Press Release by Mr Moyo (Fresh Impressions Owner)

“I had been watching Lux Kent for a while with the work him and Jarod Kemp had been doing with the ‘Living Legacy Movement.’ I knew at some point we will work together. I remember Courtney Antipas asking me last month why I haven’t signed Lux Kent yet. His message came in very early that morning, before 7am, and I knew I had to approach Lux Kent. To my suprise, when I did approach him, i was told Jarod Kemp
had asked Lux Kent, a week before that, what he would do if I came and said I would like to sign him and work with him. It is evident this signing is for this time and season and there was confirmation all around. Lux Kent’s online presence, blog and web excellence is one thing many artists can learn from him and I know he has a lot to offer. We will help, of coz, as well in growing him as a brand. Fresh Impressions prides itself in giving artists new platforms and widening their reach extensively and that’s what’s we undoubtedly plan to do with Lux Kent.”

Open letter to AKA and Cassper Nyovest by Harold Moyo

aka-and-cassper-nyovest

As a hip hop fan and someone who understands the power hip hop culture has in our society and young people I gave myself liberty to write this to you.

AKA

Firstly I would like to tell you that I respect your work ethics, strategies, consistency, boldness, perfection and faith in yourself. You have shown and it doesn’t need to be proven that you are the greatest hip hop artist to come out of Southern, East and North Africa to date. There are guys we respect and who embody great elements of hip hop like Proverb, Tumi, Pro Mkhize and HHP who did well and continued to help build a foundation for SA hip hop but you took it to another level. It’s no secret that you have chess moves and you have a vision for your music of which many hip hop artist lack and that’s commendable. I remember meeting you at the SA Hip Hop Awards nominees announcement ceremony two years back and you told me how you wanted to get into Africa more and conquer it before you try and rush to America or the UK which was not your focus. Now as we speak you’ve been to most parts of Africa, USA and UK which is something many people can learn from.

Be faithful with what you are given and work the ground you have until it’s too small for you and bigger opportunities come your way. What our young people from SA and Africa can’t learn from you AKA is your passion to fight with artists and coming out as rude to the public! I know you have loyal fans of which I was one of the people who bought your albums and I hadn’t purchased any mainstream hip hop album in almost a decade, this album was suppose to be past platinum by now. I know you might say you don’t care but many people want to support you and buy your albums but whenever I have hip hop conversations many say your attitude suck. The businessman that you are should know what builds and what damages his brand. You are on the right track but you should be doing Zahara and mam Brenda Fassie sales. Stop beefing with artists and fans, ignore those who hate you for the sake of hating you. You are going far, you are only on album no 2, you can be celebrated even better by this nation but fix yourself.

Cassper Nyovest

Young lion, a success story every child from the hood can relate to and feel encouraged by. Dude you are on your first album but you made waves with two singles and went platinum in eight months which is a milestone in SA hip hop. I would like to applaud you for not giving up on your dreams and also continuing to push boundaries which have been set for SA Hip Hop by the industry. You have won people’s hearts and the industry has shown that they have your back and that’s a blessing. These are the issues I have with you. Stop playing the victim card all the time. – the industry has supported you. – Ignore AKA and do honour him for who he is in the industry. Now that you say you believe in God and you post scripture on your timeline and say God is good more often, more is expected of you. – Your humility shouldn’t be questioned by your contradictions. – Stop subtly inciting beef, whether it’s you boasting about how much you earn (Which is not Christ like) or you saying you are biggest Motswako artist ever when someone mentioned Khuli, HHP and Tuks (where is the humility?) – If you want to emulate Christ and for the world to take your faith seriously then you better get your game up bro.

I know Jesus loves you the way you are but I’m talking to a Christian so I can be as real as I can be so people won’t think Christianity is a joke. – I would like you to invest time in growing as a Christian and understand the true meaning of Christianity. – God is good yes but he has beef with crude Language or treating His daughters like whores in your music. – He has beef with you making money a god and boasting about it. – He has beef with a lot of things we think its okay to do but He is a MERCIFUL God and He wants you to use your platform wisely. I’m not saying I’m perfect, no one is. But continue to inspire our youth and start desiring God truthfully and stop beefing with any man and most important God.

All love

Delorean Exposed: The fake artist known for stealing music and conning people

Delorean

I am usually a person who likes to listen to new music, I am that type that will search the internet for new music from unknown artists, cause I don’t really like listening to mainstream music that much.

