Mukuru, the mobile money transfer company has an initiative that helps grassroots artists get a few dollars for their efforts.
The website Mukuru Music has a simple interface were you can view artists by map or thier names. You can pay for a song an msot songs cost 90 cents! This is a good development by Mukuru for local artists
Hoiwever, you may be a little bit disappointed as there are less than twenty artists right now and these are less known artists!
For instance there was only one artists from Bulawayo.
I think Mukuru should rope in even popular artists like Macheso so that even those in the diaspora can benefit from the music.
They can also integrate the feature in their recently launched app.
Hope this platform grows beyond measure so that artists get a few dollars for their work in this world were piracy is rife
