Whatever you are doing, who you doing it for?

Writing this articles is getting easier by the day. Once I open my word document I don’t close it without something of value for you to learn. Today’s topic is who you do it for? And the question I found on face book from a poet complaining that’s people don’t take his masterpieces seriously they don’t see the substance of his poems. I want to broaden this question to a bigger scale of everyday people. To parents we know then length we could go to take care and protect our kids and at the end of the day we lose objectivity of our actions and instead sacrifice all our lives for a cause that’s doesn’t show any result. I want to talk to musicians as well we no different from poets and the comment I agreed to about this topic do what’s ever you do for yourself 1st then the next person

Not having your day planned is a handicap.

take control
  1. Prioritizing family

We all know this one and it’s a pity I lost my kid before he was born, but I can tell you I was already protective of him. So what’s I would’ve done to prevent this from happening? nothing would be a wrong answer ,its what’s in doing now for the future that’s is ahead of me that’s will determine how birth of that’s kid will turns out along with the mother and of Couse health issues and anything above our power. But our lives shouldn’t be driven by this important things and lose ourselves in the process. We are the primary goals in life and anything we do should follow that’s sequence and if you are a kid reading this as soon as your eyes open see how you can better yourself ,because your mother and father are already old and they did all they could with you. If you constantly do things you don’t like just to impress your parents you will miss your mark in life and regrets not trying things that’s you really believed in. Always give your parents advice a thought and then picture the life that’s you want if its not in accordance politely decline but if your parents are your role model and they had done well for their lives do yourself a favor and take their advice and the comfort of support that’s will come with it.

Who you doing it for?

2. Fans and believers

I don’t know how fans ,have our best interest in their hearts but all I know is people I follow are already successful and if I can be successful as well then their mission would’ve come true. And the ultimate goal will meeting them one day and really explain to them what’s helped me to everything they teach and how people should receive the content cause I was once on the other side. I want to be successful for myself 1st then impress my mentors meaning all my guiding lights are the right ones. But as the follower of their content I cannot tell them what’s I need them to teach me because they know how syllabus go. Now artists and other creative makes a mistake of asking fans and believers what type of song they should release. Look when you started what’s you do you didn’t ask anyone and again after you had some supporters you didn’t try to quite because you saw that’s this works, why ask them now while you are already on the lead.

Let’s take a church example people come to church and agree to that’s belief, butwhat’s I see to some churches keep on trying to change and make people accept god over and over.

3. For the good of all

Some of us have ambitious missions in life and I have found mine recently. Others do it for human kind and other for a cause. While all this is good lot of things can side track you and you message get lost in translation ,it will be better though if most people have this  but nature didn’t build us like that’s and even in ancient history people were divided to categories and enjoys life differently and that’s still the thing. All I can suggest here have this cause if it can fulfill something that’s you angry about in a society or maybe overly passionate about. If for not this reasons once a third party come in to play on catastrophic event interfere you will give up , while if you have some sort of a drive you will overcome all the temptations and adversities.

Mr. Nelson Mandela former SA president is famous for not intervening to other countries politics, and that’s why he became a global icon he kept his views to himself and was not swayed by political analysts and reports. With that’s said you can see something that’s is meant to pull you out of your tracks and avoid it cause whatever you are doing is bigger than you even your ego should be kept silence.

People you follow on social media , makes the avarage of the people you spend you time with everyday.

4. I don’t know ,it’s what’s I’m supposed to do

You may be stuck in a life project that’s has no meaning. What’s define you? As a person, is it your spouse, your job or the things you have? Depending on the kind of live you want to live highly successful people they can’t even explain their job description.A person who practice law and have a real estate business can’t be a lawyer or both .So don’t try to be one thing in your life time at the same time don’t try to be everything .When dearth come people who are alive will forget the monthly plastic you use to provide every month if its stop coming. So playing a long game is important something that’s will outlive you. It’s may seems like I’m out of the subtitle but pay attention, I’m saying become duplicable and don’t be intrinsic on one thing. Here what’s I am supposed to do ,go to work and pay the bills and better my life by reading books ,start businesses and write this blog and do music and on and on. So my other answer you already know what’s you suppose to do , get a job or you already working spend time with your family like switch off the TV. Meetings shouldn’t happen when there are problems at home and gathering shouldn’t be funerals you the reader get your whole family together it’s your duty or save for it if you feel it’s going to cost. You know ideas about what’s should be happening in our lives sometimes manifests well when there is money so make it a priority that’s you try to get more than enough so you will be able to be a good influence in your life time , I’m also on that’s journey.

