The startup is looking to provide value for producers, artists and music lovers at an affordable rate.
The music sharing, streaming and distribution platform CakeTunes rebranded to bring more value to its clients consisting of emerging African artists and producers.
The startup which initially was focused on the Nigerian market is now expanding to other African countries like Ghana and Kenya based on demand.
CakeTunes recently launched an e-commerce platform on its site named Beatcore, for selling and buying beat. They are talking to producers with hopes of getting them to buy into the idea, and connect artists that could be interested in the instrumentals uploaded.
The platform which went live on August 26, 2017 as musiccloud.com.ng will also be selling audio ad spaces, sponsored music posts, hosting events and coming up as third party agents for artists who want to promote their music on radio, doing this at half the original cost price.
CakeTunes, currently a team of seven, houses the following units; sales, growth and partnership, branding, web development, customer service,
creative writing, sound engineering and social media.
It was founded by Ability Elijah (CEO) and co-founder, Light Nduka (Brand
developer), who both founded CakeTunes out of love for music.
