The Spotify international streaming site recently announced that it will broaden its horizons and enter into African and Asian countries which included Namibia.
The online streaming service launched its services in 85 new markets, and will also roll out 36 new languages on the platform. The news was announced at its online event, “Stream On”.
Today, over a million artists have since signed up for music enthusiasts, local and international to stream and purchase their creative work.
Although mainstay Namibian musicians are on Spotify, the change will help them localize and monetize their streams from Namibia and not South Africa or Nigeria like it is currently done.
In Africa Spotify will now include Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Chad, Comoros, Côte d’Ivoire, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eswatini, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