5. Do it for your piece of mind

If you could sleep well for the rest of your life doing, what’s you are doing would you take another thing that’s pays you well but more stressful? It’s depends, there are people who loves challenges in life and there are those who wants comfort. You can love both as well but life is more interesting if you immense on something and money needs responsibility and you not 100% comfortable if you need needs to balance checks and bank account .what’s tends to happen people spend all their money and start over every month. Personally I don’t like that’s strategy but people who are working in my culture say’s working body should be spoiled. And my answer to that’s I respond within is that’s, seeing work as a hard thing that’s after it you need to be spoilt is a first challenge. Secondly what’s if I gave those people money without working what’s could they do with it?

Having a piece of mind is also having a good mindset, I don’t want to lie it’s sometimes hard dealing with people who are different than you every day because they’re your neighbors, family members and maybe employees .You rarely see eye to eye even if you have a point .I’m not saying argue with them but spend less time with them so you will have your own piece of mind. So I have decided to put a bit of my life in this articles, today my uncle came back from clinic with my mother and I respect him so much. So there was a guys there with them and they called me and they ask this guy, is a serious mature handsome guy wears R20 sandals like this? I don’t know how to defend myself in situations like this but I’m in a mission and it’s a lockdown I really don’t have anyone to impress I’m just home minding my business and I view money different than them and they know it. This tends to make me happy because not having people paying attention to me for no reason rather than wearing expensive cloths is good. Cause that’s how envy starts and people begging to ask you for stuff , be careful this is LnM and thanks for reading I hope you took something out of today’s topic.

Focus on where your money come from

If you follow this blog/ website you should be already having my number for whatsapp 0840196532, why because if you deal with me you are bound to make money if you have anything to offer. So in this article I will explain where people should focus on to get their share in the market place ,and if you don’t know we live in the market place world and social media is a market place .For your work you market your skills and get hired so you will get paid that’s pure trading.

So you might have a hobby like mine where you share information like this and yet don’t get paid, it doesn’t mean it will always be like that’s so that’s my disclaimer that’s if at some point in what’s you are doing you can be able to monetize just keep doing it and do whatever necessary to grow and start taking those donations and consultation services now without waste of time lets encourage why you should focus on money.


  • 1 Money is for livelihood love it and ask for it.

You spend money every day knowing or not your live costs money so if you can learn to ask for what is rightfully yours when you help people, then your parent or spouse will stop see you as a burden or someone needing to be spun filled. Waking up in the morning how do you spend your day?Can you monetize on your relationship personally I have taught my boys to charge for most of things people ask them to do, not being sent to the tuck shop but person borrowing their money ask for interest and if that’s is working well focus on it and make money, if I ask them to do some hard work that’s needs an older or outside person they are allowed to charge me so they know I’m their source of income and sometimes they can ask to do something. This apply to you as well reading this Artist or not, charge for your feature, make money out of your friends somehow for spending time with you like here at Spliff for any use of our artists we need money and Durban artists hardly use them because here rappers are broke all the time or maybe they don’t want to invest in their music and they have a bad mindset that being charged is unethical or taken for a fool, well I can say a fool is someone agreeing to help for free. Unless its charity so ask for money or you will wind up liked but broke.

Bottom Line
  • 2 You don’t get paid for being nice and agreeing to anything

Today and like every day I get stupid requests just because I have a studio some stranger rapper want to come and hang  out with me and I said no to that’s. No one is allowed to come over and chill here this is a place of work and my bedroom and most of all my class you can learn more here than simply having comfort as he called it. See I have learnt to say no to most rappers on social media because they take everyone for a fool or thinks we all think alike. I said No to a guy who wanted to do a song with me, I said the feature is R2000 and he put hands on his head and that’s really pissed me off but I closed the conversation politely because he just don’t know me even if I said its R500 ,he was not going to pay so I deal with artists all the time but I try to spend less time with them talking business because they don’t understand it and those who do we are fine.

