SPOTLIGHT: FROM OAP TO THE MIC, STORY OF MEDIA GURU RICKSLYN ADVENTURE INTO MUSIC
There’s no limit to one’s abilities. If it can be dreamed, it is doable. All these years Liberian audiences know Rickslyn Myers as an ON AIR PERSONALITY (OAP) , few would see her cross carpeting into another career after carving a niche for herself in that field, but just like that she got on LAST KISS, one of Bucky Raw’s record breaking tracks on the album. CS2 went NO.1 on iTunes world Music chart, a feat no Liberian Artist(s) had yet achieved.
All praises and dues were paid to Bucky Raw but no one took noticed on his awesome Producer Lil Jay, he produced a record breaking Album in a genre World music. With Rickslyn Myers, it was a first of her musical sojourn that should make or break her aspirations of being a songstress. She did not let herself and her fans down, she did handled it like a pro even when it was her first time.
Just a handful acknowledged Rickslyn’s input though,which is surprising. On the record She didn’t seem fazed. Her timing, vocals, deliveries were first class. It was a big deal when Wizkid got featured in Drake’s one dance, credits were duly given to Drake, DJ Maphrosa, Wizkid and everyone that worked on that record. In Nigeria you would think Wizkid wrote and sang mist part of the song, wizkid did not even appeared in the video but the support never stopped coming, he was being acknowledged in every nooks and crannies of Nigeria and by Nigerians worldwide.
That’s the kind of support we need for one another. We should celebrate and acknowledge Rickslyn for playing her part in taking CS2 to No.1 worldwide. The girl has a brighter future in the game. Multi talented, she got me what else is in store for us. Congratulations Rickslyn
