Olisa Adibua to Host Spinlet Digital Radio Hour on The Beat 99.9fm
Supporting the importance of digital music platform Spinlet’s positive influence and African growth story, Nigeria’s Olisa Adibua is set to host a new show on The Beat 99.9fm. Launching on Tuesday 15th October 2013, ‘The Spinlet Digital Radio’ hour will heat the airwaves between 17H00 and 18H00 each Tuesday.
Showcasing local talent and promoting the top downloaded tracks of the week, the show will also invite artists into the studio on the last Tuesday of every month to perform their music live to the listeners.
Adibua is championing the digital music revolution for many reasons and is excited about his association with Spinlet. A long time anti-piracy campaigner, Adibua, says: “Digital music has the potential to legitimize the music and entertainment industry here in Nigeria and on the continent. It acts as a beacon of hope for artists across all music genres – the more people download through professional portals like Spinlet, the more music artists can be paid ensuring that the music industry itself can grow and sustain itself. ”
However, seeing artists get what they really deserve is not the only driving force for this Nigeria’s favourite entertainment entrepreneur to support the show, it’s about being in touch with the way things are done now. “Consumers are driving the demand supply chain and the playlists – they listen to what they want, when and how they want it these days and as radio presenters and producers, we need to be mindful of this power of choice” stated Adibua.
