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.

WHY UPCOMING ARTISTS HAS MORE MALE FOLLOWERS THAN FEMALE ONES

Hi thanks for paying us a visit us once again, we want to share our perspective and maybe how we can improve this, underground and mainstream males like music more than female and this is not a scientific research and to upcoming artists the gap is too much not just for their music they share but even in instagram we saw that’s if you do hip hop on House and gqom and anything that’s is not musical but lyrical mostly guys follow you so why in our humble understanding that’s is?

  • 1 The lyrical content is mostly male related situations.

We may argue on this topic, but things pop culture sings about is normally streets and hustle and sometimes good life, where girls are just part of that’s good like and not important piece. So when woman hear this they rather tune to gospel music more and thinks of god than watching music videos with other woman like them popping as out while the alpha is a male .So this distaste is something most artists are not aware of but as we have seen the big songs are from people like Sjava in SA where woman is very important and treated with respect in songs and videos, ambitious entertainment balance all gender when they push their artists. London is a female artist they have and its beauty attracts males to follow her and females to want to be like her before even knowing her song , same apply to Nicky minaj but without balance we see most males being a followers of music artists especially the upcoming ones ,they encourage and give this artists hope.


  • 2 Because we approach our fans at this stage.

This comes down to self control and separating business and pleasure, our partners may not like what’s we do because of the small attention we get any worse if we found them through music,we need to convince them she was just lucky. On other hand we don’t know the true intensions of our female fans we may take advantage of them and we end up losing them because of resentment and seeing other sides of us, If we approach them it’s become a awkward situation. While on the other hand if you just become friend she will bring you more fans of a female kind which is what’s is needed,I saw doing a music video with my cousin her influence to other girls made the video get notice to a different demographics  that’s was a big up, But all in all we shouldn’t take advantage of ladies if they show love of our music.


  • 3 We don’t have a female member in our team.

If a studio is made up of males only the minds and strategies are the same and that’s girl feel is missing and we fail to connect with ladies, meaning A&R should play its part here, Even talking about teams is something rare to other artists, team is what’s make an artist people who do the business side of things and management of most things about an artist. If your team doesn’t have a woman you can be sidelined and miss a huge market that’s is supposed to be supporting you, the branding on its own is important, like my aunt said the other day I can buy Sjava’s Cd but I cannot stand him on TV so for big companies they should find a way to figure that’s out .if an artist could resembles his/her music that’s would be a win.


  • 4 We don’t know how to influence them.

See for years I wasn’t good at dating and I couldn’t figure out why, its might have been lack of confidence and other things and sometimes I saw my friends with girls and made an argument that’s  it’s because there are girls in their homes and we were all males in my home. I was right in to a certain extent up until I saw my brothers good at this, then as I began to know how to do this as we I saw that’s its all came down to influence. Our music is written to a male stand point of things and apart from the fact that’s they can vibe to it, we didn’t create a connection where they listen to the song when they’re not at the club or party. So it’s important if we write really put ourselves in different shoes so we can influence every one. Other artists always write songs about me!!! Me!!! me!!!,but that’s too as good as it is may not convince people to follow you. You can be a voice for them and then they will be influenced to follow you as their leader.


  • 5 Our Posts are not appealing to them.

Since we are an aspiring artists and we still have a long way to go ,quality of what we post may be low maybe to the fact that’s we don’t making any huge moves so all we posts it’s just gibberish and if not that’s it’s because our content has a low quality because of the gear lack so we need to take stock of those challenges as upcoming artists and solve them. Instead of buying new pair of jeans when you don’t need a G-star expensive jean go to Mr. price and get it that’s way ,the change can go to a camera so fans can have a poor quality but not us we need to be different somehow.

So this article was inspired by the fact that’s someday I looked at my instagram analytics and saw 80% males and 20% females and this was really a mind opener for me so we need to pay attention to this things. In our culture here we normally have more males in hip hop shows than female so that’s on it own is a problem that’s clearly shows the type of people following us and those that’s reacts to our message. Switching to Gqom and Dance music is a different story and actions must differ as well.


6. Because earlier on before success , we are not in a mainstream market.

Example for this point is Duncan Skuva , before he was signed to Afro ,he has male fans mostly and Tira used his knowledge and influence to put him on females market and encouraged him to tone down on rapping for the street and we saw his sound change .Lesson here is we need to focus on whats working and use it more than trying to prove to one another how good we are. lets study the masses and use the information to diliver great music to attract ladies and female in most demographics cause its has been said they can be a loyal fans who buys as well.

What’s Values artist or producer should have?

Values, Principles, Philosophies and the way of believing and what’s you see as the right thing within the roam of music. Welcome to this episode of LnM Show, where we talk about life of music and people within in. If it’s the 1st time seeing us please  subscribe so you will get more insight in the future ,if there’s a point you agree or disagree with comment below and we will correct that .Let’s get to this values.

  • 1 Don’t backstab or exploit other creative’s.

