MusicZed is a Zambian music/video streaming and purchasing app dedicated for users to stream and purchase music created by Zambian and other African artists. The idea is for users to pay a membership fee in order to listen to music, and download music of their favorite artist. Also, an artist will have a platform to announce and upload content dedicated to fans e.g. Tour Dates, Live Performances, Album Launches and Listening Parties.
This will help artists and their fans have an online co-relation experience. The introduction of this app will reduce piracy concerns and illegal streaming methods to obtain music, because the musical content will not leave the app even if it is downloaded. The advantage of purchasing and downloading the music is that, the user will be able to listen to the music even without internet connectivity; meaning that, once a user buys music through our online payment system, it will be downloaded and stored on the app, ready to be listened to even if the user doesnt have bundles or airtime to surf the app online.
MusicZed has a number of Membership Plans that are beneficial to both, an Artist and a User. A regular User can subscribe to any plan of their choosing upon registration on the app, namely; Free Trial (7 Days), Individual Plan (1 Person for K50/Month), Family Plan (5 People for K150/Month) and 1 Year Plus Plan (1 Person for K600/Year). These Plans are not accessible to an Artist. The advantage of subscribing to any of these Plans is that, users will be able to stream music available on the MusicZed App. An Artist has a seperate plan called Artist Plan (K100/Year). This Plan is not acessible to a normal user. The advantage of subscribing to this plan is that, an Artist will be able to stream music available on the MusicZed App, as well as, upload UNLIMITED musical content such as Songs (Inclusive of Albums, EPs and Mixtapes), Videos and Events for a year; effective immediately after subscribing. MusicZed helps promote and sell music for Artists who provide consent to do so. For the benefit of an Artist or Record Label Management, a Song is sold at K10, a Video at K15 and an Album/EP/Mixtape at K100. For EVERY PURCHASE of a Song, Video or Album, an Artist or Record Label Management collects a Deserved Percentage Share of 60%, MusicZed collects a Deserved Perecentage Share of 35.5% and the Payment Gateway Company responsible for collecting online payments on behalf of MusicZed collects a Deserved Percentage Share of 4.5%. As an Artist or Record Label Management registers to be a member of MusicZed via the App, the system will prompt them to provide their Bank Account details, which will be stored in the MusicZed database system.The Bank Account details will be used as a reference guide when MusicZed deposits an Artist or Record Label Management's Deserved Percentage Share EVERY QUARTER of the year to their respective bank accounts.
