In 2017, Chidi and Chika Nwaogu founded Publiseer to help African creatives monetise and promote their work.
The company has worked with over 7 000 creatives, including musicians, independent writers, filmmakers, and video game developers in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Egypt, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Togo.
The company also offers postproduction services, such as the remastering and editing of video and music before distribution.
Publiseer X Lazy Joy is expected to provide creators and authors with more exposure, especially on smartphones manufactured by Xiaomi, Vivo, Huawei, Oppo, Transsion and TCL.
In a statement seen by nowthendigital.com, CEO and co-founder Chidi Nwaogu said the partnership ‘brings us closer towards making our authors truly global’.
“brings us a step closer towards making our authors truly global. Authors on Publiseer don’t need to take any action to get their books on Lazy Joy. We will do that for them automatically.”
This move follows an announcement by Publiseer in April that it would start distributing its songs on social networking platforms such as Triller and Snapchat.
“Adding Triller and Snapchat to our list of music partners is something we’ve had in the pipeline for a long time now, and we’re happy to see where this milestone takes us,” Chidi Nwaogu said.
The service also distributes to Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora and Deezer, among others.
In New York, US, last week, Publiseer was accepted into the 2022 Starta Accelerator programme. This program provides tools to international startups to expand their market presence in the US while raising capital.
