Spinlet support of NEA, expands scope, caters for African music

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Spinlet, Nkiru Balonwu, has said that the company’s support of the Nigerian Entertainment Award (NEA) is meant to expand its scope and outlook whilst bringing diverse catalogue of music from Africa and the rest of the world to the US ITRealms reports.

“Spinlet’s catalogue of African and international music is proving popular on a global basis. Digital distribution has made it easier for international audiences to discover and enjoy music from anywhere in the world. We are seeing increasing interest for artists and albums outside of the mainstream, and are very proud to be helping audiences to discover new musical experiences,” said Balonwu.

“The future of music is mobile and also global as we continue to see consumers increasingly pull in tracks from artists based all around the world. It’s time to support the continent”, she added.

Recently the New York, US-based Spinlet - the largest provider of quality music on the go in Africa, ITRealms gathered, supported the NEA by hosting an exclusive gala for stakeholders in the Diaspora. The Spinlet and NEA exclusive gala which took place at the NYU Skirball Center for Performing Arts in Manhattan, United States, celebrated the best and brightest that Nigerian and African music has to offer.

The gala which also brought together over 60 US-based African Entertainment promoters, media, influencers and other entertainment business executives provided an opportunity to welcome guests to the Awards, networking opportunities for entertainment executives and increase conversation on the evolution of the African music industry.

According the press release available to ITRealms, Tope Esan, NEA‘s Executive Producer, said the gala affirms the organization’s mission of creating awareness for African entertainment and promoting Nigerian artistes on the international stage.

Spinlet is the number one music streaming service in Africa - and for African music - with 1.7m global downloads to date. With a growing catalogue of music from different genres and different territories around the world, Spinlet offers a diverse mobile music offering across the globe
