WOW, but South Africa has talent!
Last night was once again a reminder of just exactly how MC’s(rappers) we have in our country.
Where were the label owners/producers?
They should have been like the crocodile’s in the Limpopo river just snap,snap,snapping up the talent…
A problem that we have in the industry is,that there is a lack of skilled help.
Local newspapers aren’t offering our artists any form of free advertising,charging R2500 for an ad for one week, thus all advertising is being done via social networks or word of mouth, which would be effective if our people weren’t so Americanised(too much into what those artists are doing and not paying attention to ours).
It would be great if the students that are studying marketing/PR/artist management/photography or even media studies assist our artists with there knowledge whether it be entertainment artists/designer or jewellery makers, which is the exposure that upcoming artist need, as when the are coming up they don’t necessarily have enough funds to pay for all those services.Not only will it look good on their CV’s but it will also create a pride in our country’s assets, and we will regard our artists higher than we regard the international artists.
The international artists are chuffed with our artists and type of dances that we do,that people like Beyoncè(coz yes that’s what she is a person) performing our dances in her music video and then people think that it was created by her.Sorry babe my five year old daughter has been dancing like that way before “run the world” was even thought of,lol.
This is a plea to our artists to be REAL,be YOU, and be proudly South African no need to be Lil Wayne or Nicki Minaj just be who you are!
Big up’s to our artists that performed at Purple Turtle last night and also to you audience members that were willing to supporting our up and coming artists.
You can follow the artists as well:
Mr Goal D Locks- Goaldy on Sound Cloud and @ASTAR_TSE on twitter
J.O- JOCPT on Sound cloud and legacy events on facebook
Caliber-music downloadable on kasimp3(free people)
And then to the only female rapper that was there last night to represent the ladies Andelene(apologies if i didn’t get your name correct) big up’s babe and keep on keeping on.
Hey! Ladies why is there only one chicka representing us?We most definitely have some dope female MC’S ,so start showing up and bring back female rappers the likes of Godessa.
So follow our artists listed above,try to get to as much performances of theirs as possible, so they can push up their level of expertise so we can kick the internationals in the rear.
P.S mention the post to your buddies so more people can realise what or where or country should be in our way of thinking.
Peace and Love
