Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid is set to launch a music streaming app.
The “Joro” coroner made this announcement in an interview with Robert Bruce on United Kingdom radio station, Capital Xtra. He was asked what his future business plans were and he stated that he was working in partnership with Nigerian bank United Bank Africa (UBA) on the new streaming app.
Here is what he said;
“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.
“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.”
Recall that around July this year, UBA unveiled Wizkid as one of its brand ambassador.
Again, reports have it that during the Capital Xtra interview, Wizkid also revealed plans of organizing a talent hunt in Africa. In his words;
“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”
It is worthy to note that Wizkid holds the record of being the most streamed African artist with 4 billion streams, which cuts across streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Tidal, Deezer and SoundCloud.
We really can’t wait to see what he has for us this time around.
