Upcoming Artist & Growing Their Fanbase

In this part of the world, most upcoming Artist are mentally lazy and very impatient, they want everything to roll in very fast and not put in the required energy to grow their fanbase. Some even go as far as buying followers on social media just to look a bit successful. Most of our Artist are living a life of deception just to fit into the set industry standards.
Original Artists understand what it means to start from the scratch and build loyal following. Most of these followers connect to their music and follow up with the entire growth process of the brand .
