Let’s talk ababout it ,we spend our lives on the internet but wealth is not shared reasonably . We might not built this platforms , reddit ,Facebook ,itunes ,tidal ,instagram ,tiktok ,Twitter ,playstore ,amazon andhas more this platforms has been a life changer for most of us.
Problem after you are in Return on Time is not equivalent and you need to be already having money to keep up with the likes of Youtube stars and Celebrities.
I believe Americas Platforms like Itunes ,playstores and more are good but not for us as African artists. Mina ngrepha ngeszulu and no matter how global I wanna become im still serving Zulu community.
Now its comes back to get my royalties as sales , artists lie to be getting that’s money especially underground ones. Aggregaters are in business taking that’s R300 upfront , my point is the value of digital distribution online is still doesn’t match it’s costs for artists.
Going to platforms like slikouron and fakaza and more free platforms its the same thing. Basically every artist should own his or her own website and drive his own traffic ,it’s stupid for us rappers and djs to delay this ,sikwenza konke except iwebsite.
I know this other free and itunes platforms has audiance already but you & I should put one or two songs there and lets people who loves us follow us out of there…this was meant to be a Facebook post but hey now I have my own Facebook which is this blog and website the more I grow this the better.
Maybe wordpress will not promote this article but if they don’t sort out the stripe problem of not reaching out of USA ,they gonna suffer a bit because its bad creating content only for them to benefit your traffic doesn’t pay you earlier on.
Almost all the internet platforms has some kind of unnecessary limitations and lack of incentives and as a business person this pisses me off and as a customer too. Someone might clearly do a better job. I think Landr mastering is doing a great job ,postmywall is doing a great job as well as fiver this people didn’t sponser me I just resonate with whats they do.
This article is for thought provoking ,thanks for reading and take notes you might be a kid out there about to study computer science or programming and you want to make money and see that’s you have been using Facebook for years and nothing to show for it ,what if I build something if the content is great its go viral people get paid or the information you share is really impactful its appear to the right people who can make it mainstream.
This website is meant to bebe a big media to make anyone involved betteroff ,if you put content here and we get paid on the other side you should get paid too. LnM @lnmshow ulwaz no makhula
We think we are brands Actually we are not at least not most of us. We are living in a society that’s promote the personal brand which contradicts with who we really are. You see if you can base your so called brand into your actual living than that will be ok.
But if you have to put some ad on to fool strangers online then you are doing yourself a disservice cause you self sabotaging yourself claiming to be something you are not and that’s will take a toll on you ,the stress you will have will be linked to this fake life of yours . While you will be making money in real life hard work where you will drag mornings and complicated work politics .
You won’t see its not worth it to take that’s money and buy fancy phone and clothes to have more followers on social media especially when you don’t even have a talent or skill you are promoting just your looks or clothes you printed and try to sell it online. If you take time and do the math, see if you are losing or winning you will see whether to continue or stop making full of yourself.
Now I’m not totally bashing social media, but you need to study the platform you are using and if you happen to make money at least after 1-3 years then you might on to something. You need to understand if your online presence differ more than your reality, you might suffer online trawlers who call you scammer or fake model, and to girls social media might really be dangerous since you guys like to expose your body for the same reasons .
Now there’s a whole industry based on Twitter where woman monetize their nude content,I wouldn’t recommend this strategy of making a living to a person who reads our blog . Self love and sexiness cannot be contradicted and things you learn about body sexiness and woman power has nothing to do with exposing your body online .
The question you should ask yourself why am I doing this? If is needing money then get a job ,if you want a partner go out more and let go of this twerking stuff.
The hook ups are an industry but their risky because you might end up being a victim of human trafficking. And you might have a problem when you want to start a life of a motherhood and wife because past will reach out and try to ruin anything. For example I had to say no to one of my ex who asked for my private part picture since I had a aspiring music artist ,imagine having that’s out there when I make it eventually .
Social media make us miss the moment and our real background, a post that’s I saw once saying know your home situation and get out of instagram. Now say your house is falling can you take a picture in that’s? No you will be busy trying to fix it. This also apply to not enjoying a meal and get together since phones dictates the event ,if you can try with your friends and leave the phone’s and bring real camera you might experience this times better and the best memories are kept in our minds you don’t need a phone to do that’s.
