1050 tracks on the website, from 165 artists and 56 albums!
The site, created in 2017 with the aim of making local music accessible worldwide, Donlu Africa has done more than its aims and provided a platform for local musicians to grow.
It is indeed a good day for the local music industry as one of the first proudly Namibian online music streaming platforms has reached a milestone of having 1 million views.
“It has a made a significant difference in the lives of the musicians, as their music is now available on a proudly Namibian site, that at the same time live up to International standards. Also with artists entering awards like the NAMAs that have used the site as a reference in terms of verification of release dates,” said the founder Llewellyn Adams.
Since its inception, so much has been to improve the navigation on the site for both artists and users. For one, Donlu has to improve the user experience on the site and as such have introduced custom user playlists as well as a history feature where users are able to see all recently played tracks.
“In terms of sales, we haven’t had too many, we are looking at making the payment methods more convenient for the end user and as such are in talks with various stakeholders to make it possible. I cannot give away too much regarding that right now, but all will prevail soonest,” he said.
To date, Donlu Africa has 1050 tracks on the website, from 165 artists and 56 albums.
