In a move to eradicate music piracy a new online digital music platform known as Maluso Music has been created.
Maluso music will allow musicians in different countries to sell their music on the platform.Countries like Zambia, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Tanzania and Zimbabwe will sell their music on the platform.
According to managing director,Mike Mkali the platform was created with intention to curb piracy and grow the music industry.
Owned by a Malawian company Raymka Group, Maluso Music aims to reach the rest of Africa by 2020 and is one of the fastest growing online platforms for selling and buying music, according to its website.
“Maluso has an internal banking system that gives artists access to track their sales,” Mkali wrote on Facebook. “Artists will be paid through mobile money or bank accounts. Songs can be bought using 14 international cards and mobile money through a multinational system that will integrate mobile money systems without direct integration.”
Maluso Music said on its website that the service would “gives artists statistics of how their music is performing and on the number of subscribers and downloads. Through their [artists’] account they can write and receive messages from their distributor and Maluso Administrator”.
“Every song uploaded or updated will still have to be verified by the distributor that the artist is registered to before they go public. In cases where the artist has issues with the distributor, a complaint can be filed to the Maluso Administrator via a message in the artist’s respective account,” Reads a post in part.
