Business is booming for both up and coming, and mainstream Ghanaian artistes – per my observations on their online activities and presence.
It’s been another great year so far, with streaming rising and running as fast Usain Bolt’s lightning feet.
Just like YouTube, iTunes, Tunecore and Spotify, Ghanaian artistes have taken SoundCloud streaming platform serious. It shows their understanding of the digital space and the many possibilities which lie in the space.
SoundCloud, an online audio distribution platform that enables its users to upload, record, promote, and share their originally-created sounds, is one of the streaming tools most Ghanaian artistes use to distribute their contents.
This year has been good for Guilty Beatz, Kwesi Arthur, KiDi, Kuami Eugene, Adina, Ponobiom and other artistes. Their songs are getting huge numbers and I can’t hide from you.
