The platform stressed the management's decision to allow independent artists keep 75% of the proceeds through its “Fair Trade Streaming” agreement.
The development was recently made known to the public by the founder of the streaming service, Soltesh Iyere.
According to reports, the streaming service is ready to relaunch its digital music platform after it debuted one year ago.
In a recent chat with Iyere, 9janimi Channel has beefed up its services with trendy features to meet up with the growing demand for online music content.
“We needed to suspend our activities for a while to bring our subscribers and new users this mobile friendly platform. It is our desire to help the Nigerian government bring piracy to its knees and this is one of the ways we are contributing to the music industry. With our new platform, subscribers are assured of their privacy along with so many other exciting features we are bringing,” Iyere said.
Continuing, he said, 'the Media 360 Company, owners of 9janimi Channel, originally projected the streaming service as an alternative to the music industry through which they could directly distribute their music to music fans and lovers. 9janimi Channel offers two tiers for customers, and streaming on the Web and on iOS and Android.'
The management of the platform stressed payment of royalties to artistes saying the platform is an alternative to popular streaming services like Spotify, Middle East Anghami, Saavn and Apple Music.
With the new management of 9janimi, a local Yoruba phrase for ‘I Am Nigerian’, the platform lets independent artists keep 75% of the proceeds through its “Fair Trade Streaming” agreement.
