Years ago the music industry in Ghana and Africa was booming, the musicians were making profits out of their work through retail music shops at places like kantamanto and Kajetia until the emergence of massive usage of internet in the Ghanaian populace, which saw the business of online music sites. Currently musicians make virtually nothing from sales of their songs since almost every song is up for free download. Although some musicians make money from iTunes we must admit they make little unlike foreign acts since iTunes was not built with the African setting in mind since majority of music lovers do not have credit card to purchase songs, Africans should build what technologies to suit themselves.
Meet uMusic under the url www.umusiconline.com , Africa’s Premier music store built with the African setting in mind with technologies that makes music promotions easy for the management of the artist to maximize profit of their work.
