Africa ’s first legal download vehicle is setting sail in Senegal so local maestros can make good in music industry, free from internet piracy. With online speeds too stunted to stream, the launch of MusikBi is a welcome note on Senegal’s score.
Finally, artists from all over Africa as well as international names have a promotion platform and possibly, a link to livelihood, with the ability to keep up to 60% of their proceeds. Currently, there are almost 200 artists who have signed to MusikBi, including international artist Youssou N’Dour.
A song will set you back the equivalent of 50-85 US cents a pop and is accessible to listeners in remote areas who can download via phone credit, text or PayPal. There’s no need for a bank to get bopping.
