Today is the launch day for the international and world-renowned music distribution company ITAAW Limited starting operations in Africa for the main purpose of assisting African artists to achieve economic independence.
The company has watched over the years as many artists laboured and created music without getting rewarded with accurate sales figures because they had no direct access to their music sales figure. They are sent sales figures on excel sheets every 3 months. Documents that can easily be manipulated

Some use some other foreign platforms where it is difficult for them to access their revenue due to the challenges of payment systems to Nigeria. This has made this a bad choice for most labels/artists.
This need is the reason ITAAW is set up. ITAAW is an acronym for “It’s Time All Artists Win”. The philosophy is, if all artists can make a living off the sales of their music, then they have won.
The system is designed for every label/artist to be able to do all their business by themselves without any middleman. Create an account, sign up and sign in to have access to use all the features on the platform like uploading directly to all the major music stores in the world.
