Soundcloud Music Streaming Company Pays $1 Million To Artists, No Ghanaian Included

Posting on their official website, the Berlin-based company wrote of the news: "It’s been six months since we launched the On SoundCloud partner program, and it feels like a good time to look back at how far we’ve come."

  • Published:

Music-streaming service SoundCloud have announced that they've paid out $1 million (£650,000) to musicians, artists and labels since August 2014.

Posting on their official website, the Berlin-based company wrote of the news: "It’s been six months since we launched the On SoundCloud partner program, and it feels like a good time to look back at how far we’ve come."

"Since the launch last August, things have been growing fast. We’ve signed up over 100 Premier Partners and paid over $1 million in advertising revenue to partners including labels, audio partners and emerging artists."

The post continues: "What’s coming up? We got started with On SoundCloud in the US, but we’re aiming to begin bringing it to new territories later this year — stay tuned. We’ll also continue to add more Premier Partners as we go. We’re looking forward to the next steps of the On SoundCloud journey — and to having you along for the ride."

Late last year, SoundCloud announced that they were to launch a subscription-based service in early 2015, as well as the new creative project 'On SoundCloud'.

No official report have been given to territories in Africa. Soundcloud is hugely popular in Europe and the USA, and also some parts of Africa.

A fair number of Nigerian artistes use Soundcloud to host their material, with Bez, Cobhams, and a number of others choosing it.

If the SoundCloud partnership is extended to the country, it will join the growing movement of digital revenue generation  for our artistes and add more monetizable distribution options for Nigerian entertainers.
