Your fans don’t (really) listen to music anymore

TR Majaya

You’d think they’d be listening wouldn’t you? The truth is music listening habits have changed and they have done so drastically. With that it also means music is changing. Here is something to get the wheels turning: in the 80s, the average time before you heard the vocals on any pop song was 23 seconds. Today it’s just 5 seconds. …

Zombie Xplorers – UFO (2018) ALBUM REVIEW

TR Majaya

I went into this review blind. Firstly because I had no idea who Zombie Xplorers were but they reached out and said, “‘Hey, we have an album out and we would love it if you review it.” I thought why not? I can tell you they are from Namibia. So here we go with a review of their album Unidentified …

When The Music Isn’t Paying The Bills?

TR Majaya

Many creatives have been here before. No gigs. ‘Exposure’ gigs. No money. No food. Nothing.

Cassper Nyovest is a household name in the African Music Industry. He commands respect. You’d think it’s all about music but he is also a very smart business man.

Mr Eazi gave us one of the biggest African Music projects of 2018 and is considered one of the biggest artists in Africa.

Sho Madjozi – Limpopo Champions League (2018): Album Review

TR Majaya

Sho Madjozi is one of the most lovable creatives in South Africa (and Africa) as an actress, musician, presenter, cultural and fashion icon. She broke into the musical limelight barely 2 years ago featuring on Okmalumkoolkat’s ‘Gqi’ and the ever popular Dumi Hi Phone with PS DJs. Given her phenomenal rise, I was looking forward to her debut project and …