How you deal with problems? I use to have a habit of posting everything even things I delete after I get back to my senses. Now I invest time and reread what’s I post and how it may diminish the person I may be attacking and maybe I cannot take back. The maturity will be when you really remove your life from social media , what’s I normally do now I go on face book and post links of my music and this blogs rather than engage in funny topics that are there and harmful language .
The social peer pressure we are getting is too much event the funeral are way expensive because some of this humble events are now recorded and people find wearing all black cool ,while the family is mourning. The goal of this article today, if for you to separate your life from social media even though like the future is going there, but it’s not look for other value out of it. The only thing you can try online is selling and really make money there if not there is no point, even positive quotes has lost it meaning because its comes from the book you might never read because you read posts.
Thanks I hope I have opened your eyes a bit today, becareful the most dangerous thing on social media is bad influences and repetition the habits of logging in and out and in and out every second. People swear there and others try to act like their smart, while others copy and paste jokes, don’t fall for it. LnM , please like our page on face book as ULwaz No Makhula.

Clearly we as human race we have become a products of internet companies like Facebook and twitter and this is not going to change anytime soon. Because this applications are addictive and build with a help of professionals who have degrees in human nature has got us hooked. Building a business based on this platform is a real risk although worth taking but in a long run you not in control of your business future if this social Medias change their algorithms so you are at their mercy. I experienced this personally while pushing my music links on Facebook and they constantly block my posts thinking I am a spam or just stopping me on my tracks because when I do it organic they don’t get anything except me driving their audience to the websites where I put my music and they don’t want that’s.
Google is an incredible tool , YouTube too ,Vk Facebook and twitter and not to mention Messaging apps like What’s app , Telegram , viper and many more the problem is we get distracted every moment we try to focus in an important things in life and under deliver compare to our potential. The more we stay online the more ads are portrayed in front of us by companies and our favorite’scelebrities and thus effect our spending decision.
The problem with this is when we get on social media we normally want to socialize and have fun and engage with people we know and don’t know. Others come to seek dates and if we wanted to buy something we would’ve gone to Alabama or amazon apps but as human being marketing makes us realize things we might want but not actually need.
Early this morning I was on twitter and I saw a guy posting a car and that’s wasn’t even an ad but seeing comments and how he got attention makes me think of having a car myself so of Couse this platforms will strive even if they bring the worst in us, envious and jealousy .The goal of this article is for us to reduce social media usage and realize it’s not a just time costs it’s also a bad habit if it doesn’t affect your bottom line positively.
It’s a risky bet
Marketing is now starting to be seen like a social media job but that’s cannot be far from the truth. But marketing and distribution are independent industry apart from what’s is happening in the internet it’s just another feature. So trying to be a DYI and promote everything you are doing on the internet is not effective especially on social media.
The outside world is still a good marketing platform also depending on your product and service. Other thing is when you try to do an internet based business you may lack a skill of a sales person which is also required here ,the handling of objections ,follow ups and closing your clients and disadvantages here people have all the time to look at your offer objectively or logically unless what’s you are serving is a need or essential like food and transport which have its own apps now and you don’t need to be in social networks to get it.
As you promote your business in this platforms ,you making this platforms more profitable and that’s is fine if you do it intentionally like boosting your ad or page other than drifting on groups and being blocked now and again.
You are a product to social media
Social media has lost its value as it did when we started using it back in 2009 and new ones like Tiktok you should be careful getting hooked on them the usage is expensive because its requires video and audio data. We are no longer getting the endorphins we use to get and like aluxer confirms it’s now just a bad habit we have and we might need to crush it once and for all and get back to our old ways more and socialize better apart from pandemics messing with us.
Realizing you are being volunteer used by this companies should be a wakeup call and check where you are lacking because of it and see actions that’s you take because of it. This messes with your phycology and its influences how you deal with people because you do things that’s you wouldn’t do in person unless you are a socio path.
