Gospel singer SK Blue has launched Sakata Mobi, an SMS service for his company, Sakata Media, backed by gospel musicians.
The service will offer download services for music by the 50 artistes signed to the service and personalised SMS messages to fans from the artistes.
SK said the service is different from others in the markets because they will be providing the artistes a schedule for download, to allow for accountability and transparency.
"Let's talk biz, let's talk money. Life ought to make economic sense. The reason we have gone gospel is because we are passionate about the genre and we also know the challenges you all go through as musicians to get your content out there and get paid for it," SK added addressing the artistes at the launch.
