Wizkid to launch music streaming app
Pop singer, Wizkid, has announced he would soon be launching a music streaming app.
The 29-year-old revealed in an interview with Robert Bruce on UK radio station, Capital Xtra, that he was working with United Bank for Africa (UBA) on the new streaming app.
“My team and I, we’ve been working so hard. I have this new streaming app that I’m about to launch right now in collaboration with United Bank for Africa. Those are my new partners,” he said.
“We intend to create a streaming platform for people to be able to market their music, put out their music and actually get revenue right into their pockets.”
The singer also said he had plans of organising a talent hunt show on the continent.
“We are working on a whole lot of stuff. We have a talent hunt we are trying to do back home. We’re going to go around and pick some of the best talents from every African country. Collaborate and help them build and see, whatever we can do for the culture,” Wizkid said.
The Ojuelegba singer recently released his much-publiclised single, ‘Joro’.
Wizkid is reportedly the most streamed African artiste with 4 billion streams across Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Tidal, Deezer, and SoundCloud.
