Can you associate value with your industry?

Especially, after this pandemic called Covid 19.

This was a wakeup call for most people, its was especially for me seeing businesses loses billions and million’s in a matter of weeks and months. Lockdown was necessary and this can be a conspiracy theory or whatever the fact remains this showed how your business or industry fragile is. I always try to make things simple and bring it back to an individual level and most people seem to not this concept, when I ask them so what this means is for you? Others will say people will lose jobs, and then I correct them and say I said you. But let expand what im is trying to say.

  1. What’s does this means to your child?

We may agree that’s this will never happen again during our lifetime but this virus left clues and lesson’s your job as a parent is to read between the lines and encourage your kids to choose right industry as a career choice not just for viruses but also the technological advancement and the real things that’s will always have intrinsic value like agriculture, Shelter, Health, finance to mention the few. These industries are linked with other industries where should you suggest your kid go not saying your decision will be final but if you are paying the fees you can have a great influence and for a good cause

2. What’s was your wakeup call

This point is to remind you that’s you thought as a solution during our numbing boring lockdown is still is, don’t give up on it. Breakthroughs come in the times of hardship if you were not busy hooked on social media you had enough me time to do introspection. Again what’s does this means to you? Does it means you still going to recommend teaching to your minellium kid who is still at high school as a viable career while technology is coming so hard on that’s industry? Or send him to do something that’s will always be relevant to human survival. We know about passion’s and hobbies you may not afford to send a kid to college or he may want to do something totally unnecessary or that’s doesn’t have intrinsic value like music or sport this will only work depending on the type of parent you are. Forcing a kid to do something that’s she is not passionate about may be a huge misstep me for example I always loved music and by now I’m good at it but parental advices and working 9-5 really delayed my progress I haven’t gave up because I already have some accomplishments and I’m about to go hard and realize my dream. So the realization that’s music might not matter at some point in my life made me want to invest everything I have once and for all right now ,I’m not going to be a musician for the rest of my life but I am planning to start a business at some point. So check your wakeup call and don’t take it for granted

3. If you can be removed in your position at work would it matter?

We take jobs for monetary purposes and for a while that’s works fine but it’s shouldn’t be a norm .being worried about is it this’s I came to do in this world is a big question you should ask yourself now and again. Secondly if a robot were to be putted in my place where would I go? The trap we get ourselves into we start working with needs and we manage to cover them but then all of a sudden you create wants also known as luxuries and when you have those you cannot move forward in life .Now if you lose your source of income then fake life you have created suffer. No does what’s you do matter? Are you hard to replace? Do you have qualities most people don’t have because that’s what will make what you do valuable if you and your taste into it no matter how lame what’s you do. But still consider looking at the industries we mentioned above

4. Your industry may be your skill.

Other people have number of skills; the problem with this is you have to use these skills to make money meaning work. Here we will suggests you looking to industries that’s will free your time or the ones you are passionate about and end up not feeling like work. As we speak I never consider writing this blogs work that’s why im in bed now writing and I will always do this throughout my life. I cannot say I love writing but sharing value is what’s I love and building audience on like.  One thing you should take on today’s topic is that’s you need balance in life ,between what’s you can endure and what’s you can’t but if you feel deep down you don’t love or really not enjoy your life because of your job you might consider having a exit plan. I know there will be other factors like providing your family and the pressure they will put on you. That’s where you should stand your ground and get yourself out of rat race

5. Is your industry crowded and have result ceiling?

You are a you tuber, blogger or building audiences on social media and building pages or you on twitter you promote cause you are an influence. The challenge with social media its easy to see the shine and juice others post and miss the work behind,I heard a guy said there is a lady with 30k followers and she charges R1500 to promote your product ,but since he ended up not interested she followed and ask for a collabo since this guy brand was pushing as well. You see the strategy is good but there is uncertainty involved and this lady had to come back, there is ceiling if you only big in one space not to mention if the brand you pushing don’t make sales out of your audience. The pages on face book may mean well but you may not know how to balance your time in this places you can miss where you are strong. The data you use and all the clothing and pics and quality content you put up cost money you not alone options are there so how can you differentiate yourself or this platform will keep striving because of wanna bees.

When you start a business or work you have big hopes and plans , you don’t start a corner shop with a aim to remain there or work without climbing a ladder. But if there are many corner shops already the competition will be tight so you may need to outwork ,outsmart and take more risks to reach your initial vision. Same at work you need to prove yourself that’s you deserve the position more but if everyone already have required qualification then you might need to be more than a qualified person. There are no much of empty industries but there are those important that’s people don’t pay attention to so that’s where I encourage for you to look and research.

What are 5 things that artists do right?

Hunger

Dedication

Learning

This one was obvious for me today looking at posts on face book of people trying to make money out of artists by saying what’s they do wrong and what’s they should do. You see I’m an artist and I get offended when this fake PR talk all they want on social media and this gurus want to be and take a picture with a Celebrity so it will seems like they know what’s their talking about. So this is my heads-up to everyone watching this channel at the moment we not planning to ask money from you and when or if we decide to do so it will come from a place of virtue and principles and respect we have for people… I don’t see you as a number or a like that why we can bump in to each other and talk although tension will be there but that normal .If you as a rapper or Kwaito or house Dj feel like you cannot trust a person claiming to know much about your industry trust your guts and don’t do business with him/her.

