Royalties Can Finally Make You Rich (Hawu?)

South African music is blowing up, our music videos and event stages are on fleek. Radio is playing more local content then it used to and lil' bit of Davido and Wizkid every now and then. Now you, a young potential artist can take this opportunities to start creating wealth for yourself, earn some royalties! Every year you will be paid a large some of money, simply by having your song play on radio, commercials, stream and live performances.

The late Brenda Fassie, is still getting royalties to this day. Remember the hit single by AKA, "All Eyes On ME", well it had the sample "Ngiyakusaba" by Brenda Fassie

Every time someone samples your song, you get more royalties.

I will not go into details how royalties are earned, its a pretty
exciting topic that needs a whole article on its own. As long as you 
understand that music is a business and your song is the product, you will value the need of other roles in your business.

"I need a market, can i get someone whole will connect me to radio. I need an event promoter,
I also need an engineer, to master my product before shipping(uploading) it". 

A team that has specific roles for each member of the team, will have a clear path to getting a hit single. If you need a marketer, to get your music on facebook pages, with big following, email and see what happens.
