What Shitana’s victory means for the music industry- Antonio

Antonio’s views on Shitana’s victory case.

Last week news broke that for the first time since 1998, a pirated music trader was stricken with a fine for selling duplicated CD’s. The case that has been in works since 2017 finally came to an end with the trader Petrus Immanuel paying a fine of N$ 4000 or will serve six months in jail.

The news has been well received by Nascam, public members, artists and particularly music activist Antonio of Antonio Arts. The advocate for original purchase of arts couldn’t contain his excitement and told unwrap.online that the win is one for the books. Antonio has been actively celebrating the win on his social mediums saying its time artists and their work are respected and purchased rightfully. He further said the win means a lot for the industry going forward including progress.

“This means massive progress for us. It is only the beginning and I will continue doing my best through various service stations for original music distribution. This is will help us out an end to piracy.”

Antonio has made provision through a deal with service stations including shell, Engine and Total across the country for people to purchase local music. This has made music available and close to people as they do not have to travel to Windhoek where most of the music is sold.
