. Sheesh people! Slow your roll and let’s deal with one family crisis and drama at a time.

I would splurge on music right about now, like non-stop hours of music complete with shopping but I have work to do  which precludes such indulgence, at least for right now.

So, I’ll pray  next week is a better look for the music industry.

Check out the Ted Talk below. Along the lines of all happening this week, I think.

Have a great weekend ahead.

Stay blessed.
