MUM to Organize Sensitization Meeting
Musicians Union of Malawi (MUM) says it is yet to organize training campaign to allow artists to know how their songs will be uploaded on malankiemusic.com.
MUM President Gloria Manong'a has confirmed to Zodiak Online on Saturday saying all is set for the training which will start in this month.
"We will organize sensitizing meetings soon this month in our chapters on how musicians can be able to upload their songs," Manong'a said.
Manong'a believes that sensitizing musicians in advance has potential to equip them with relevant skills on how the website will be operating.
In a separate interview on Saturday, Director of Malankie music.com Malankie John Gondwe says they are waiting for MUM to organize sensitizing meetings to start receiving applications from artists.
"We will be able to receive applications from artists after sensitization meetings," Gondwe said.
In month of August this year Malankie Music.com signed memorandum of understanding with Musicians Union of Malawi, which among other things agreed, the artists will be pocketing 60 percent of total sales using the website.
