Local musicians have for a long time been exploited with their music downloaded and shared without anything coming their way.
This is despite the amount of time and money spent producing music only to realize nothing.
In light of this challenge, a music promotion company Mumhanzi Media has extended an invitation to all artists to submit their music for consideration and listing on Zim Music Store.
263Chat caught up with Co-Founder and Director Levi Mumhanzi who said;
“The younger genres such as Hip Hop and Dance hall have been the most affected. The reasons behind this are beyond the scope of this release.
“We are excited to extend an invitation to all artists to submit their music for consideration and listing on Zim Music Store. Our team of developers and digital marketers have been planning and working on this for a while now. Our goal is to make it easier for fans across the nation and the world to access music, and pay artists for it.”
Zimbabwe Music Store is a modern music platform that allows artists to submit and list their music on the website for free or for sale.
“How much you want to sell your music for, or to whom is left entirely up to you. We work on an advisory basis with all artists that come onto our platform.
“So far we have worked with GZE, Asaph, Mariachi Mzukuru, Fun_F, Buffalo Souljah to name but a few. Our digital marketing team works to make your and your brand more visible online. We always start by capturing your vision from you to make sure we embrace the ethos and become worthy representatives of it. We work together with artists to research and advise them as to how they can best implement marketing based on their targeted market,” added Levi.
