Veteran actor Jasen Mphepho shares thoughts on struggling artists

Briefly News spoke to Jasen Mphepho, actor and founder of the Jasen Mphepho Little Theatre who emphasised the importance of capacity building for both new and established artists, stating that talent alone is not enough.

The star also stressed the significance of etiquette, consistency, and knowing one's brand and audience. He said that artists should consistently create quality work, stay aware of new trends, and understand their audience's needs to maintain loyalty and success.

"I want to believe that each one of us has challenges that are unique to the other and so my response will be more of a blanket response which may or may not be true to everyone.
"First and for most, l believe that new and old artists need capacity building as talent alone will not take you further. Most artists take the risk of relying mostly on their talents and will not open up to capacity building opportunities, for example learning about copyright laws as these affect artists in a big way, we have seen many big artists falling victim to copyright ignorance.

"Artists should be aware of contractual obligations, especially fine print elements. Most have sold their lifetime careers through fine print ignorance. Etiquette behavior plays a big role in an artists development and consistency for audience building and loyalty.
"Lastly knowing your brand and knowing your audience, your audience knows you and are always looking forward to your next offering and they're the ones who say yes or no to your offering hence understanding their needs is essential. Consistency in creating quality and standard work for your audience and always being aware of new trends is key."
