A Message To All ‘Upcoming’ Artists-Photo


If you are a singer, you are a singer … if you are an actor/actress that’s what you are. I don’t believe in upcoming status. Moving on, some of you believe that once you start you will automatically become famous and start making money. It’s a process, the bitter truth is it does not take a day to grow a tree and that applies to humans. If you take a minute to research on other great musicians you will realise that they put a lot of handwork and dedication over the years to be where they are now.

Steps to climb to the top?

You have to understand that I am giving my opinion or advice. I might not be right about everything but I hope you learn something new from this post.

First of all, you have to know your market and study your audience. Music is NOT music. There are different types of music. What I found out is that any music that is danceable in the club will spread like wide fire. So start from there, make party jams and not only you can dance to, but friends of friends can go crazy for. The song should be produced with quality sound / good producers (no excessive use of auto tune).

Secondly, Make friends with DJs. I tell you, like it or not, they are the best promoters. They would play your songs at every event and get people asking, ‘who sang this song?’ You can never go wrong with DJs, before you know it, your song will be aired on radio and TV channels.

Thirdly, have a relationship with entertainment bloggers. They are the group of people that are becoming very powerful on the internet. The likes of Jaguda.com, Korrectnation.com, Gidilounge and Boomzinemagazine.com are taking entertainment to another level. Sometimes, you might have to pay a little fee for promotion but a blog post is always free (that I know of).

Next, never underestimate the power of social networks like facebook and twitter. Always share a link to your songs on social networks. You should create a fan pag and encourage people to like it and share it to friends. Some friends are supportive but dont be discouraged if they are not, you can do it with or without them because people who you dont know will appreciate your work and helppromot it on their page.

Finally, you have to be hardworking, Rome was not built in a day. It takes a lot of determination to achieve your goal. Read and watch interviews of famous stars and learn.

Good luck with achieving your dream
