Their is one crucial aspect of art be it music, comedy literature, painting etc. That which is delivery; how you do what you do.

They say a nice cup gives a good impression even though the tea has not been tasted. We will take a look at six tactics every musician must employ to enhance his presentation ability to the audience. That which Ebira artists has none.

1. Record label
I have been with lots of Ebira artists both at home and away from home, Ebira artist are really far away from seen limelight why do you think artists like Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, Korede Bello, Reekado Banks and almighty Wizkid makes their way to stardom so rapid after their signing? We cannot build it all around the uniqueness of their music but more emphasis should he laid on their record labels. Its only in Ebiraland you will see a musician that cant afford a pencil light Toyota Camry will tell you they have a record label, maybe they thought record label can be started with just a word of mouth and no managerial skills.

2. Branding
Ebira artist are very talented, and if you are very conversant with their way of music flows delivery, you will see message deep rooted in punchlines and rhyming verses. But almost all these songs tell how rough and dark their past was. And most times we the audience get so irritated and tired of ‘story
of my life’ songs. I once overheard someone say he looks inside the gutter every time he walks by the road in case he will find any upcoming artist because they all claim to come from the gutter. We are tired of this story telling musics, they all need to brand themselves by releasing some street rap or lamba hits. they need to connect to the world, and the country is hard people needs to be happy.

3. Hyping
If you don’t hype yourself, who will? This guys needs to get more connected with social medias and the internet. they need to work on their publicity, broadcast and public awareness, its only in Ebiraland where we are artist believe in air play than internet. you dont really need to play your music on the radio even its an added advantage but how many youths are listening to radios life is now on the internet.

This site Ebiraland.com.ng is receiving nothing less than 200,000 visitors every month searching, for musics if you tell them to promote their music online they will be forming local champion with no kobo. I can assure you that non of Ebira artist have up to 5,000 followers on any social media, quote me anywhere.

4. Orderliness

You cannot run out of inspirations and songs. We know that but learn from artists like Olamide, his early days in the music industry was steamed with consistency that one wonders if he had a music bank, likewise wizkid. But these guys followed a sequential pattern. Don’t choke audience with tracks we wouldn’t even know about. One track at a time. Let us make do with one before you hit us with another. i checked some Yunique songs and trying to promote his songs but i found up to like 200 tracks which is bad i don’t really know which of them to promote.

Music is not all about quantity but quality, do one song look for money and promote it, keep your finger crossed and see how the fame comes, I’m not talking about shitty fame that wouldn’t bring anything to your table oh.

5. Maturity
I’m a fan of pretty punchlines but Ebira artists’ lyrics are somehow wack and immature. I listen to lil kesh a lot and even with his vulgarity and loose lines, he is able to capture my heart with mature lines that sometimes makes me quiver. I always marvel at his play on words and a times wonder if he was once a poet. Ebira musicians need to grow their words and blend them with audience expectation. they have been in the industry for quite sometimes now. and yet they can’t deliver something good.

6. Song writing
To be factual and realistic, most if not all of Ebira Musics’ sound to me like freestyles. Like they just played with the mic. Whoever writes this type of songs for them needs a jail term if not ‘death by hanging’. they are ruining their career with bad choruses. I think it’s high time this guy s get themselves a wonderful songwriter or collaborate with nice vocalists in the industry. The power of your song lies more within the melody, depth and delivery pattern of your chorus. One reason why ‘see you again’ by Wiz khalifa and Charlie puth remains on everyone’s playlist.

The world needs professionals, not talented immature kids like Yunique, Sharon Sonia, Tiprose, 2rich etc have claimed to be. Hard-work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard. Only if Ebira Musicians will understand what the word ‘Hard-work’ technically means.

In conclusion: I don;t add their language they sing in because in the world of music language is not actually a barrier, how many Ebira Folks understand what Sarkodie, Olamide, Phyno, or Reminisce is saying yet they like them. and if you are a musician that wants to know how to start earning with their music even without releasing album, i got you i can teach you both online and offline its not free though, that’s what i do and how i earn a living too. click here to contact me on Facebook or send email to binoosmart@gmail.com

The Ebira Concept Of Ozi-Emasu And Enebe.

credits to Yagbe-Onilu

Disclaimer: Please note that even though all my articles are based on facts (research), it is for educational uses only, I am not an herbalist as some people will put it, I am a very good Muslim but my line of work make me do research out of my own curiosities. Also please ignore all my grammatical errors, I will keep all my contents simple and concise in such a way that even an illiterate will be able to understand. I am Anebira not Americana, so try and keep up.

If you read the previous article I wrote about Onovave (Reincarnation), you will notice that this topic is somehow related to it. The similarities between this articles is that of Eva (the oracle of wisdom) that is involved, reason been that back in the times of our ancestors even they believe in God, they consult Eva through Oheva to solve every problem that arise in the community.

