I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell stories. On the one hand, we can sugarcoat it and make it look all nice and sweet the way they do in the media and entertainment industries, where nothing is too messed up that can't be fixed, or where an average artist is hyped beyond measure and painted as beautiful and talented but in reality they are just average. On the other hand, we can choose to give little attention to real talents, associate all sorts of negativity into their stories, or probably underrate them just because they come from a lowly place. Whatever choice we make, a story will always be a story and people will listen to it regardless of how it is told, and that brings me to my point - if the stories we tell are for the public, then shouldn't we be worried about how they (the public) perceive them and understand them? Here's an unpopular opinion - we can tell them exactly the way they are, regardless of who is involved or who should be involved. The story about one of Nigeria's Afro Pop singers, Kizz Daniel, has been one of a debate since he came into limelight in 2015. While many believe that he is a fine young man with a lot of talent, they are yet to come to terms with the fact that he is good enough and probably the best thing to happen to Africa in recent years. Normally, a person's worth and value is measured through their works and not through a beautiful picture so painted by the media. While Kizz Daniel is not yet the king of African music (which he should already have been), he does make a strong case with his work and artistry. The countless debates on and off social media as to who should truly be crowned with that title have all but proved useless in many cases after the result swung in favor of an artist with the highest buzz in that year, and that can be attributed to the fact that there is power in the way stories are told. So again, what is the best way to tell a story and get it right?
