Namibia’s streaming website, DONLU Africa recently scooped the Launch Namibia startup of the year award worth N$10 000 which the founder says will be used to enable music composers to benefit from their streamed music and so much more.
Speaking to unWrap.online, Llewellyn Adams says more will be done in the months to come while mentioning a possibility of a mobile app for DONLU Africa after also scooping an award for being the best startups in the country.
“I’ll add to what we already have so that we can pay for the mobile app as well as a few other things which will mean we can implement new features which will see our artists get paid more from the platform,” he said.
DONLU Africa is a platform where one can stream, download and buy Namibian music. Llewelyn Adams started this streaming site back in 2015 and it has seen rapid growth over the past five years.
DONLU Africa does bi-monthly payouts directly to the accounts as provided by the artists where the artist gets 85% and DONLU Africa taking 15% profit share split.
To date, DONLU has over 1 million music streams since it’s inception and its services are available in Angola, Zambia and South Africa.