Ozi-Emasu could sound primitive but it’s real most especially in West Africa and mainly among our tribal folks (Anebira). Ozi-Emasu completes several life cycles with one mother. In some reality cases, the Ebiras, in one of their traditional ways of deterring Ezi-Emasu from death after reborn is deface such children, either by cutting the finger, ear, or a deep mark in the face or back or by burning them. To a great surprise most of this children when reborn will have the same marks exactly the way they were been defaced before they died.

It is believed that Ezi-Emasu plummet the fortune of their folks, and their greatest joy is to see their mother cry when they die, severally because the tears on their mothers face are valuable in the spirit of Ezi-Emasu. Emasu time in human life is short and their death mostly occurs immediately after birth and the time of their joy, like graduation or marriage.

Enebe and Ozi-Emasu are the kind of children according to the Ebira belief who make pledge concerning the duration of their life, and they reunite with their fellow members in the spirit life after death. Some traditions also confirmed that some Enebes must have married their mates and probably bore children over there (in the spirit world), by coming to the human world, they will find it difficult to get married or to have children of their own.

The Ebira beliefs that the Enebe and Emasu spirits always roam about during mid-noon, and night and the most places they can be found are T junctions, dumping grounds (Itutu), river sides, grave yards, jungles and inside trees (Iroko tree for example), and all these places are forbidden for pregnant women, if you are a Muslim you will notice that this align with the so called Jinn entering peoples body in such areas. The belief is that if pregnant woman should come in contact with them they could follow her home, and could eventually give birth to a child with Enebe or Emasu spirit. (This is a very big lesson to all women). Thank you for reading my article.

EBIRA TRADITIONAL BELIEVE ABOUT ONOVAVE (REINCARNATION)

Onovave (Reincarnation) means the new life after a biological death (the dead body begins a new life somewhere else). In Ebiraland it is believed that everyone in life reincarnated some fallen souls in their respective families that is the major reason for Eva Ozi in Ebiraland that some people still do till date, we have experience a situation whereby someone got sick abroad and was later brought back home (Okene, Kogi State. Nigeria) because of this Eva Ozi and he was healed. Some believe that depending on the person reincarnated, if the person reincarnated want to be known, they will surely disturb the person that reincarnated them and must be done through Oheva (one that consult the Oracle of wisdom). My next article will be on Eva Ozi (this is against Islam and Christianity as these two religion believe that it’s an act of Satan), please stay tuned and read this article first on Onovave…..

Note: This is for Educational purposes only, before I write any article on Ebira Online Media (www.ebiraonline.com) I either follow the fact that people wants to know that topic or it’s a topic in Ebiraland that is worth knowing for nowadays youth like myself or I write based on request from my followers and fans.
Why am I writing this article now? It’s because one of my followers ask for help on Onovave if it’s true or just another story to scare little children. The person email content below;

Yusuf Ozovehe, Wrote: Hello Yakubu Binuyaminu Adeiza of Ebira Online media I really need your help regarding Reincarnation please it’s urgent.
Please I had a brother that we don’t get along at all we are like water and fire even though I love my brother so much and care about him and I am sure he feels the same way but we have never for once get along in the house I feel very uncomfortable anytime we are around each other. What really surprise me is that my mum knew about this and she thinks it’s nothing. When I asked her why she felt at peace knowing so well her sons are not getting along? She replied with, since those that reincarnated the two of you never get along till their death (my elder brother reincarnated my grandfather while I reincarnated my grandfather’s younger brother).
Believe me bro, this has got me down ever since and I don’t know what to do, please help me out, since you are in Nigeria and things like this might not be new to you over there. Thanks in Advance…
Yusuf Ozovehe, From England.
My answers will be in two forms, 1. Ebira Traditional Believe About Onovave. 2. Islamic Believe About Onovave).

EBIRA TRADITIONAL BELIEVE ABOUT ONOVAVE.
Ebira people believed traditionally that anybody that died untimely death come back to life In the same form but different location and different tribe to complete his remaining years on earth, this Onovave topic is a broad one according to my grandfather that is putting me through, he said he has heard stories of people that died in Okene and was found 10 years later at a very small village in Yoruba land with his own family (wife and children). He decided to bring them home after so much disturb from the wife that she needs to know where he is from he brought them home but later he was nowhere to be found, he pointed to me the family that it happened to in Inoziomi and he said it was a story he heard growing up, he is not sure if it’s true, lot of people have been saying it and the family has never for once denied it.

Also after Eva Ozi has be done in Ebiraland by Oheva and the person reincarnated has been known, this is when names like Inya, Inda, Mummy, Daddy came from in Ebiraland, because they believed some fallen family members have been given birth to again. This kind of children became spoilt as they will be over pampered believing they are elders. (In Yoruba land its Babatunde or Yetunde which means Father or Mother is back again).
Please Note: I’m not saying that everyone with above name gone through the process of Eva Ozi; all I am saying is that, it started from there, ok? Some people gave such name to their children just to sweet them thanks.

ISLAMIC BELIEVE IN REINCARNATION (ONOVAVE)
Islam believed that it is possible but they are not the same person, it is the work of the devil trying to lead you astray Evil spirit take the form of your dead family member to deceive you, if you believe in it you visit the Oheva which is strictly against the law of Islam. Please be careful about this…
