on

Boomplay, Africa’s largest music streaming and download service, has partnered with Hitlab to debut a music competition in Africa for upcoming music artistes dubbed Digital Emerging Artiste Showcase (DEAS). The competition offers emerging artistes in Africa a recording contract with an international music label, partnership with Boomplay, an opportunity to be mentored by award-winning singer, rapper, songwriter  and  producer, Akon, among other exciting prizes.

The Digital Emerging Artist Showcase (DEAS) is the first international competition for emerging artists with a fully digital application process. Artists can submit their songs for analysis through Hitlab’s artificial intelligence, Digital Nuance Analysis (DNA) technology, which ranks submitted songs to showcase their potentiality in an international market. Metrics such as production (beat, mastering), are considered in the fully-digital analysis.

In a statement to newsrooms,  Tosin Sorinola, Artist and Media Relations Director for Boomplay, said, “DEAS has launched at a time when the need for improved digitization of music processes is at an all-time high. What Hitlab hascreated here is novel and it transcends what is obtainable as of now. We are excited to play a crucial part in propelling emerging artists to the global stage through mentorship opportunities and securing partnerships with top producers and music executives globally. I urge emerging artists to take advantage of this once-in a lifetime opportunity.”

To submit songs, interested artists will have to part with GHc 6 ($0.99) for 1 song, GHs 23 ($3.99) for 5 songs and GHs 57 ($ 9.99) for 15 songs. All songs submissions must be made via the link https://deas.hitlab.com/?ref=BOOMPLAY.

Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ tops Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra & iTunes

Published

on

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
