By Staff Reporter

Another streaming service has joined the midst of a very few proudly Namibian music streaming services and they also have an app to match.

Founded by Matthews Johannes in 2020, the PlayBit app already hosts over 100 local musicians that include the likes of Top Cheri, Exit, Young T, Tate Buti, Dice and KP illest and seems to be the first of its kind to protect local musicians from music pirates and allowing artists to gain revenue from it.

The app uses a token system where one can purchase tokens with a Visa or MasterCard for $1, $3 or $12. “If you don’t have tokens then the music will stop playing after one minute,” said PlayBit representative, Hosea Hamalwa.

According to Hamalwa the name PlayBit came after the put the word Play, which in their context refers to a media file played over an internet connection or offline and the word ‘Bit’ which is the smallest unit of data representing the 0s and 1s in a computer.

“Artists will be able to release their albums exclusively with PlayBit which will be available for Every PlayBit user. And they won’t be able to copy it in terms of duplicating music for no fee to other audiences,” Hamalwa said.
The app is available on various devices such as IOS, Android, Windows & MacOS.
