[Durban Inanda, March 30, 2020 Monday] –Welcome to the 1st episode of Ulwaz no Makhula Show where we teach artists like us what’s we have applied to make our songs stand out on social media which led to having them popular in Durban or Ken in particular and around the world.
Point number one on how to make a powerful single.
- Get a good and a bit recognized producer who knows the genre you doing.
When we started doing singles which is what’s we’ve been doing till today , we did song on our own , using unpopular producer but who had a potential and who did became popular a bit…that was 2009 song called syavuma .it was a nice song but you cannot find it on the internet which should be your primary goal. Your song needs to be big on internet 1st.
We are men & woman who are practical in dealing with the conditions in our communityNelson Mandela
Our second Single 2017 if I’m not mistaken we worked with Dj Target No Ndile but we didn’t mention them cause we paid and all that loll , which backfired still the streets doesn’t know us the song was called IYONA and we pushed it hard even putted it on digital platform but platform we targeted ignored us..
2018 that where things started to happen , on our new Song KHONINTENGBAMBILE featuring the best in the game TOS and we did the smart thing by mistake and mention target and Ndile…that when Internets and music websites pick up on us….great producer great artists that the 1st step that made our song a hit.
- Find helping artists that are good at what’s you not.
this point goes straight to the artists that like to work solo, it doesn’t work well to be unkom idla yodwa, and here you don’t have to get a famous artist on 2 of our big songs we used Magibela because he has a great voice for qgom, but when time came for amapiano we had to leave him coz we could manage and we did. So let’s say the song we did on our own was not good we need help. We would have looked for help from people who does the genre we were approaching. So embrace help.
- Do music with your best friend (Mature Best Friend or your Gf)
This point will be counterintuitive but why this person. 1st of all you need to define your a best friend and see if you have anything in common. This show is about friends doing music not doing crime. we not partners in crime we partners in business you may not know us and thinks we pushing some ego or lying to you I dare you to Google us. my point being if you referring to your old buddy from primary and you suddenly meet in a show and now you decide to start a group it’s not going to work. This is how it’s happen to us, maybe it’s not going to work for you but hear us out.
we started by being friends for year while I Lwaz was busy with hip hop and Makhula busy with qgom neNdw Boyz.Our friendship became strong to the point that we wouldn’t let each other down in every endeavor we are taking. So that how you should start. Because you start with others bakshiye endleln waste of time and money when they drop you.
Gf Part comes from our other Friend Jozlina who mixes our songs he does Music with his love of his life. You cannot go wrong in that they have been in No.1 countless times on Mtv base top 10. They apply their chemistry well its works.
- Don’t wait to build a team.
Don’t wait for a manager or producer that you can use for free .don’t wait for anything. If you want to make this hit show your friend this video And ask sngahlulwa yin ,we can do this…its might be a challenge spending say a budget of R2500 in a period of 3 months but it will be worth it. Pay for studio, artwork, and boosting of a song as well as mixing and mastering on this money that your team. Since maybe you are friends of two or three divide R2500 by number of yourselves and contribute.
- After you released the song push it (digitally) like crazy.
We going to start by saying something unpopular on this point, you no longer need and free performance exposure 2get recognized, expose you on all social Medias. Face book, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, tumbler, youtube ECT…organize neat links and don’t let a day or 3 hours without posting your hot song. So this how it happened to us maybe we have never talked about it but it’s happen coz we true friends. If I see Makhula posting I feel guilty and like I’m not playing my part so I post as well… I invite my friends to like our page, he does the same we want this as bad. If they ask you to come and perform charge them because they see your hard work so you will be able to be motivated and push more.

Save Money while you working on that hit song.
Lets us elaborate negotiate services studios , beats , artwork and booking get a fair price so you won’t have to wait too long to raise money and loose spirit of a song. Say we have so much we would like to come and record there politely.
