Should the following Tier 5: up to $120,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Content Creator category be approved?
I intend to use my EP project which I am currently working on to educate and onboard Afrobeat Music Stars, Celebrities and Influencers and bring them into the metaverse.
The Afrobeat music genre is the current trend in music right now and has being projected to be the biggest genre in music in the next 5 years as almost every creator from different genre are now tapping into the Afrobeat sound to make their music relevant and tandem with the current trend in Music.
It should be noted that the genre is very lucrative and it originates from Africa’s biggest Economy Nigeria with over 250 million population and In a continent of over 1.4 billion people the African continent in context.
My project will bring a whole lot of celebrities and Music Stars from the African continent into the Metaverse!
I intend to use my EP to educate and enlighten African creators about the importance of the 4th industrial revolution which includes blockchain technology, machine learning, VR, AI.
This project will educate them on how Decentraland can propel their content into the global stage through releasing their music and movie content as an NFT in the metaverse.
On the other hand Decentraland will be tapping into a continent of over 1.4 billion people with Huge potential and need for the Blockchain. Africa has the most to benefit from Blockchain and bringing Decentraland into the continent to content creators, movie and music producers, musicians, actors and actresses who already have a large fanbase on social media will be a win win situation Decentraland.
I will be the first African Musician in the Afrobeat music space to release my music content as an NFT in the Metaverse through Decentraland
I intend to release each of my singles as NFT in the Metaverse through Decentraland in partnership with various media power house to bring awareness of the metaverse to my colleagues in the Mainstream Afrobeat music space.
A second step is to introduce digital performance in the metaverse which is a strategy to introduce Decentraland to African musicians and content creators in the movie space, fashion, entertainment, showbiz etc.
This project is a continent wide project hence the request for the budget
I have a team of seasoned entrepreneurs and content creators which includes videographers, cinematographers, dancers, musicians, actors and actresses to team up with to propagate and popularise Decentraland to their huge multimillion fanbase.
This project will bring measurables goals that can propel the growth of Decentraland in the African market .
