5 better pattern of releasing music or anything for that’s matter

You know I am a very sensitive person ,I don’t know why but it’s because I have increased my awareness in life so I wouldn’t  allow you to come here and show me a picture of a dead person cause that’s night it will mess with my sleep cycle. But if I listen to a song with a violence nothing happen so as we touching on how many times you should release songs ,I might add that’s maybe in your location music don’t last in terms of people playing and enjoying it. But I want to give you an advice teach your fans your own manageable routine. As you can see this does not apply to musicians only, authors, business people, Arts artists and so on you can use this examples in your own work.

Old mediums of releasing music and digital content

  1. Are you a trendsetter or a trend follower / capitilizer?

We are seeing songs about #Coronavirus and #Lockdowns meaning this songs will never be classics and shows the level of creativity some artists have and them being opportunists. The negative on this is an artist does not have a substance and a real reason why people follow him/her, there is no cause or style he represents. Meaning there is no particular time to release so for us we don’t recommend this strategy.

We suggest you get out of the noise of trends and give people something else to talk about and stick to your normal schedule.

So for anticipation reasons and ability to capitalize on one song at a time. A rule of thumb is, if the song is still hot don’t interrupt it with another song, make money out of it and repeat.

Doing it for human kindDon’t know why im doing this
Ask yourself this questions.

2 How long should I wait before I release another song?

If you want to release lot of songs for your audience, release E.P or Mix tape and most preferably Album and try to make this cash cow as possible or otherwise you will be wasting your time. For a single 3 months is a best minimum , push one song for the average of this time , we see others keep releasing and its seems like they’re worried about fading away or something .We suggest you don’t worry about that’s much and try other ways to keep yourself relevant.


  • 3 You don’t need a pattern if you don’t have a budget in place.

You will disappear in a thin air if you release without a plan and there is a article dealing with this specifically. So have a budget and priorities of this is what’s I will bet on as a vehicle to push this single. It’s may be PR , Marketing and distribution or Radio Plugging and so on , I see a lot of artists making a mistake of wanting this services from unprofessional people or companies. Look you will lose money if you naïve , I don’t specialize in the above things but I can recommend some companies for you and hear me well I will be recommending not telling because the marketing campaigns might not work and I don’t want to be to blame.  


  • 4 Don’t look at other artists patterns of releasing music, focus on you.

Big Zulu releases everytime, he already has an audience which for you reading this might be something you gatta build. He’s seeing his efforts and he is really productive, releases music videos for his songs so that’s a proper strategy there. What’s about you why you will drop next week? To bother people and ask them to push you? Or to try your luck and send Dj Tira or Oskido your link? That’s strategy is overused and be careful we made a mistake as ULwaz No Makhula to send links too early ,when songs were not in great quality and while we were not visible on Google. Some artists do music because they know someone at the top and that’s can be an advantage but what’s happens after he has talked on your behalf? Can you deliver or you will ruin his reputation? that’s why you should work hard and smart to prove you are a force to be reckon with then use that’s contact and then maybe you can present your strategy in your new team, and say this is how I release music and I know there will be lot of work and gigs but let’s try to be consistence with this.

  • 5 Know you may have personal challenges that’s might prevent you from your usual routine.

This point is simply for routine so here how this work ,you work in advance and place the online release dates on line ,get some Social media apps and place the links accordingly and announce the release dates then prepare YouTube video schedules as well and the campaigns on all social medias . Others may frequently require you to authorize, you can deal with that’s when the time comes ,that’s way you will put most of the work upfront and only answer fans comment and take gigs as they come. This also means placing a face book ad earlier and promotion on twitter earlier. When something bad happen or anything needs your attention you can deal with it. Like this blogs I do them every time at home but when I post them I post them once for them to appear every day on my twitter and face book as well as instagram clearly am there without being there all the time. Now this saves me data and time.

  • 6 Anticipate the lazy times.

This one is more like the above one but in a real time work where you write and record songs. You can have a way to encourage yourself, I know for me it’s easy I make a dope beat I write for it. If its gqom it’s easier I get the beat from other producers and work on in immediately before its bores me.  So find a way to reward yourself after every session that’s way you will know the immediate pay off of your efforts. I know I don’t need any ,I just get full filled that’s I manage to hit my daily task or pattern and I have a new effective strategy rather than writing a song for one day ,I just write one verse a day and maybe I finish writing in three days. Why I do this I realized that’s my 1st verses are always way doper than second and third ones so I needed a system to balance that’s and so far it hasn’t fail me. So this system allows you to be lazy and effective at the same time, in the book I recently read they had something like this where an artist put a minimum of 25 min on a task. I saw writing a verse is different depending on its complexity and content others take longer and other are quick to finish.

I was taking a video of myself writing and time was flying and I couldn’t believe it cause I thought I value my time but why my passion waste so much of my time? , we will never know its feels right doing it and I think I’m doing important thing with my life especially for myself. On the other hand knowing this I can dedicate my time accordingly because if I spend so much doing that’s and returns are small, I know in the long run they might be huge but I need to make moves that’s will make that’s long run closer meaning I get 9-5 or something and pay for this to get to the right people who will see value and want me to come and entertain or teach with it.

Thank you for taking the time, I most appreciate improving yourself using my life experience and pit falls. If you are a artist or a business person we have a small book on amazon called Music Insider 16 pages of simply contacts you can use to get some the things done with in the music industry.

5 Reason’s why Artists don’t share information and contacts.

Angsaboni kodwa kummnandi , Hi there and welcome back to our interesting website that is slowly growing in Popularity .That’s means we are  doing something important….

