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
