A top DSTV official has schooled Ghanaian musicians on how they can easily get their songs on the Trace Jama Channel.
Speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’ ‘DayBreak Hitz’ program which was monitored by zionfelix.net, the DSTV Official, Nii, explained musicians can upload their music through the Trace website.
“On the Trace website, there is a link that allows you to upload your music onto the platform,” he said.
Nii indicated that musicians have to go through some legal documentation to seal the deal.
He revealed a lot of musicians are having difficulties in understanding the nitty-gritty of the legal documentation.
“You are giving your content to someone but you still own the broadcast right to it, so you must seed part of that right to Trace that you can use it for one week, two weeks, one year or six years and it is all in that contract you are signing,” he explained.
Nii divulged some Ghanaian musicians’ challenge of getting their contents on this platform is because they do not appreciate the fact that these contracts have to protect them and the end contract.
He admitted that the contract may be lengthy, but they have to read as showbiz players because the devil is always in the detail.
Multichoice announced the preparation to launch a new music channel dedicated to Ghanaian music in 2020 last year.