Yes indeed and this is our 8th post ,just eight …this Blog is for Music artists , Aspiring Celebrities and anyone who can connect the dots because as anything Music is business so our information may be relevant to what’s you trying to do. So don’t move “follow to our blog and tell us if we are getting out of line in our comments.

In KwaZulu Natal we are seeing something interesting happening in the hip hop space people from the same township are getting deals and going mainstream. But in Qgom and Amapiano and other genre is pure mystery whose next. So why in our township we call it ukvalelana the why we hold info and contacts that we should be sharing, here are 5 points we think why.

  • 1 We gave you the knowledge before and you didn’t use it.

1st of all internet has made everything to be a plain field its either you teach yourself and make your own contacts or bother people who you make them to stop giving you information in the 1st place.

We tell people what’s we know we even doing it right now and they digest the knowledge no action because ,every time they see our moves they envy us and not in a bad way but when its comes time for them to putting the time and work and do what’s we told them they don’t.

There is this Events movement ULwaz is part of called FS Tour where we give artists the platform to perform with my other business friend Dj 2five. We tell artists come to the open mic 1st then if you did well we will put you next time they don’t come and if you put them on the line up they push the poster as if they have made it and still not come what’s do you call that mnganam?

  • 2 We feel threatened by what’s they might do with the contacts and powerful tunnels.

He might be smart and hard work me.

Maybe if I give him Dj Tiras number he will get a deal and be popular than me.

His team is dangerous they will take over if I tell them how to submit on tv.

But we all family why we are threaten by each other , you might say people does not appreciate , Ill object don’t help for praise do it for your good Karma . so that the second point syasabana.

  • 3 Artists don’t share anything because they think music is a competition.

We don’t care how you see it, that pure greedy we don’t know what’s celebs do with their success but I see great collabos which means mainstream is a great striving environment ,then what’s happening underground in SA or maybe in the world why artists find it hard to do features. I’m guilty too we think further if we will be reject by that person or maybe he’ll want money , if you see his value yourl need to pay that and I’m sure its won’t be much because he’s still struggling as well.

Advice compete with yourself and become the best version of your yesterday its might’s be said in other channels its applies here very well. Look what’s if you beat your 10 years ago hustle is isn’t that self competition .Our friendship is way strong than years ago .So Pay attention on you and define the rules of the game .push through the barrier of their are closing on us. Dj Melon once said at other conference Eyadini if oTira bekvalela try another path there are lot of paths but don’t bad mouth the big dogs of the game you will get really crushed it’s like that in every industry .in Business you can’t mess with Bill Gate and think you going to get away with it by the way I have so much respect for this people let’s move one hope you get the point.

  • 4 We think we better than one another “Ego”

WE not expert but we slowly becoming ones , the key we humble ourselves we have to in fact everyone has to course life is full of surprises. Ego is not totally a bad thing that what’s drives our ambitions but we shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves to think we are better than other people .Hes Weak or their sound is terrible, He using me all of that we need to use each other to move forward and basically let’s not look at one another as wanting to make a little cash off one another that strategy doesn’t work. From Experience ULwaz No Makhula has learnt to process their music because some other producers push money forward and deliver poor quality and that messes with what’s we trying to do. Doing things ourselves is not efficient that why we release once after every 3 months we want the best for our fans ,if we were pushed by ego we would’ve miss the process and never go anywhere . Now we trying our luck with youtube because we feel there is a need for this.

  • 5 We dont trust a person needing the contact.

So since we know each other ,you know someone’s attitude and behavior so if I give him Oskido number he’ll start by saying he got it from me then nag him no I rather not. I Our days its open as I said you get anything on the internet sometimes this people answers the inbox Makhula has talked with some serious people. He was just not ready so learn from our mistake before you reach out to someone make sure the song is master artwork is ready too. Maybe even a Music Video.  You might not trust yourself “what’s I going to say” now you see with or without contacts you don’t have a approach if you have it is a bad one.

I have learned from watching videos here that you need to be creative when trying to network with people think out of the box , send him or her a video clip with a cute baby by your side tell that baby to say my dad is only asking for one shot please, please, please .or anything yourl see. And if it happens someone trusted you with the contact and tell you don’t say you got it from him, you need to respect that and think of something to get your way. In the long run you should never forget that person while its will be good for him too to not act like you owe each other.

Now it’s that moment where we should love you and leave you. But we might have enough content for you to check out and learn more about music and how to operate within it. If you liked this episode give us a like and most importantly subscribe so one day Youtube will see us and give us what’s we deserve ,that the best way to support our channel and lastly press that notification bell…if you seeing this video elsewhere we are ULwaz No Makhula in all socials….you know the Bonus

  • 6 Artists don’t have any information they’re winging it.

I’m sure you are puzzled with this very last point but it’s true , Jayz didn’t know what’s he was doing he learn along the way that why it’s important to read books and hustle I know he claims not to be well read but I know that not true .most of artists don’t know what’s they should do even when we respect them. You should be encouraged by this point and move with a blind faith you will grown although the data will come incrementally its will add up and make the difference and eventually you will find yourself doing well than others. Other artists has managers who literally runs their life especially business life and sometimes its better to be in control as an artist than to have someone planning your whole move maybe in the later stage when the work load is too much .but earlier on learn in and out buy yourself. Don’t miss the chance to scale to deals are just that scale and yourl never starve again even if the contract is over you will still be a celebrity and it’s shouldn’t be too long to be independent again….

Thanks you very much salute.
