In South Africa where I’m from especially the black community that’s I’m in learning is something people must do, but no one seems to love it .After school or graduation people reach a plateau stage of life and worse youth and children are not given enough attention to the important of learning, parents leave this jobs to teachers it’s not a habit. So today’s topic wants to tackle things that’s people are going to learn the hard way or even if they don’t like it they will any way.
What’s you think your life will be like when you grow up, is going to be the opposite
Depending to who is reading this but the good thing we are all looking towards the future and we have certain dreams and things we want to do and we have a certain picture of how things will turn out. I don’t want to disappoint you but it’s not going to happen that’s way. But I don’t want to be the pessimist here, so I will leave an advice I’m following myself if you want to reach your goal at least close to what’s you envision become the better version of yourself now, and also become an above average person, in terms of your mindset. Let’s say you want to have 1000 000 in your account someday ,the 1st thing you must do is to study people who are already there and simulate most things they do from their money habits to how they spend their time this advice apply to everything you want to accomplish in life. You want a car and a big house, there are many ways to get that’s but I would look at the person who have that’s and who also have surplus of money, because you don’t want to replicate someone who is drowning on debts because of material things. It’s very important to always make a disclaimer I don’t yet have things I’m talking about, if I have it I would’ve said so, but that’s doesn’t mean my information is wrong and I won’t have this things they’re just examples, I already have some of the things I need, the rest will be a bonus and I’m grateful for that’s.
As of writing this, I recently does what I have always does after sometime,deleting contacts on my phone that’s no longer useful. I am a music producer and lot of things within music which sometimes needs audience on Social media but when removing contact’s linked with my whatsapp I realized that’s my whatsapp is liability every morning I have a newmessage from people asking for something to me .a song , a free beat or an advice about music which lead to me opening thing blog ,instead of people consuming my time one by one ,I rather dedicate time and write articles and there is a book by ULwaz No Makhula on Amazon called Music Insider that’s has all the contact’s you will need as a musician. With all that’s said I recommend a book called Deep Work on this topic , without waste of time let’s get to today’s topic.
Life is made out of minites and seconds , the time you misuse is giving your life away.
1. So that’s you will live life worth living
If you can pay attention, to what’s you do the moment you wake up to the time you sleep, you will see where your life is going. I want us to be realistic here say you have a car and what’s you do is helping people and at the end of the day you have nothing to show for it do you think that’s is good living? Or say you wake up wash your face and go straight to hang out in the store with other guys is that’s worth doing? If you are attacked by this and you wish to respond be my guest but I doubt we will find a common ground. The goal of this articles is to open your eyes and have some cause you living for as going to work year after year is much better but if it’s not backed by a bigger cause you might be drifting through life and you will die to oblivious even to the most people in your life and I will suggest you avoid that’s by all mean. If you are an artist going to record every day and do beats non-stop can be exciting and really time consuming but when all said and done does it help the well living of your bottom line?
2.To see if you not spending most of your day in daily choirs and your life is static, not improving.
For a person who is serious about life, my goal is to escape all the menial tasks at home and hire a person to those for me. Others can afford to do this but yet they know if someone do their dishes and clean their house will open a gab in their schedule and they don’t want to face that’s ,while others think it’s the kids job and not to be awkward kids needs to learn this things cause they are basic in life ,cooking and all but the hard things should be what’s we instill to ourselves and our kids ,that’s reading books of personal development and biographies of great successful people as well as focus on our relationships ,that’s if you are married have time for your spouse intentionally and get out of the noise of daily tasks that’s surely will be worthwhile. Learn and teach about money which is really a challenging subject and a unique thing to deal with but if you can master that’s part all will seems to be running smooth. And your time alone focus on something, it may be hobby or something you feel may make a difference in your community or world. I know you may said let me see what’s this guy says and your life doesn’t go this lines and maybe you already have a worker but I’m sure somewhere you need to clean up and get your life in order.
3. So your will know that’s if you die today, you gave it your best.
As human beings all the worried that’s we have dearth seems to come on top, yet we seems to forget about it when we look at our priorities. I have some business where I have customers and I know more about what’s going on in the service I’m providing then then do from previous experience, because they don’t know some minor challenges is a huge issue with them so you too, you can say but during my day I’m serving people and they complain and all of that’s, the complaints may be valid but you know what’s you need to fix now or 1st that’s even if you die now your family can inherit viable business. So with all the above analogies take action that’s once done will open many possibilities for you , for me was watching certain channels on YouTube they really change my life and I would know who I am if I didn’t stubble on those ,then those channels introduced me to books and book 10x everything as I saw books are hard and you need to develop the habit in order to read and understand them , I took the route of audiobooks ,I still read books cause is the number one way to acquire information and since audiobooks are passive you can miss most important things.
