An unsigned artist, unsigned band or independent artist is a musician or musical group not under a contract with a record label.
Artists earn most of their revenue from streaming, syncs, and airplay in the form of royalties. In regards to Spotify, they distribute about half of its revenues to record label partners and only about 10% to 15% to the music publishers and songwriters.
If you value creative freedom over anything else in your music, then stick to the independent route.
Robbie Malinga Jnr is unlike most 20-year-olds in South Africa. Malinga leads a lavish lifestyle, splurging on designer clothes from high-end brands, such as Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci, luxury cars…and expensive jewellery.

Mally recently surpassed 3 million streams on all digital platforms as an independent artist and that’s certainly impressive putting to thought that some artists that are under labels can’t even reach that magnitude . The rapper is certainly going places with production from multi platinum powerhouses like Chase The Money and Pyrexwhippa from the United States he’s surrounded by greatness .
Statically at his age he’s one of the few to be on this level in terms of numbers musically in the whole of the Southern Hemisphere independently .
We Have to acknowledge such greatness.
