Angsaboni kodwa kummnandi , Hi there and welcome back to our interesting website that is slowly growing in Popularity .That’s means we are doing something important….
Yes indeed and this is our 8th post ,just eight …this Blog is for Music artists , Aspiring Celebrities and anyone who can connect the dots because as anything Music is business so our information may be relevant to what’s you trying to do. So don’t move “follow to our blog and tell us if we are getting out of line in our comments.
In KwaZulu Natal we are seeing something interesting happening in the hip hop space people from the same township are getting deals and going mainstream. But in Qgom and Amapiano and other genre is pure mystery whose next. So why in our township we call it ukvalelana the why we hold info and contacts that we should be sharing, here are 5 points we think why.
- 1 We gave you the knowledge before and you didn’t use it.
1st of all internet has made everything to be a plain field its either you teach yourself and make your own contacts or bother people who you make them to stop giving you information in the 1st place.
We tell people what’s we know we even doing it right now and they digest the knowledge no action because ,every time they see our moves they envy us and not in a bad way but when its comes time for them to putting the time and work and do what’s we told them they don’t.
There is this Events movement ULwaz is part of called FS Tour where we give artists the platform to perform with my other business friend Dj 2five. We tell artists come to the open mic 1st then if you did well we will put you next time they don’t come and if you put them on the line up they push the poster as if they have made it and still not come what’s do you call that mnganam?
- 2 We feel threatened by what’s they might do with the contacts and powerful tunnels.
He might be smart and hard work me.
Maybe if I give him Dj Tiras number he will get a deal and be popular than me.
His team is dangerous they will take over if I tell them how to submit on tv.
But we all family why we are threaten by each other , you might say people does not appreciate , Ill object don’t help for praise do it for your good Karma . so that the second point syasabana.
- 3 Artists don’t share anything because they think music is a competition.
We don’t care how you see it, that pure greedy we don’t know what’s celebs do with their success but I see great collabos which means mainstream is a great striving environment ,then what’s happening underground in SA or maybe in the world why artists find it hard to do features. I’m guilty too we think further if we will be reject by that person or maybe he’ll want money , if you see his value yourl need to pay that and I’m sure its won’t be much because he’s still struggling as well.
Advice compete with yourself and become the best version of your yesterday its might’s be said in other channels its applies here very well. Look what’s if you beat your 10 years ago hustle is isn’t that self competition .Our friendship is way strong than years ago .So Pay attention on you and define the rules of the game .push through the barrier of their are closing on us. Dj Melon once said at other conference Eyadini if oTira bekvalela try another path there are lot of paths but don’t bad mouth the big dogs of the game you will get really crushed it’s like that in every industry .in Business you can’t mess with Bill Gate and think you going to get away with it by the way I have so much respect for this people let’s move one hope you get the point.
- 4 We think we better than one another “Ego”
WE not expert but we slowly becoming ones , the key we humble ourselves we have to in fact everyone has to course life is full of surprises. Ego is not totally a bad thing that what’s drives our ambitions but we shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves to think we are better than other people .Hes Weak or their sound is terrible, He using me all of that we need to use each other to move forward and basically let’s not look at one another as wanting to make a little cash off one another that strategy doesn’t work. From Experience ULwaz No Makhula has learnt to process their music because some other producers push money forward and deliver poor quality and that messes with what’s we trying to do. Doing things ourselves is not efficient that why we release once after every 3 months we want the best for our fans ,if we were pushed by ego we would’ve miss the process and never go anywhere . Now we trying our luck with youtube because we feel there is a need for this.
- 5 We dont trust a person needing the contact.
So since we know each other ,you know someone’s attitude and behavior so if I give him Oskido number he’ll start by saying he got it from me then nag him no I rather not. I Our days its open as I said you get anything on the internet sometimes this people answers the inbox Makhula has talked with some serious people. He was just not ready so learn from our mistake before you reach out to someone make sure the song is master artwork is ready too. Maybe even a Music Video. You might not trust yourself “what’s I going to say” now you see with or without contacts you don’t have a approach if you have it is a bad one.
I have learned from watching videos here that you need to be creative when trying to network with people think out of the box , send him or her a video clip with a cute baby by your side tell that baby to say my dad is only asking for one shot please, please, please .or anything yourl see. And if it happens someone trusted you with the contact and tell you don’t say you got it from him, you need to respect that and think of something to get your way. In the long run you should never forget that person while its will be good for him too to not act like you owe each other.
Now it’s that moment where we should love you and leave you. But we might have enough content for you to check out and learn more about music and how to operate within it. If you liked this episode give us a like and most importantly subscribe so one day Youtube will see us and give us what’s we deserve ,that the best way to support our channel and lastly press that notification bell…if you seeing this video elsewhere we are ULwaz No Makhula in all socials….you know the Bonus
- 6 Artists don’t have any information they’re winging it.
I’m sure you are puzzled with this very last point but it’s true , Jayz didn’t know what’s he was doing he learn along the way that why it’s important to read books and hustle I know he claims not to be well read but I know that not true .most of artists don’t know what’s they should do even when we respect them. You should be encouraged by this point and move with a blind faith you will grown although the data will come incrementally its will add up and make the difference and eventually you will find yourself doing well than others. Other artists has managers who literally runs their life especially business life and sometimes its better to be in control as an artist than to have someone planning your whole move maybe in the later stage when the work load is too much .but earlier on learn in and out buy yourself. Don’t miss the chance to scale to deals are just that scale and yourl never starve again even if the contract is over you will still be a celebrity and it’s shouldn’t be too long to be independent again….
Thanks you very much salute.
