DonLu’s win to help artists make money from streams

By Jeoffrey Mukubi

Namibia’s streaming website DonLu Africa recently scooped the Launch Namibia startup of the year award worth N$ 10 000 which the founder says will be used to enable music composers to benefit from their streamed music and so much more. 

Speaking to unwrap.online Llewellyn Adams says there will be more done in the months to come while mentioning a possibility of a mobile app for DonLu Africa after also scooping an award for being the best startups in the country. 

“I’ll add to what we already have so that we can pay for the mobile app as well as a few other things which will mean we can implement new features which will see our artists get paid more from the platform,” he said.

DonLu Africa is a platform where one can stream, download and buy Namibian Music. This streaming site was started by Llewelyn Adams back in 2017 and it has seen rapid growth over the years.

 DonLu Africa does bi-monthly payouts directly to the accounts as provided by the artists where the artist gets 85 % and DonLu Africa taking 15% profit share split, with the artists taking 85% of the profits.

To date, DonLu has over 5 million music streams since it’s inception and its services are available in Angola, Zambia and South Africa.

DONLU FOR THE WIN: Artists can expect to get more from DonLu.
