In an era where everyone is planning to go digital like the association of Uganda Traditional Healers had promised, the Ugandan music industry has followed the suit by launching Sauteez , which is a Ugandan Music streaming App.
Sauteez App was unveiled on Monday evening at an event held at the Square that was attended by many stake holders in the music industry including artistes, Producers & media personalities.
According to Julius Kyazze, the Sauteez Business Development manager confirmed to us that, it took two years to develop the app and it is aimed at helping musicians and content producers earn more from their craft.
“Artistes are famous, but not as rich as they should be. This is an opportunity to make things better for them by helping them earn more and on their terms.” He stated.
Commenting about the music streaming app, One of the top female artistes Juliana Kanyomozi revealed that it is a revolutionary app and this exactly what the industry needed.
“You cannot release music and then only wait to perform at a concert to earn from it. This is not sustainable because you eventually burn out. Such a development is what we needed,” She said. “We finally have a platform that benefits artistes by allowing them to earn more. For the first time when we do a song, we will just go home and watch money accumulate on our accounts.”
The music app, which is available on both App store and Play store, will give users exclusive access to a host of Ugandan songs and audio content. Users will have to pay a nominal fee to download music on the app.
