Each passing day, the Nigerian music industry is continuously expanding. This increase in the number of musical talents that are being discovered has created a need for a platform that offers Nigerian musicians an avenue to connect with a wide range of audiences across the globe. Spinlet has taken the initiative to create a service that offers Music lovers an opportunity to get Nigerian music directly to their mobile phones and connect with their favorite Nigerian Artistes.
Spinlet is an international digital music download service which was founded in 2006 in Finland but made a debut into the Nigerian Market in May 2012.
Ever since its launch in the Nigerian Market, Spinlet has gathered over 500, 000 subscribers who have access via mobile to over a million songs from all genres of local and international music.
Aside from providing a digital music platform, the brand also provides advertising and performance opportunities to selected artistes and sponsors a show known as “Industry Night” which gives upcoming artistes an opportunity to showcase their musical talents to fans and peers.
Speaking at a Press Conference that was held on the 16th of April 2013 at S&S Hotel in Lagos, Chief Marketing Officer, Mark Redguard explained the purpose of Spinlet in Nigeria, was to connect Nigerian Artistes with a global audience and to create a new digital platform for distribution and generation of revenue. He also emphasized the brand’s commitment to supporting upcoming talents, and providing them with a platform to showcase their work
With exciting opportunities for Nigerian artistes and music labels to connect with a global fan base, sell and market their music and track their web sales directly, it’s no surprise that over 300 Nigerian artistes are already on board the Spinlet platform.
Spinlet plans to launch its services in Ghana, Uganda, Kenya and South Africa by the end of 2013.
The Spinlet App is currently available to android, symbian and blackberry devices. For more information on this service please visit www.spinlet.com
