Muzos.Live is a subscription based streaming platform dedicated to market, promote and sell music, art, merchandise, art photography, instruments, music lessons and other selected creative products to a global market.
Our team consists of I.T developers, artist relations, marketers, business development management and international music and arts aficionados that represent Muzos.Live in Africa, Great Britain, Europe, The Americas, Asia and Oceania.
In response to Covid-19, a network of musicians, media personalities, business people, cultural activists and music lovers from across the globe, joined hands to help those in need in South Africa’s music industry by forming muzosdirect.com. This was a short-term solution during the most difficult times.
As a result, we created a unique business model that enhances the lives of South African artistes and creates capacity through joint ownership and a profit-sharing system.
Artistes on our platform receive a majority on the income of their sales, and a pro-rata share of half of our business.
