Music psyience: we are optimistic covid-19 will soon be a thing of the past.

Covid-19 Patient In Isolation 

In Music psyience we are optimistic that the corona-virus pandemic would be a thing of the past in no distant time. We encourage you to take advantage of this free period to restructure your pattern towards music especially if you are within the category were we didn't observe originality. Do your best to comply to the guideline below even if you are not based in the tropics.

You may be infected with Corona virus but the possibility of death from it is not significant for people living in the tropical regions. The virus needs a cold environment to thrive and unleash its harms, that is why the lower respiratory tract determines the casualty for this virus.

Why did the Italian man that brought the virus to Nigeria survive? It has to do with temperature. He was admitted in a very heated room. He even complained of serious heat, got depressed (combination of non- conducive  environment, ill-health, and separation from his family).

Why did the foreigner from UK die? He came to Nigeria, stayed in a hotel for 2 weeks in Ibadan- he was constantly under air conditioner(this made his condition worse).Temperature is the same reason why the Whites die from FLU, whereas people in the tropical regions hardly die from flu. How many people in the tropical region receive flu vaccine?

Babies in the tropical regions do have flu, but they hardly die from it not to talk of the adults.

So, what should we do constantly during this period apart from; social distance, hand washing, avoiding overcrowding, doing away with hank shake and self-isolation if you have symptoms?

The following suggestions would make you stay above the virus:

Hot water bath (allow the water to run down from your head downwards- for men and women that cut their hair. For women with hair-do, allow the hot water to touch your face, or better still, cut your hair during this period- it is a limited period.

Hot water compress of your nose(soak a napkin/cloth inside hot water and press it on your nose 2-3 times in a day).

Drink hot water for now (limit your cold drinks).

Eat your food when it is hot for now.

Do steam inhalation preferably with menthol containing balms

 Vicks/Moko/osteo inhaler 3-4 times in a day(more frequent if you are exposed to someone who sneezed).

Eat ginger

Take peppery foods (If you are an ulcer patient and you want to do this- consult your doctor).

 Do away with air conditioner for now(car, home, hotel).

Eat healthy foods with vitamin C to boost your immunity.

Strategy Series

 Strategy For A Sustainable Music Career   Strategy for sustainable music career             Introduction   It's a general notion that the sign of a successful music artist begins by attaining that height of being recognised as a  celebrity in the entertainment industry in this case music, despite the fact that it doesn't happen easily. It takes lot of hard work, consistency, dedication, inline with having a strategy to carry a uniqueness at a sustainable paste. The uniqueness which eventually becomes the identity of the celebrity as well perceived as his/her brand, contributes immensely as part of weapon of influence on the audience/fans across borders. So many factors fuels this very influence, ranging from the choice of lyrics, especially the one built with invented words and rhymes, style of rendering, relevance of the song to situation on ground and lot more. I as well want to state here categorically that there are celebrities and there are popular music artists. By popu

Personal Development Series (Part Three): Break Time ( Palliative From A Guest Writer)

The Worth Of The Palliative (In billions)   Break Time ( Palliative From A Guest Writer)  In the ongoing personal development series we examined the structure of personal development in respect to music artists in  part one  ,  in  part two we addressed the limitations and excesses associateed with the music artist as a human resource.  Before we jump to part three we find it worthy to share palliative delivered to us from a guest writer. The term palliative especially in today's pandemic which we all find our selves is not only attractive but seductive as well. In short term it connotes relief materials possibly cash through online transfer or physical disbursement, perhaps food stuff and their likes. In a very similar way we received a relief material, a resource enriched with intelligence gathering, good enough to give directions towards the components of music which is appealing to the audience.  Going through the resource indebtly one would rea

The phlegmatic artists generally have a slow approach towards every music strategy. Basically they are least in self motivation and are usually at the receiving end of what others felt could be appropriate for them.  They are reserved in nature and find it difficult to share thoughts, b
