UPCOMING NIGERIAN MUSICIANS HAVE AN INDIGENOUS MUSIC CLOUD OVER SOUND CLOUD TO PUSH OUT THEIR ART
Prior to this article, we talked about how streaming was undoubtedly the future of the music industry and the panacea for artists unfair treatment. There is no such thing as "too many songs" no room for arguments. MusicCloud has launched in Nigeria to allow users discover, stream, download and share music from upcoming indigenous artistes.
Launched 3 months ago, the platform was created for artistes to showcase their work and offer a whole world to music addicts. It allows artistes to sign up, create a profile and upload their music. A fun user experience is ensured with access to works from Nigerian DJ's and artists by using the site's "Discover" function and rather than come up to the platform whenever you want new music in your playlist, you get notified via sms about new content, great right?
With strong competition as soundcloud, and the fact that it basically offers the same purpose which is mainly streaming; why the advent in the first place and why should we make the switch despite the locality of the platform?
With their just 3-month-old platform and over 2000 registered users, plans are already in motion to take the platform first across Africa and then globally with increased user base, artists portfolio, and employing consumer insight to constantly ensure excellent user experience through one of such ways as offering subscriptions that tally with content provided.
