Jekajo is a new music discovery site that let’s you discover Nigerian music and helps upcoming Nigerian musicians promote their music.
Founded by Adim Ofunne and Obilo Nwokogba, the same guys behind Naijalingo, Jekajo is a product of their love for music and search for a reliable local music site.
Pronounced ‘jeh-kah-joe’, the name of the site is a yoruba sentence that means “let us dance”.
What Are The Features?
Jekajo.com has a repository of songs, so you can listen to songs on Jekajo, make them into a playlist and save the playlists.
Perhaps one of the coolest features of Jekajo is that you can upload songs directly and share, follow and interact with other people.
I might be wrong but there are probably no local music sites that allows users do that.
On Jekajo, if your favorite artist or your friend uploads a music you like, you will receive email alerts. And as they share more songs, you’ll always be in the loop on the latest music in the Nigerian music scene.
With an average of 10 new albums and singles being released online every week and a growing list of upcoming artists in Nigeria, you need a platform such as Jekajo.com to stay up-to-date.
According to one of the founders, the idea behind Jekajo is not to create another social network for users to sign into and become a member of, but to leverage on other existing social networks, such as facebook and twitter and hopefully Nigerian-focused social networks focused such as Naijaborn.
Well, I’m not sure how Jekajo would integrate with social networks like Naijaborn, but it’s a music site that’s what watching.
It’ll be interesting to see how Jekajo would differentiate itself from this market.
