South African Record Labels Looking for Artists to SignLooking for South African record labels looking for upcoming artists to sign?

The music sphere of South Africa is thriving and affecting the entire continent.

With so many artists on the rise and young ones still breeding in their shells, the need for record labels to contain these artists can’t be overemphasized.

This is why the intent of this piece is to provide you the reader with some of the vibrant record labels in South Africa that are scouting for young artists to breed.

And it doesn’t matter if the artists are already established, he can still join these labels to shine better.

As the artists spring up, they have the talent, the fuel, and the drive to achieve great heights but they lack one thing – the professional standards to model after and the professional platform to stand on.

So it doesn’t matter how great the talent of an artist is.

It doesn’t also matter how skilled in lyrics or how electrifying the voice is if there’s no platform to stand and let the world see him shine, he rises to nowhere.

Record labels play an important role in the music industry of any clime.

They help artists gain the necessary recognition and rise to the zenith of their careers.

A record label helps in the promotion and marketing of an artist’s work.

They have links with prominent marketers and the connection with relevant brands to help an artist gain publicity.

Record labels are also involved in the scouting and breeding of talents.

If they aren’t scouting, they’re breeding the ones they’ve got already.

This helps an artist establish a firm standing in the industry.

Furthermore, record labels are involved in the copyrights of an artist.

I’m 20 years old ,i started loving music in 2009 and started writing in 2015 when i was doing my first year in High School. I started recording my first single in 2017 ,i really worked with many producers and artists since 2017.I sacrificed a lot in music because music is my life couldn’t buy shoes for myself but i had to go to joburg and record ,because of i wanted good quality cause if u have quality i can say u are safe.I would like to get signed one day and deliver the message to the black kids because i know that they need us,they need some who’s gonna heal them .My music it’s all about “LOVE” and “LIFE” I’m not perfect but i do give people what they want and need in that particular time.Some fan’s one’s said to me that”music is not my talent but it’s my gift”🇿🇦🙏💙😥those words really touched me even now I’ll never forget them.So far i have 2 EP’s and lotta Singles.

    Hi. My name is Shan, 28 years of age, from BBR. I love music with every piece of my bone. Although i like to do my own thing, it’s always being a dream to get signed and share my music with the world. I’ve written over a hundred songs in RnB, Pop, soul, and
    a few Christmas and Gospel songs. But i’m mostly RnB & Pop. I have no recorded tracks but I’m a very good writer. Preferably, i use the English language in all my songs. My number is 068 013 4939.
