I First trained For Eight Months Before I Started Singing. – Singer Kapa Cat
Written by Derrick Asaba on May 10, 2021
Music is not just a plaything that one can just handle with no care. Even, venturing into it needs one to first, before all know the ins and outs of the industry — building a brand, dealing with differing situations and a whole range of issues.
Singer Catherine Tumusiime Atwooki alias Kapa Cat revealed to 97.7 Record FM that before she professionally started doing music, she went under an eight-month’s training despite the fact that she grew up a music lover.
“My professional career started when I met Tuff music management in March 2018. I used March to November for training to become an artist because there is to like something but you don’t know how to be that. Many look at music as just going to studio and releasing a song. It never works out that way and that’s why some people succeed in something and others don’t. Everything you earn from, you work for it,” she explained.
She went on to say that like in any career, training throws light in one’s eyes that flashes into their future and gives them prior knowledge on how to deal with dynamic situations.
“For any career, it’s good you train and get to know where you are heading and what you are going to do. Because most importantly, music is not wholly about singing and making videos — It comes with your personality, branding, character, and how you handle a range of issues. This career’s stardom comes with some big pressure. If you never were trained, you end up doing one hit song and disappear,” she further dissected.
Kapa says One needs to be such a networker in that by the time their music gets to people’s eyes and ears, there is a strong team behind to lift it up. As she says,
“Before I started giving out my songs, almost every media personality was a friend to me already.” This needs to be emulated.