This is the most important point because we see music as rough games where others take advantage of others due to the level them at or simply because they know that they know less. Thing like paying fraction to a producer who made a beat that help you make a hit ,eventually the producers will see you flossing while he’s struggling and will resent you and maybe hate you. You may say everyone has haters, then we say this one has a motive. ULwaz No Makhula are independent artists making bigger moves we actually talk to producers how we going to work ,then they charge us or want a percentage and we always willing to pay although we know recording is just a start there is still marketing and distribution , branding and shoots producer by then is nowhere to be found to contribute which leads to my second point ,rather have an in-house beat maker who will have to sacrifice as much as we do , so when cheese come it will be spitted accordingly. Fair % on royalties is important.

Be trustworthy on your dealings

Contracts are a routen for the rich ,not a necessity for untrusted dealings

  • 2 Artist should Value time.

Before I elaborate we keep on saying artist and we may be boxing ourselves but some of this apply to everyone but let’s just say this point apply to everyone within the music industry and other sectors. Musicians seems to take time for granted they have a lot of downtime where they do nothing , smoke weed and codeine which may not be good for their health and to the kids watching to their favorite celeb they end up thinking smoking is cool which is not the case. So what’s do we suggest to so much time artists have,don’t be just an artist get into business as well till today we have realize with my friend that if we have free time we do ill so we needed to find a way to fill our time with something valuable and that will make us appreciate doing after its have been done. You can write a book ,Make youtube videos or do more songs but you need to always busy if you not doing music related things otherwise you will be out there playing celebrity and that not a good trade off spending all your days at Shisanyamas and liquor.

  • 3 Value your fans have self-control

It’s tempting to feel big when people treat you as such; you deserve it, enjoy it and be smart about it. I heard that Casper nyovest cannot talk back badly to his fans on social media especially on twitter because he had some contracts that can be bridged if he does that. What’s we saying make it your habit to take note of fans points good or bad and Improve or dismiss but we don’t think it’s good retweeting you fan mean tweet, with your mean retweet you not suppose to pay attention to that or answer politely because there’s a saying that I heard on Alux.com channel that say when fools are arguing you don’t see which is which .So hold your anger and breath it out..On Valuing your fans,we might’s add this as a disclaimer fans will always talk good or bad and there will  be your day ones , there’s a lot can be said about you but fake shouldn’t be one of them don’t fake it for PR and don’t fake it for your fans ,they see the fake smile ,they see and feel the tension between artists and they definitely see the subliminal posts on face book and they connect the dots and make a story. What’s ever that can trend without your intent is good for your brand but we don’t like pulling stunts especially negative ones so we could get attention why because people thinks that your real side you’ve been hiding so if we could have a PR person that can lack creativity we can have a problem.

  • 4 Value your worth

Money is the name of the game but standing your ground is also important disagreeing is not a bad thing if the other party understands and sees your point of view. If say you charge a performance fee if the offer is too low, you don’t even have to say how much you need to that because you see it’s not going to end well anyway that where you can involve a manager to get rid of that promoter if a good manner coz one day he might afford you .Remember point number 2 of time your worth also links all that. That why as artists we need to start to be more creative and become more than we are say if you have me in your show I will perform and talk you see my worth automatically jump coz not every event has tipsy dry fans, some have elders and youth that still needs to be conscious about life so if you could offer both you can have your own niche.

  • 5 Artists should value their fellow artists that are trying to come up.

You will feel threatened by a hot kid in the streets unless you willing to mentor that kid, and we would recommend the latter .It was great seeing big artists pull other big artists when their small. being thanked is a wonderful thing and leave that artist the homework of doing the same .What’s I like about music it’s never get crowded at  the top there are too much followers for that some love Sjava , some loves Cardi b , Some Loves ULwaz No Makhula and so on and so on. Millions of fans indeed you just have to grow yours once the door has been opened for you.

Now it that time of the show where we bounce back and let you pounder this and attach them into your life as early as possible. Become a hero to yourself by having the right principles and values. We have videos next that you will learn from as well so get into it or if you see this one in one of your friends we are ULwaz No Makhula on all socials. Press the notification bell so you will know where we release new content like this…If you are a fan of this channel you know there’s a bonus.

  • 6 Value everyone within the industry who helps your career in anyway.

From your mom and dad to people who set up a stage for you ,bring you a mic ,water or towel your hardworking manager ,the person that believed in you and signed you ,the bouncers ,people who shows love in the street ,value each and everyone. You will probably ask how I can keep track of all this , well it’s not easy but it’s something you can do ,lets us share how we do it, 1stly the person who interact with your calls you with your stage name so you should be aware of that and treat that person nicely ,people who calls Lwazi ,Malwazela or Swing they get special treatment the moment they utter those words because of the connection…be aware of the moment if you take the mic show gratitude to the person giving it to you before you get on stage. And have a team in place that I mentioned above that will keep you in check and that why you should share this with them. I don’t know how can you be polite to the deejay playing for you even if he put the wrong song by mistake  .See when you on stage entertain people but look out for subtle things that you can do that your fans might take home with them because they were so bad. Don’t make a face when a mic doesn’t work rather make a joke about it while its being fixed .So in this point take the fact that your moments matter the most good or bad how you react makes or eat the life out of your good values.
