Making music is hard. It’s not the God-given talent that some people like Divine Mahara and Zolani Mohale have. It’s the other stuff that comes with it. The sales. The HR. The bookings. The admin.

Entrepreneurship is possibly the ultimate form of creativity. In this heartfelt and passionate recipe, Divine Mahara gives us a glimpse into the purity of expression, the craft behind the art.
