Music as it is have become one of the most precious thing a man can ever ask for. As they said; “Good music heals the soul.” and surely, it really does.
As time begins to unfold, generations passing by, innovation and more advanced/better way of expressing things, music have far gone through many ways in which people showcases it.
If we go back to time we are sure of not hearing things like Music Genres; which are the Hip Hop, Blues, Reggae, Juju, Afro Pop and so many others.
Moreover, these music genres has indeed make music more beautiful especially when it’s being showcase in videos, displaying various arts as well as dancing which I would say is the wife of music.
With the innovations we have now, music videos have been widely and more preferred to just mere audio.
Most music artists, if not all have really taken these platforms as a major means in which they showcase their new music video. Also gaining viewers from around the world as well as popularity for having the more views on their video.
YouTube being the most popular and used platform which gives great benefits; like allowing users to create channels for sharing their videos, ability for users to also subscribe to these channels, like & dislike a video and also share their point of view by giving users the opportunity to comment on these videos.
Nowadays, gaining popularity on social media has now become a great thing in humans especially for celebrities (music artists), who see this as a medium to standout from their co-artists.
