Welcome to another segment of ULwaz no Makhula Show where we teach artists like us whets we have applied to make our songs stand out on social media which led to having them popular around the world.
Its not whats you don’t know thats hurts you , its whats you know thats isn’t sounkown

1. Don’t waste time introducing yourselves and spoiling the show momentum.
We always ask big dogs in the game to constantly make conferences so they can tell us about this stuff. Have you ever see Black Coffee busy shouting his name before he plays no. Have you ever see Duncan saying hold it my selector Hi my name is Duncan from KwaMashu No. any big act get to work when they get on stage because they know they will do their best work and people they will ask each other who was that . Then word of mouth maybe by then they will be sourber enough to follow you on socials. This also set the bar low, imagines getting after ULwaz No Makhula and do this just Kidding but you get the point…let’s move on to.
2. Don’t start performing without knowing the arrangement of your set.
Skip , Skip , Skip while we payed to see you do your thing now you and your Dj are making us fans to lose our mojo.And the Promoter is looking at you on the VIP Section. So avoid this know your set by heart if you going to use their resident dj. Its makes you look unprofessional and when your time is over you will be mad on the host for doing his work cutting you cause you were ski skip loll.
3. Don’t play with booze on hand, or don’t perform drunken period.
Okay this one may offend a lot of people even our allies but that not our goal, our goal is to help young boys like us take action towards their talent with this tools in hand. We don’t drink but we have seen people literally drinking their career down the drain. Avoid alcohol in business settings, if you treat music as business doesn’t drink before your studio session and before your performance. I don’t know if it’s true but Ambitious Entertainment doesn’t sign you if you drink alcohol so for all of us aspiring to be signed lets choose our poisons wisely.
4. Don’t do your moves at the VIPs session (You diminishing your brand).
Be peoples person, laugh at the event, engage in conversation just don’t Dance in a place you are booked in as a respected artist. Hold your standards, behave properly don’t bother the person who invited you, quiet you passion baby of wanting to kill a crowd now…I know this points are kind of out to this segment theme but this are all things you shouldn’t do. Don’t look to bored either loll yes check your phone ,but talk to your friends while waiting to perform eating for other type of genre wouldn’t be relevant but you can by some meat and eat .we are also guilty here we don’t eat in shows but that have to change. It will make the experience more memorable R100 per person then you good to go. So the key to this point don’t be centre of unnecessary attention.
5. Don’t be late, If you early try to perform if threes an opening.
This point is all about humbling yourself , most upcoming artist may want to act like celebrities when they start to get some gigs , if there’s a time slot try sticking to it or do much better be there when there’s a gab of someone late.. Understanding the promoters frustration will work on your favor, whether your dope was amazing or not he/ she will remember you on the next show .Being late is not acceptable in any place even church so in life try to keeping track of your time always set an hour more unless you are a busy person by nature that means you will make use of your schedule as usual….

Before we love you and leave you Bonus.
6. Don’t forget to pay attention while others are on stage coz you will get in eventually.
Paying attention is cheap but most artists take it for granted, our artists here don’t have a privilege of making a sound check so, there will be surprises no matter how good the sound is. Look few performances and see whets not to do. Where the mic makes lot of noise, how far can you go with a cordless mic before singing for yourself loll, why others you can’t hear them are they holding mic incorrectly.
Study the crowd which songs do they vibe to the most , if it’s your 1st time get your nerves early and think of how can you avoid chocking ,should you use a song or a beat coz the sound is bad ..Look at all that then go in and blow them away.
