To be honest, I haven’t bought music online before. But the only incentive for me to do so is organisation. I do not want to see notjuskok.com as song art or hear it on the track. I want to easily put a song on my device and have it organised properly under the right artist, album, genre etc.
I have mostly foreign songs and some years back I spent hours reorganising my songs with special software just so my iTunes looked good! For album downloads however, organisation is less of an issue.
Now, I don’t know why MyMusic is already charging for music downloads, maybe they’re going revenue first which is strange for a music related startup trying to disrupt. I don’t know when they started charging, but maybe they have enough data on hand to determine that this model will work for them. I do think a monthly unlimited plan is better though.
But why are there ads on the site ? Why would you sell music and still have ads ? Doesn’t seem right.
I think Spinlet and MyMusic should stop trying too hard to change consumer behaviour just yet. They should explore other options. Why can’t they offer up music for free and upsell tickets and merchandise ? Do Nigerian artists even have merch ?
Oh well, wish them luck.
