Nigeran Musicians Finally Allowed To Freelance On Gemtracks Beats
Initially, the website was only open to North American and Europeans but has since been extended to include more countries to fulfil its new goal of including a more diverse pool of talents.
“One of the greatest things about the internet is that it can be used as a medium to meet other people to collaborate with,” Jesse told us. “I think this is a major aspect that would eventually reshape the music industry, which is why I decided to let Nigerians freelance on the site now.”
“Being a musician has allowed me to fly to many countries and meet people all over the world,” the DJ and technologist told us. “One thing I realized when I arrived into Nigeria is that there are many talented musicians that have yet to make names for themselves. I want to change this by giving them a way to make music with other artists overseas and pave their ways to recognition.”
Once registered, freelancers can create their own services where they can include the price and terms for the job they provide. If they wish to retain rights or credits to the song they make, they can do so too.
This means if the song somehow reaches to the chart in America, it could be a life-changing experience for the freelancer.