Apologies for that long intro let’s get down to business, what’s we did right when we started out and what’s you doing right already. Before I jump to it ,it’s important to remind you to subscribe to our channel by clicking that red subscribe button maybe you’ve been here before and thought yourl never come back here you are and we resonate with you give us a shot . LnM Show by ULwaz No Makhula we not gurus we artists you can check us out ,our songs and Music Video we share insight in terms of our experience and knowledge.

  1. Artists and Producers like to improve themselves.

You see maybe not everyone but every producer I know took some time to master his craft and everyone following will do the same ,it’s become natural it a must to learn new tricks as a Producer listening to other beat makers and mixing engineers doing amazing stuff you say I gatta learn that and you do. Watch Tutorials, read some notes or purely experiment. So I want to congratulate producers keep up the good work. I don’t know what’s value you will find in this episode but for me I felt the need of gratitude hope yourl learn what’s to do as well if you just starting out. Artists improve their writing and they can be conscious of their content and try to deliver what’s people can understand we want to say great work guys that the way. I remember the group from eNanda called double 7 , decided to feature Mphako on a track and after past years of beef and it got squashed a hardcore track was going to create some subliminal so they did a great concept about amaphupho meaning dreams they want to achieve in music which became a huge track featuring a vocalist that what’s industry needs bafwethu  keep it up.

  • 2 Matured artists know the right people and use them.

This is the big boys stuff, you see moving to point number one this one come to mature everything I just mentioned basically Point number 1 is just to reduce work and be able to be independent, this one makes you a master because you know who write you a song, who mixes it, who master it and who distribute it then your job becomes recording it only then lets the pros take off the load on your back. We encourage you to become matured quickly and don’t try to be anything only focuses on that thing that has higher upside.

Take risks , study people your better life depends on it.

  • 3 Some artists master the skill of performance.

In this one I’m guilty, how do you do this it’s simple but not easy. Here is how I did it if I know I have a new songs that I would love people to see me perform I practice them every night until the day of performance come. I open the beat read my script and recite my verses song by song put my verses aside until I know the songs well without a script ,and then Il sung them during the day at work in my head  just keep track of them. On that I stand up act like there’s mic on my hand and picture the crowd of people singing with me .After all this I’m 99% that I’m going to kill the crowd in kwaito is so easy master the dance moves lyrics is just 4 lines repeated so yah not all artists only few with unknown songs master this but we celebrate their hard work today syabonga.

  • 4 Artists Respects one another.

Here is what’s I like about our music community we know one another and we respect one another. We see beefs on mainstream but we know it’s for show business so you know deep down they know each other’s place. We may be criticized because we used drugs sometimes but we rarely try to harm one another it’s only a healthy competition in everything we do. Even those beefs and diss don’t reach physical fights so we should appreciate that behavior and encourage it to keep going. Respect and Trust goes a long way in every society but we know some categories of the industry tries to separates up , like media and companies as well as awards nowadays the aim behind them is fortune and bribery that why mostly we don’t participate because drama may not good for our physo even if its seems to be good for business but sleeping at night is much better.

  • 5  Value the platforms they’re given.

We might have an ego or pride now or realization of not wanting to perform for free but every stage we got back then was a hope of getting a recognition but that no longer a case, but as artists we value the platforms we are given and we don’t take them for granted so I want to give thumps up to artists who really show appreciation to people who give them platform. And those who exploit artists shame on you. But as a rule of thumb it’s important to give that community radio at least R50 because you don’t know what’s they give him so yah .humility play a huge role in anyone’s life. Look after people who look after you and when it’s strictly business don’t mix it with pleasure.

It has come to the part I hate the most , of leaving now assuming there is a kid who watched this video as well I want to tell you boy or girl life is not bad things only and it’s not good things only but you have to try a look for the good and make more of it , having money is good so be aware now people with no money and don’t take their advice to heart about money than those with money listen attentively ,this applies to music don’t mind a manager who doesn’t have a track record of managing successful artists and thinks he can tell you or she can tell you something. Do your thing and take advice from experts and people who are where you want to be. Now I didn’t say press a notification bell so please do and don’t forget to follow us on all social media as ULwaz No Makhula this is LnM show its time for that Bonus.

  • 6 They can open doors for one another without expecting recognition.

If artists were another form of species I would’ve said most of them they are incredible species, as much as we don’t do this often but it does happen, we Saw Zakwe putting on Duncan and Zuluboy putting Zakwe and so on, in Gospel Thina Zungu been putting artists .Dj Tira has a huge successful company as well as Oskido till this day they put on artists to help them feed their families with talent god has given them. Only thing we want to add to our friends don’t expect this as your strategy to succeed put in the work and look for your own path to success hope this episode wasn’t that lame but valuable and its show that in life and media there is less Thank you and appreciation of what’s we have achieved as human being, they push the negative stuff only that why we recommend if you are an artist you must not watch TV and listen to radio. You cannot be a actor and a spectator choose a side Thanks, goodbye.
