MTN Nigeria’s dedication and support have significantly contributed to the remarkable growth in artist royalty payouts witnessed this year. Mdundo’s transparent royalty payment practices, combined with Telco collaboration, enable accurate tracking and meticulous accounting of artist earnings.

Together we have launched a very successful music service for the African mass market that provides an alternative to illegal downloads. This plays a significant role in growing the earnings for musicians across Africa.

Looking ahead, we eagerly anticipate the continued collaboration with MTN Nigeria, as we collectively strive to empower artists, foster a thriving music ecosystem, and unlock new avenues of growth and prosperity within the Nigerian music industry.

Once again, we extend our deepest appreciation to MTN Nigeria for their exceptional contribution to this year’s artist payout and their enduring commitment to the advancement of Nigerian music.
