Spotify to finally launch in Nigeria and 80+ more countries worldwide

Published

on

Most foremost music streaming platform, Spotify finally to launch their ever evolving market in Nigeria and this can only mean better exposure and more revenue (income wise) to artistes in Nigeria.

Spotify which launched in Sweden on the 7th of October 2008 offers customers a 6-month trial (with ads) before they (the customers) begin paying for ads-free streaming and downloading of music contents and podcasts.

Although as at right now, Spotify cost a jaw-dropping $9.99 per month (in the country where it exists) which equals a sum of almost ₦4,000 (3,800) but that might get reduced in order for them to compete with the most favoured music streaming platform in Nigeria – Apple Music – which charges just ₦900 per month for an individual subscription.

Spotify’s PR had Mr. Eazi and Burna Boy run the advertisement and social media awareness on their soon to launch app for the Nigerian market launch.

Spotify also offers artiste the cpm range value between $3 to $5 which approximately lies between ₦1,400 to ₦1, 900 per 1000 streams, giving artistes the option of generating income as they release music for listener’s pleasure.

Nigeria will not be the only African country benefitting from Spotify launching in new countries as Mali, Niger, Togo, Zimbabwe, Uganda and many more.

A date is not set for the launch of Spotify in Nigeria but according to the information put out in social media, we know it is only going to take “few days” before the dream becomes a reality.

Additional, Spotify gives podcasters the opportunity to make a living by uploading such contents on the streaming service. Spotify does this through Anchor, the most used podcast app, acquired by Spotify in 2019 for an estimated amount of $14M.

Spotify not only comes with an easy to use user interface but helps in distributing audio contents uploading on it to other streaming services, thereby making it easier for content creators to have a wide range of audience while providing a personal monthly and a year-round wrapped breakdown of music listened to by a customer.