I know that’s I’m a nice person but other people like what’s I’m doing and recognition that’s I’m getting and thinks they can just come and leverage that’s it’s not possible thanks to Makhula for emphasizing the money part in our brand because the feature or a beat you want from me took time if you don’t respect that’s you don’t respect me and I cannot respect you too then. The best way to start a conversation with people who you respect their work is greeting them tell what’s you want and the budget you have and the service you want or if you scared of saying the budget tell them when you want to do this meaning its shouldn’t be month end ,or you would’ve called during the month end and that’s way you avoid coming back to me and asking me do you remember ,That’s doesn’t work its bad because what’s ever we may have agreed to has change.


  • 3 Don’t do things that’s isn’t worth it financially or emotionally.

We know this piece is about money but if you can’t stand what’s you do to get money ,is just that’s bad ,change it not if you are lazy about it ,but if its pays the bills and you don’t have much kills then improve yourself while doing that’s job that’s pays you. For Music artists if you also a beat maker and beats make you money than songs, do beats more and promote them, If songs get you gigs, do the songs, If Maybe you have a camera and taking pictures make you money and you enjoy it, stick to it and study that’s industry so that’s you won’t be outdated as the technology improves. Learn more about your customers and engage with them.

The best investments parents can do for their kids and themselves is encourage the tuck shops at the home outside building and encourage kids imagination and if it’s going to better the situation at home, if the kid is showing the love of selling help out and get the stock loan the kid and take your initial investment so the kid will keep going, that’s focusing on the money tuck shop is a backup for jobs since anything can happen while going to work or the company itself challenges will be there thief’s and all but you will prevail.


  1. Reblogged this on LnM and commented: This one didn’t get too much attention but it has a like or so…

  • 4 Focusing on money also means saving it

I won’t talk about investments, but saving account and 31 days’ notice account is important, stop order is important and don’t do a mistake of saving all your money earlier on and thinking that’s will make you reach, saving of money is not to make riches but to have a piece of my and liquidity for emergencies as well as forself-control and confidence. Having money on the account gives you courage to face life head on and have something to live for excepts your kids but not having money as a problem but a tool to help you navigate through life.

We saw our parents go overboard with stokvels not know what’s they’re doing and it’s really not helping our community that’s much and people playing or conducting it, some steal interests for themselves and its not to save money for anything to improve the situation at home or bring more income it’s just to have more food and but more stuff and that’s why our society of South African is not prospering. I’m not just pointing fingers I know what’s I’m talking about and I’m trying to better myself and trying an antidote and people normally don’t want such cures but try I will and this is the platform I will use to share my unhappiness and ideas.

  • 5 Pension and disability money is not a great source of income.

Government’s controls the populations and they have a basis to do so, as a country we need to be more independent and responsible than taking hands out from governments. Yes others need them and some of us can start from the bottom up by ourselves and we need more of that’s .Once we start and being responsible as a society we can help government deal with community issues rather relying on them for anything as well as in tax payers’ money which is us. If anything to this source of income for kids especially which is us youth of today make kids while we not ready financially , we bonds with our kids emotionally but we cannot provide for them ,how stupid is that’s ? Why don’t we become responsible in bed use condoms and contraceptives? And limit ourselves that’s until I have certain amount in my account then I can bring someone in the world or will try but only then.

Hard as it is that’s the decision I have made , I know there is a pressure at home my parents want to be grandparents at my own expense and I cannot repeat that’s mistake that’s happened to me. And my kid shouldn’t use government money if he/ she is in my life which is my wish ,scamming to be disable and all in order to get this money is a bad strategy as well , work for your money , smart and hard then do good to yourself and others and most importantly live your life.

Other thing we as people are not aware of is this incentives can end anytime so relying on them is a huge mistake ,like now the R350 stress relief fund by govenment may around even after Corona Virus and people will forget thats they were not entitled to this money ,when they no longer want to look for a job because of this so i will suggest not to be to grateful if you are in need of this money but self check and improve your circumstances next time.

  • 6 Don’t eat the mother (principle) of your kids (income) eats the babies (Profits) from your kids (income).

The above subtitle is an metaphor , but you should be able to understand it ,Don’t sell the store to make a huge buck now and stop the monthly and daily cash , don’t sell your rental rooms and make an extra R100 000 now ,which you were going to make any way. Be disciplined and keep putting drop of rain on top of the other that’s way ,you will be using power of time and effort then quick win that’s will take you back a mile away. Keep reinvesting your money until you have more than enough.

  • 1 If you have a dope beat you won’t experience writers block.