So last year while I was searching and looking for songs that I can download from the internet, I came across Nuk Official (Fedarro’s nephew) as a result that led me straight into discovering Fedarro’s music, and I fell in love with it and I started following the dude (Fedarro) on social media.

This year as I was searching the internet, I saw this other so-called artist known as Delorean, when I went into his SoundCloud page to my surprise all the stuff that he had there was the same as that of Fedarro’s. I got confused and I thought maybe Fedarro was the one stealing the songs cause this dude seems huge I mean on Facebook that time he had round about 800 000 likes and was verified as well as on twitter, but knowing Fedarro would never steal someone’s else music, I decided to dig a little bit deeper into the situation, and I can testify now and say that really this Delorean guy is a talentless artist who steals music from Fedarro and pretends as if it’s his.

This guy not only steals music from Fedarro, but he is also conning people through his MCA scam, promising people loads of money if they sign-up. To really show that this guy is fraud he never responds to Fedarro’s call of producing his own trackouts of the tracks he claims are his.

Fedarro Music

Let the be justice for Fedarro.

Tips for Growing your Youtube Audience

Online video content is quickly becoming THE #1 form of mass media outreach.  According to their own stats, YouTube sees more than 300 hours of video uploaded per minute, and Facebook has literally billions of video shares each day.

Growing your YouTube audience is a highly effective  way of spreading word of your music, but it’s about more than just making a great music video.

Top Tips For Expanding Your YouTube Outreach

1 – You don’t need a huge budget.

It’s easy to think of a music video as a huge, elaborate production… but it doesn’t have to be.  Just as one example, there is this guy known as Jay Mokopo who likes to remix songs of popular artists, that guy always does music videos when he releases his tracks and they’re of quality, but I believe he doesn’t spend too much in making them, as a matter of fact you can even make a video of yourself singing in studio and still get a couple of views on Youtube, it doesn’t really matter how you do it, what’s important is that atleast you must have two to three music videos that are on Youtube.

2 – Make interview spots.

This is a great all-around tool in an indie musician’s video arsenal.  Find someone who can act as an interviewer, and film a 5-minute clip that mimics the format of similar spots on MTV Base or Channel O.  It allows your act to tell their story in their own words, in a short, easily-digestible format.

(Also you can send us your videos (interviews) so that we can share it on our ever increasing Youtube channel).

These can also do double or triple-duty.  Besides gaining shares on YouTube, they can also go into your media portfolio or even potentially be aired on TV.

3 – Invite audience participation.

Don’t forget to get your fans involved!  Invite them to submit, say, pictures or videos of your recent shows, so that the material can be edited together into a new video.  If you give credit at the end to all of your volunteer camera-operators, they’ll be sharing the results -and your music- with all their friends.

Or get more creative!  Anything that involves your fans will likely pay off in shares.

Breaking into the Hip Hop Indie Scene

Indie musicians trying to make it in Hip Hop face an uphill battle. It’s a huge genre, and arguably over – saturated cause everyone wants to be a “rapper” these days, so standing out is difficult. But we have a few tips for those who feel the call of the beat!

hip-hop2

1 – Keep spreading those mixtapes.

Seriously, a mixtape is still one of the best ways to get noticed, even if you’re not actually using tape anymore. Having a mix fall into the hands of a producer is still possible in hip-hop, and the ranks of current hot artists are filled with those who first got noticed through a tape.

2 – Talk to terrestrial radio stations

In the rush to put your material online, don’t forget about your local media! If there are still radio stations in your area doing their own programming, try to make some contacts with their DJs or program directors. A local radio hit is very often a stepping stone to a wider notice.

3 – Be Local and Personal

Hip-hop allows more opportunity for personal exploration of what life is like in a particular city. try to engage real life scenarios in your lyrics as well, the personal or local touch can go a long way here.

4 – Make friends.

Arguably, the most important word for getting noticed in music these days is “feat.” Get on good terms with other artists in your area, and always be ready for a collaboration… even if it’s unpaid.

Plus, of course there is not telling which indie musicians might “make it big” first. If the spinning wheel of fortune lands on one of your friends before you, they could become your own path to the big leagues. Look to tour with other artists, and don’t turn down opportunities to be an opening act if they come.

5 – Diversify your sound

arguably the biggest problem among independent artists in Hip-hop is how generic so many of their tapes are. However you do it, add some spice to your sound that distinguishes it from all the others.

Hope these tips will help you in making informed decisions with your musical career!
