LyricFind strikes lyric-licensing deal for sub-Saharan Africa
Lyric-licensing firm LyricFind, like many other companies in the music industry, has high hopes that Africa will be a big growth continent in the future. It has just signed a deal with South African collecting society Capasso that will license and collect royalties for lyrics in 38 countries across Africa. “The agreement also notably covers legal lyric translations of global music into African and other languages (and vice versa). Legal translations will further help break down language barriers and increase music’s usage, engagement and revenue,” noted LyricFind in its announcement of the partnership. The agreement covers African music from the 38 countries included in the agreement, as well as that international repertoire.
