YouTube Premium Expands To Five More African Countries | Fab.ng

YouTube has recently expanded its services to an additional ten countries. This includes five African countries. As of December 2020, YouTube Premium was made available in Ghana, Kenya, and Senegal, providing users with ad-free and uninterrupted streaming on the platform.

The recent expansion of the service to Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Uganda, Libya, and Morocco now allows even more users in Africa to enjoy the benefits of YouTube Premium. In addition to the African countries, the service was also launched in Azerbaijan, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Reunion, and Yemen. This move is part of YouTube’s ongoing effort to provide accessible services to users in various parts of the world.

A YouTube Music Premium subscription unlocks an ad-free listening experience and the ability to download music for offline playback. This expanded functionality allows subscribers to use YouTube Music’s vast music library, boasting millions of official songs, live performances, music videos, remixes, podcasts, and even rare tracks. The platform personalizes the experience by curating recommendations tailored to individual preferences.

“With the YouTube Music app, we’ve built a dedicated music streaming experience that delivers over 100 million official songs, along with an extensive catalog of live performances, music videos, remixes, podcasts, and hard-to-find music that you can’t get anywhere else”

YouTube’s head of music for sub-Saharan Africa, Addy Awofisayo, said in December.

“We’ve taken all of that music content and created a personalized journey through sound that fits your particular music needs and preferences.” 

In a move to promote transparency on its platform, YouTube recently introduced a new tool within Creator Studio. This tool allows creators to disclose when their videos utilize realistic-looking altered or synthetic media, like that generated by AI.

This disclosure, displayed as a label on the video itself, aims to build trust with viewers. This move will ensure they are aware of any potential manipulation within the content. Examples of content requiring disclosure include videos where a person’s likeness has been digitally altered or real-world footage has been significantly modified.

Whitemoney says he doesn't look up to anyone | Fab.ng

BBNaija star and musician Hazel Oyeye Onou, also known as Whitemoney, recently spoke about his musical talent in an interview with his colleague, Doyin David.

He confidently claimed that he is unique in the music industry and called himself the ‘big 1’. Whitemoney asserted that no Nigerian artist can match his musical abilities.

He also mentioned that he no longer worries about criticism because he believes Nigerian artists lack lyrical depth.

Whitemoney said, “I am the first of my kind. I created my kind of sound, and I don’t look up to my colleagues. I am not the best, but nobody is better than me. No artist makes music like my music. Their sounds are not intentional to me. So when you drag me thinking you are hurting me, you are doing me a favour.”

“Don’t stop dragging me. Never give up. I don’t like being stereotyped or being boxed. I could care less about big 3 or whatever. All I know is I am the big 1. No one can match my talent. What I am about to do to the industry now, dem go believe. I will not just be in the music industry as an artist, I will be there as a business.”