You cannot, I repeat you cannot play a dope beat and don’t vibe with it or sing along like you watching TV no, if I send you a beat play it in a place where you can jot out some flows and ideas. When we did Wamnandi and other songs the person writes the moment he get a beat while it’s still hot and after that switch off the beat till you hit the studio and hear it fresh again. Don’t play a beat over and over again while chilling you really messing it up. That a simple strategy and before we get to the next point go down and comment how you fight this bad thing of loosing inspiration? We will interact with you and do a follow up videos on this topic.

  • 2 Picture yourself in a stage performing.

This might be the best strategy to do a hit let alone writing a song…this what’s we usually do, although this happens by mistake but we manage to pick it up. Makhula will say in stage we will be moving like this , then while I’m watching a move idea will pop up and maybe say hey that a snake dance the way you move hands back and fourth . Depending on a beat we vibing to we can say snake dance over and over adding some lyrics .You just have to embrace your creativity.

3 Don’t write every day.

Depending on a genre you don’t want to write every day, make yourself miss writing to a point when you pick up a pen it’s just flows because you just came from experiencing life. Here is another key as artists we tend to don’t know our target market, like who we do music for and why they love it which makes us fall to a trap of ever changing industry and make us want to follow the hot thing, there is nothing wrong with that. What’s we have done we focused on what’s can make people dance its can be Kwaito, House, Amapiano you name it above 100bmp tempo. But as some of you know I come from hip hop space some of you don’t know this but there is real hip hop out there that can make you dance not just move your heard or dab but we couldn’t go there because of two much complexity for SA general audience that why we have kept our style light and easy to consume but this point I’m trying to tell artists figure your

4 Have a source of inspiration.

When we all start we have a natural eager to keep writing but that end up dissipating and we need some boost to write. I remember I started by writing stories that worked infact it can still work I just saw that the way I putted them its was lame and that time Kasi rap needed real creativity. I learnt to do Kasi Rap then I learn to write in syllables which 80% of artists cant because its requires lot of practice and understanding of how words can rhyme without closing at a certain point but catch a fan of guard the way you hold breadth and with this skill alone I always kill a crowd and that made me feel good but I didn’t make money so I had to stop for more about that check out our other video called why artists don’t make money. It’s not that they cannot write but yourl see why and tell us if you disagree cause we trying to have a open discussion here loll we not ainstan of music or Edison of it we regular soon to be superstar musicians who are fascinated by industry as a whole. Back to the point, watch a movie to get inspired you don’t have to finish it , read a dope book finish it ,look at your favorite artist and tell yourself in a positive way I want to be in that position then switch off all that and take a pen and write .Avoid listening to much of the music you are doing get inspired not influenced that way you will be original.

  • 5 Don’t write create songs.

What’s do we mean listen if you really want to be a big artist you need to be able to do this , Abdu’s creates Punch lines he doesn’t use or modify others like most artists do , Makhula has that too he is so original that I asked him how do you get this flows of yours cause in Kwaito  many replicate Mampintsha and even though its not something that is talked about its really hurts the industry , English rappers copy Nasty c or someone from USA .so if you create from the scratch people will get used to your scratch and actually supports you until you have your mini you’s as well loll. You guys are so amazing the feedback we are getting ever since we started this content we like to take this time and say thank you. I see others want us to come to their shows and ask us how much we charge for a event before this episode end we going to leave our manager number Nkule please strictly music related business..or send us an email at ulwaznomakhula@gmail.com… Now lets give you that bonus shall we?

  • 6 Don’t give up.

In fact in everything you trying to do don’t give up that easily and say you will try tomorrow that will be your bad habit and its will kill your career , get away from friends and any distructions and try to avoid writing at the studio you waste everybodys time.Once you told yourself you will write get to it , Makhula find it easy to write as this genre is all he knows but sometimes he had those days where I need to chip in and help. In  Most cases ULwaz has the problem of writing now lets me make some other point for me its not that I ddnt write but its trusting what’s I have wrote that was a real challenge when I started qgom but my friends encouraged me and I was always on the second verse because of that , So you need that encouragement as well from your producer or your  group because this is for all your best interest and if   someone bites a mainstream artist tell him / her to stop because you will all look like fraud.

Once again thanks for tuning in we will see you on the next article. As we have putted it for you ,or go to write that song and thank us later . #LnM we out…
