Story with a moral
Alrite u asked for it mmax for sending me he got 10 platinum records compared to David's one email. Oso when I said they were not rivals, I meant in music not album sales.
Ok, going to tell u a story abt King Solomon, 2 women and a baby. Both women claimed the baby was hers, so King Solomon suggested cutting the baby into half to share. One woman agreed and was pleased the other woman will not get the baby alive. The other woman at once cried out dat she will give up the baby, only plse dun kill it, and so revealed herself to be the real mother. A very simple story abt justice, right and wrong.
I am alot like David who believes right is right and wrong is wrong, & I get real annoyed when someone is doing wrong to someone else for no other reason than he dun want dat someone else to have the 'baby'.
Ok he alredi released his album & got his No 1, sales, awards, concerts, etc, but he is not satisfied. So he cynically released his live concert cd on the SAME DAY as the singer/composer he is always compared to. It dun matter when he released his live cd as it will not affect sales nor his income as the concerts has alredi earned him a bundle. So the only reason he released the live cd is to create an impact on the other singer/composer, to steal his thunder so he will not be able to have the baby (No 1 status). & for good measure, he even released his live concert vcd & dvd around the same time.
But the singer/composer actually did quite well so what did he do? He got the caucasian head of the record company he hasn't even signed a contract with to award him a TEN platinum records plaque in front of an international press. So does dat mean he sold in excess of a million for 10 albums, or 10 million albums, & for which record co? Sony, hah, wouldn't even touch him wif a 10m pole. Then he claimed to sell a million but would dat be the combined sales of his live cd, vcd & dvd?
Its all so deliberate & cyncial just to claim the No 1 spot, the 'baby'. Oso plse dun whine & tell me dat it not his fault, not his doing but his co. He is 26, a superstar, cocky & u want me to believe he will be forced to do sumthing he is not willing to do.
David has never wanted to be No 1, of course he wants his album to do well but its nvr for the status but dat his music is still being appreciated. He has said dat a 'healthy' market' should be able to accommdate all kinda albums. In fact he would rather lose the 'baby', the No 1 status, and haf a healthy market dat is fair to consumers than killed it with the sort of unethical, underhanded methods practised by other singers. So David is the real deal by King Solomon standards & mine.
Just treat it as a fairytale with a moral.
