A popular Russia music aggregator, Music Services Centre has recently signed a contract with The Gambia’s Honorary Consul to Russia, Lamin Manga in Moscow to give Gambian artistes an exposure to the Russian market.
Music Services Centre was principally dealing with Russian content and through this new development will open up a chapter for African artistes to have their songs bought digitally through their platform.
The Russia’s Honarary Consul Manga stated,” It is an excellent platform and opportunity for many Gambian artistes from the golden era to the new catalogues to have our content exposed to this huge market. Gambians can also download local content from the platform from anywhere in the world, so artistes can start to enjoy the fruits of their labour.”
Natalia Khomchenko, the Director General of the group said, she is very pleased with the starting of this relationship.
“We believe that there is a lot of new potential in African music in the Russian market and of course worldwide markets. Thanks to digital technologies and the development of social networks, people are open to discover new and different music. We are excited to be with Mr. Manga to open up an African chapter into the Russian market, just like Peter the first who opened up Europe to Russia. We look forward to a strong and long term partnership through this endeavor. Artistes in Gambia will be invited to sign up to the platform shortly,” she stated.
