How to upload songs on itunes – Distribute your music online and get paid

Get Paid For Your Music

Digital music distribution is flourishing now in this part of world.  

In 2015, digital music sales in Nigeria grossed over $43 million dollars as reported by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), an international audit company in Nigeria and they expect a growth of $28 million dollars by the end of 2017.

Firstly, i’m very impressed by this figure and I believe, this will only improve in the coming years as the number of smartphone users with internet access increases. 

I’m very excited about this and I bet you are too.

And if you are not?

Then you probably don’t understand the power of digital music distribution.


Yes bro, you read that right.

According to video director, Adasa Cookey, Wizkid in 2017 made over NGN72 million Naira from the streaming of two of his hit songs, “Come Closer” and “My love” on Spotify and youTube where the videos have been streamed more than 55 million times combined.

Also, according to Music Business Worldwide, American rapper, Drake has earned a total of NGN36 billion Naira from his songs on Spotify and iTunes combined.

in essence, people are cashing out by the second by selling their songs on the internet.

As an up and coming artists, blowing in the Nigeria music industry is difficult. so therefore even if you are making music, your creative work shouldn’t go in vain. That is why it is a great idea for you to sell your music online.

With great contents and good promotions, a select number of up and coming artistes earn between $200 to $800 per month from a host of these digital music distribution stores  and you’ll never know because it’s done on the low. While you’re busy begging for a show that will pay you like NGN10K.

Some smart Nigerian rising artists simply record their songs and distribute to these platforms and receive cool cash monthly.


How much will you make if you distribute your music online

Honestly speaking this is not fixed. so many factors like the quality of your song and the strength promotion. You do the maths, Each streaming platform varies slightly but on the average, they pay artistes as much as $0.05 per song play. Calculate this: if your song can accumulate just 10,000 plays, that is $0.05 x 5,000 plays = $250 dollars (NGN91500).

How cool is that?


More reasons why you should distribute your music online

Listen when you are not releasing your songs on Apple Music , Spotify, itunes, Deezer ans more like the big celebrities

People are going to pay less attention to you and see you as a low profile artist.

(You obviously don’t want this kind $hit happening to you)

I need you to do a little something for me, go on Instagram and check out the bio of popular musicians in your genre and see what they are all doing.

You are going to find them always releasing their songs on iTunes and they have some very good reasons why they are doing it:

  1. They are celebrities and they want CLASS – Apple music is the highest form of class and they don’t want to be seen in the same bracket as low profile artists.
  2. They make a lot of money from it ( when I say a lot, I mean A LOT OF MONEY)

And I know you probably may not make a whole lot if are just starting out.

But you can be assured of making something decent and gaining a lot of fanfare with our artists tools and support.
