It feels like 2021 starts today Monday, Feb 1st. Last year tested our resilience, agility, and faith at FEZAH. Three members of our team got COVID. We recovered and delivered on our vision and mission; better economics for musicians both online and offline. See highlights ↓
1. Startup Investment
Afrique Créative, backed by the French Development Agency invested over EUR 100,000 into FEZAH mostly for product development as well as strengthening #innovation and impact. Indeed, we became a more innovative and more impactful #startup building tools for the live music industry.
2. Income for Creatives
FEZAH cautiously created work and income for over 100 creatives in 2020. Our improved gig formula now doubles a musician’s take home on every gig they do through fezah.com. Long story on how, but it really works and smart musicians love it.
3. CNN Inside Africa
FEZAH was featured on CNN in December 2020. We were fast to adapt to the COVID reality introducing the https://fezah.live pay-per-view online concert platform in less than a month after Uganda’s initial lockdown. Watch the interview at https://youtu.be/rsa584JAhTg.
4. Looking Ahead
After January’s political drama, social media ban, and internet shutdown in Uganda, FEZAH’s got some exciting new tools we’ve been building for the live music industry. Let the year begin!
