My music platform ‘The Song Key’ is no longer in use

Some business news to share. A few months back I converted my old songwriting platform (Hitsheets) into a new one, called The Song Key. The plan was simple: Show the key of any song that came on the radio. Although it's a great idea, I didn't have time to realize it. That's because my time is spent running Unstripped Voice and trying to get my tech/jobs platform Dubata off the ground. Then...

The Startup Blueprint I Learned From Founders of $1 million+ Companies

In August -  October 2018, I attended Y-Combinator's Startup School, a 10-week online course that taught startup founders how to take their companies from 0 to 1 million and beyond. Of course, 1 million means $1 million in sales. The teachers in this course were other startup founders from top companies in their field, such as Mixpanel, Initialized, and more. Y-Combinator has taught startup...

The end of Hitsheets, and the beginning of The Song Key™

Since 2007, when I became of the first (if not the first) saxophone players to post a top-10 cover on Youtube, my journey of creating sheet music for the top billboard songs was a wild one. Originally it was called VSax Sheets. Then in late 2015 I converted it into Hitsheets, the first subscription-type platform that was a "Spotify" for sheet music. To promote it, I posted the best cover...

In my own words: An explanation of why I created the Maroon 5 change petition.

If you're reading this, you probably saw that I started a change.org petition, asking Maroon 5 to pull out the 2019 Super Bowl halftime performance in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. You then likely googled my name (Vic Oyedeji) and eventually landed here. If you did that: Then what's good! Glad you made it. I won't offer too long an explanation of why I made the petition, however what I...

This book has never really been just about money. What it's really about is creating an extraordinary quality of life -- life on your own terms. - Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game, pg 576 That quote above pretty much seals what this book was trying to convey to its readers. From the outset, one wouldn't know what to make of Tony Robbins 2014 book titled Money: Master The Game. Maybe it was...

The Weekend I Jumped The Broom & Married My Wife … (w/ Personal Video Clips)

Due to one's busy lifestyle, it's rare to take some time to look and reflect back on important milestones & moments that lead you to where you are at today.  You always tell yourself "I'll reflect on it tomorrow" but tomorrow leads to the next tomorrow, then the next week, next month...and next thing you know many months, maybe years pass by and you don't have a moment to look back and...

Looking Back: Why I Retired Playing The Saxophone Last Year

Before I get started, let me just address the elephant(s) in the room: I no longer go by "Mr. V-Sax". I no longer play the saxophone. I no longer have a recording studio, meaning I no longer record, produce, mix artists songs. I have no desire to go back to do any of the above mentioned. I could just end my post with that, and it will be all good.  But if you wondering how did I get to this...