Covid 19 has to have trusted sources of information from the bunch because people were saying whatever about this pandemic and really lying to one another. Social media has become some source of information. The Qoura and Pinterest as well as Tumbler is strictly for interesting information and adding LinkedIn offers jobs and talk about business and important skills like sales and so on.
But this platforms hasn’t made our lives easier the only thing I see are premiums to be in a certain position or bombarded by a lot of information that’s doesn’t collate to the real world and in disorganized manner we end up reading books online without us being aware and reading things that’s doesn’t impact our lives at all. If you could start reading a book with the time you spend online you can have a breakthrough in a certain place in your life or listen to an audiobook.
Myth and beliefs are being spread here and we end up reading peoples mindset as well, because when people type something becomes the reflection of who we think they are. We don’t think the post is calculated or represent something else ,that’s why other people have fake accounts and attack other people and others have alter egos and spend their days promoting that’s and wonder why they don’t reach their goals and forget they spend most of their mental effort on being something they’re not .
If you are in that’s trap you can do something about it. Meditate on this article and try to ground yourself in internet usage and really come back to the real world. You will find yourself being productive and thus see the ROT (return on time) and eventually ROI (return on investment)
Its means you need a gateway times from social media and engage in a real world
I was listening to Ready Player one audio book which I enjoy , it’s a gick tech guy acting in a future 2041 where the AI is a thing and its shows the amplified life of social media where people will spend their lives as parallel people having an online avatar which is a representation of yourself .
who has money and most of things that’s ordinary person can have but the difference online life will be a game but like social media now ads will still be a part of a culture and well as influencers and brand ambassadors will be there. With that’s said its means being online by then will also be lucrative because points people will be getting online could be converted to real life like bitcon.
You could be rich online as an avatar and be poor in a real world. So this means for this generation we may embrace part of internet and its perks but we need to be weary of everything around it. Position yourself on social media to be not a narcissist that’s won’t help you in anyway and try to live a life with a meaning and teach your kids basics and you going to leave them in a different world but the principles won’t change and values you would’vetaught them will be everything.
To you it’s also mean’s stop checking social proof and being narcissist and a pure consumer
Avoid looking what’s everybody is doing and cultivate your own ways ,because if something is done by everyone its means it’s easy and most of the time not worth it now and in the long run and that’s social proof and I have talked about it in another article.
Your pride lead you to want to splurge on social media and show people you don’t know how good you are doing. Sometimes this may come from a place of void and incompleteness from your accomplishment and want unnecessary attention and social media can offer that’s. Think before you do, make that’s your mantra I don’t know how many posts I didn’t post because I started by thinking how what’s I want to say is going to make sense to other person.
I know a friend who quite Facebook and for him it was a good move because he was a pure consumer, he realized he wasn’t like other people and didn’t like to brag about himself or comment so he was just consuming every unnecessary data that’s came across his feed, so he decided to stop.
Other go online to laugh and have fun and others are browsing and other seek sexual content whatever your reasons do it intentionally and don t be a consumer because its might not be a valuable way to spend your time unless you have joined the right motivational groups or aligned with your real life industry.
Thanks for reading todays article and I want to say, this are big companies and they can sue me for attacking them but disclaimer is in place this view are mine and not in attack to this companies but as a user it’s how I feel and somehow complaining because I have been blocked because I was pushing my music while other’s posts dangerous sexual content and get away with it.
I may sound like bragging and being a naysayer I’m just sharing to my followers that’s we can have a better life even if we are not attached to social media.
Hi todays article is based on my life experience and knowledge I have acquired and I’m not trying to be absolute and controversial but having a view on life is the best state to be at because most people and musicians drifts through life without an awareness of what’s going on outside and within them in their minds and life. Others think life is hard or is how to be certain way and other spend their days sitting around the tuck shops and showing not eager to win at life and become something of themselves so today we wish to open your eyes at least by an inch and make you see you could be someone better not someone average and who is a normal rapper who will quite after getting a 9-5 job.
1 Get out of a crowds and negative routines.
You might be a lady , you normally have girls together and say you enjoy life with other girls your age and drink alcohol and have a blast that’s good but is that’s aligned with your life goals and purpose?