4 To be a better organized person.
So since I lost my job in 2017, its opened me to the other part of life that’s seemed real and tough which if I didn’t lose my work I would’ve thought life is easy and poor people are lazy, loosing that’s job I got another one eventually its didn’t pay as good but still I was arrogant bragging that’s how come people don’t get jobs I just got another one. See my uncle tried to explain to me the privileges I have but I couldn’t understand until I lost that’s job again and realized I wasn’t good at it. Humility grew on me and I started to feel for people who are not doing well in life as I was now a bit in their shoes ,luckily for me I got curious and learnt this new mindset I’m suggesting here, getting back to the point because of the knowledge I have acquired and habits I have instilled in myself the last to jobs I worked in not even once I was late ,why was that’s I became organized as I started to take my day seriously ,automatically I respected my boss ,I even got a job where I wasn’t supervised and that’s compelled me to perform way better so when they barge on me I was on track and it’s all work well for me till I decided to leave and if you don’t plan your life in daily dose many distractions will come your way you might not write everything you need to do but the one thing that’s you must do every day should be in your head ,saying if every day I did this one hard thing that’s is out of my comfort zone than my day will be worth it ,this suggests even if you don’t know how you going to get paid from this ,doing it and knowing maybe that’s there is a market for it its what’s matters and do that’s for a long whole. We are human one day missed because of the emergency is fine but make up for that’s loss time.

In my community nothing seems to be urgent, for youth and technology invading our lives its worse .ULwaz No Makhula which is me and my friend we saw a really powerful work habits combining our music brand together we amazed our fans doing what’s other artists do in a year in 3 months. So in December everyone was going crazy as usual, we had our little craziness but it was mostly work. We submitted our music video that’s we shot on November then we recorded 3 new songs and got helped choosing a single for January then on January we dropped a music video on TV channels and YouTube , February we dropped a single and march we boosted our page and reach 3000 followers and sometime releasing another new song. I know others know people who release more than that is but I will assure you it’s expensive to market music and everything within it, that’s why there are few main players in the game. We were efficient in our tasks, 1. Because we pushed one another and both want what’s best for the group 2. Because we want to be successful as soon as we can for me the beginning of the year all my chips were in the music table and lastly 3. We are clear about what’s we are doing.
So you too, reschedule your day, week, month and so on if you working with someone we are people and ever changing don’t make huge decisions under a spark of a moment try by all means to be objective and lets situation pass and lastly what’s I will recommend the goal of having a partner in whatever you do is not for you to hold back what’s ever eating you inside as well as not bursting without thinking. You may ask to think about it or agree and if you feel you not ok with the decision reconsider but don’t put the whole building done because of a minor misunderstanding. And lastly don’t be a inefficient one in a team. Bonus point!!

6. So that’s you will have a day that’s you are proud of
Do we average people have this kind of days? I doubt it, or rarely if it’s not my 9-5 that’s fulfill my day then I have a problem. Knowing that’s jobs are simply a economic transaction system I know is a way for me to get money are there other ways yes about 7 or more .But depending on your job or you are in a lockdown as we are now you can feel your job is a gateway drug to something meaningful that’s at least pay your bills. If not you drag to wake up in the morning and let alone doing the work ,I’m not a guru here I’m a 29years guy who once experienced the day that’s he was proud of ,here it is at the age of 26 after I lost the job I was talking about above ,I simply took my provident fund and decided to build a rental rooms so during the construction I saw a shift in my life ,that’s I wish for you to experience as well in your life time ,its dint matter that’s I was losing money or investing but my Monday was exciting and I couldn’t wait to wake up and arrive at the site because what’s was going on there was mine and it has a potential to change my life forever knowing or not. Those day I ticked off a lot of things on my daily tasks it was amazing lots of good and bad and backstabbing and so forth but it was worth it , I grew with those experiences I was a boss for a moment in charge of a project without proper schooling about this I only knew what’s I wanted. I changed for the better there and what’s happened after changed me more I got encouraged to read more and its was a perfect time for me to change from the old 9-5 working me because I would’ve sided with my workers and nothing would’ve got done. I read books, I understood that’s if you in my position you need to have a way of doing things and mine was be nice but don’t tolerate sh*t and that’s way I manage to go far as I did and learned to cultivate a powerful relationship with my neighbors there whom at first I had my own wrong 30 second preconception about them, where you normally conclude a person character and attitude within 30 sec you met, the book I read called African midwives really helped me. It’s the 1st time I published something with so much of my personal life in it. You will be proud of your days if you really make them yourself and not anyone who comes to you and ask for whatever that’s doesn’t seems to help you but balance.
[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 community
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.
