Unlike the 1990’s our Musicians today are Privy to the Internet and the likes of Tidal, Spotify, iTunes and YouTube including others. Hence how one utilizes this various forms of streams to make income is another aspect to the equation.
One person however to take advantage of this Internet Music Streams is our own Mr Eazi, who shot to fame from Ghana with his Hit Track “Bankulize” according to the latter if someone told him he can make over a Million American Dollars from Internet Music Streams in 2015, he wont have believed hence making it clear he made over a Million Dollars from Internet Music Streams alone excluding Paid Shows and Ambassadorial deals.
If someone had told me in 2015 that it was possible for an African Artist making African music to generate over 1million us dollars in streaming only revenue i would not have believed!!

In Ghana however, the case is different we have the likes of Stonebowy, Sarkodie, Shatta and Co always lamenting about how Music in Ghana is not Lucrative and not attractive financially! Well Perhaps they should be schooled by Mr Eazi on how to make a Million Dollars with their Talent and Craft and stop the incessant complains…