We not trying to change anyone here but let’s do an experiment here if your birthday is so important then every year you have a massive loss in a form of investment in this day and if you don’t have cash that’s time you go to debt because this is a once in a year situation right? Wrong look you need to get out of the bubble and realize you aren’t getting any younger and start curving a purpose for yourself and invest on that’s and become the best version of yourself ,that’s may mean changing that’s circle of friends and those drinking habits. Because if there is 10 of you ,you guys do this 10 times or more per year and already behind by a mile compare to someone who reads books and watch great YouTube channels to help him/her sane. I recommend Channels like @ALUX.COM on YouTube and SUCCESSTV (with red and black logo and VALUETAINMENT for you to start on this path of success and make your life worth it.
2 Don’t binge social media limit yourself in it?
Even if you market something on places like Facebook, twitter, instar, tiktok and more have it on a system and have a room for your sanity and loneliness where you can think and meditate or hit some pushups. Just condition yourself and I want to advice you something take the pain of boredom and experience it so where you get a chance to go out there and live life, work and so on you will grab it with both hands and be gratitude. Today I learn that’s Lockdown is happening for the second time and I’m writing this as a grateful person cause I’m in the zone and I’m using this time to help my fellow human kind like me in this noisy culture we living in. Key of this point don’t let your bad behavior get all over you without a fight , challenge them in short , challenge your mind and tell it what’s to do and not be told by it all the time. Take control of your life and start building yourself good habits. If you take this and try it, it’s going to be hard but don’t swear it. Just improve and create strategies to deal with your anxieties and times where you feel a bit depressed. Today Mphako’s Video played on Mtv Base and this positive thing made me realize through our talent and hobby we have inspired kids from my neighborhood because they saw it and talked about it, instead of a negative event of guys stealing cars or robbery which shows another side of life which is not good for society.
If you don’t learn from history , yourl be stuck in the past
For me knowing I can always learn something new makes my life worth it, in some aspect of my life I might have to improve but knowledge acquiring I have become way better and I’m proud of that’s .If you can follow the channels I recommended on YouTube and try to avoid looking at topics that’s won’t help you and focus on those in line with how you can better yourself then your curiosity will be filled day by day. All I ask is for you to take action on actionable steps we suggest or reading this won’t help you .last channel I forgot is Grand cardone see you don’t have to take every advice they give but 1% will change your life and view of life .
4 Try all the things that’s has a potential to better your life.
I grow up knowing and thinking school is the only thing needed to better my life but now I know knowledge and how to do something is what’s will change my life. It’s doesn’t matter if I got it in college or online school for as long as I can do it I’m good to go. To my second point jobs in South Africa require some sort of diploma or degree to get employed and be in a position but that’s can be limiting to other things other people want to do with their lives, Books have more information than what universities offer but you need to be disciplined to be able to do it by yourself but you can try if you don’t have money to pay tuition fee just buy data and get busy download free pdfs and so on. I can’t wait to be rich to share this kind of information Couse that’s certain it’s going to happen and by then I might not have time to write like this .SO try to get things you want in many ways, we live in the world that’s is runned and operates with money meaning money of the important of things should be on top, to the point that’s you should be weary of someone asking you to do something for free.
5 Having family as important as them not interfering to your personal life
Family has been portrayed as the most important aspect of life and I agree but I want to and that’s you should be able to survive if they all die at the same time and you luckily made it. I know this example is extreme but this point only means be your own person and try to have a conversation with your family to let you try doing things differently your own way for as long as it’s not killing people or anything that’s is not striving to better yourself. In the start of 2018 I decided to stop watching TV and payoff has been amazing because things I think about lately are really mind-blowing and they are aligned with my life purpose and cause ,I don’t think much about news and episodes playing on TV because they really not going to help me in anyway. I got a job and I had to live inside my work, so normal person would want to buy a TV the moment they arrive for me it was a blessing in disguise being there, I focused on my healthy eating because at home it’s hard the kind of food they cook is not good in a long run. There was no distractions from my reading and gym. Now I’m back home because I could use freedom and my brother needed the job more than I did and my secret is I still spend most of my time in my room and with my friends on whatsapp who happens to be number 1 customers of my beats and who visits my blog so I’m grateful.
