We have warriors like Hard Kaur, Miss Pooja, DJ Rekha, DJ Kayper – but more women need to step up in the scene, or better yet quit hooking up with “douche bag” producers (quoting my good friend Niku from Bol Punjab De) In the last 10 years, being in the scene, I’ve seen A LOT of women come and go. Back in the day, there would be parties, and a girl would have this hot single – she would rock the crowd. The next thing I know that hot single becomes a one hit wonder. Sad to say, I would round of maybe half of these so called producers don’t want to produce hits, they just want to take the women to bed and give them “hits” it’s desperate, it’s pathetic and it bothers me.

Girls, hold your ground – if something is “too good to be true” in most cases it probably is.

Study the scene, get to know the producers work before you get screw ball dreamy look in your eyes – thinking “he’s got my interest at heart” remember it’s OK to reject a producer/manager

Have more than one track under your belt – we love singles, but there’s a demand for albums – the fans want you to stick around

Don’t become a sample, become your own person

The kiss of death is when you start DATING your producer or manager – bad bad bad – don’t go there – if romance sparks – keep him as a boyfriend and find another manager. If he starts throwing a fit, reconsider even keeping him as a boyfriend, remember you need all the support you can get. Keep the negative energy out and drop the cry baby.

Imitation maybe the form of flattery, but it gets old QUICK – so stick to your true sound – don’t copy others

Find a mentor – don’t hate on other women – a woman mentor who is successful could give you some key pieces of advice (it’s worked for me in the media industry – I still contact my mentor when i feel stuck – she’s become my life long friend)

The scene is male dominated, however don’t let that discourage you, train yourself to LEARN everything, the more you know the more you can adapt, you might even consider being your OWN manager. Don’t go in the scene with tunnel vision
