• Before the pandemic struck Daddy Owen used to identify himself as an artist. Now, not so much...
• To make use of the extra time he had during the pandemic he decided to embark on different business ventures, road construction included.
Daddy Owen took to his Instagram stories to share how the pandemic changed his life.
He shared how before corona struck he used to identify himself as an artist, it was his livelihood but when the pandemic hit things seemed to go awfully sideways.
He confirms that that pushed him to look for ways to diversify himself, his skills and craft. “not to say that arts don't pay but just to look for ways to make more with myself," Part of his post read.
Owen added that to make use of the extra time he had during the period he decided to embark on different business ventures, road construction included.
adding in as much as it was challenging with some people disregarding him because he was just an artist and couldn’t really understand the business side of things it was also fun.
“My advice is to any young person more so upcoming musicians, arts is good but it's a vehicle, not a destination."
Daddy Owen wrote advising the younger generation, letting them know that in as much as the art pays people shouldn't get lost in it thinking everything revolves around the money you're making at the moment.
“Arts will open so many doors yes...but you must knock on the doors, have the knowledge,...most of us are so ignorant and surrounded by the ego of "mi ni star" nonsense! Seek advice. Maximize your potential when still young. Money will follow ideas."
