Norway, Denmark, Namibia, Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, Swaziland, Botswana and the United Kingdom are represented at the KZN Music Imbizo 2016 in Durban (South Africa) from August 25 to 27 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The marketing manager of the Phonofile (Trond Tornes, Norway) will be part of a panel discussion that will be looking at ONLINE DISTRIBUTION. He will be joined by Stephen Mayall (MusicAlly, United Kindgom). The panel will be looking at what THE GLOBAL MUSIC REPORT by IFPI tems “the value gap”. The value gap is about the gross mismatch between music being enjoyed by consumers and the revenues being returned to the music community.

They will be joined by the head of operation for Deezer in Africa, Gillian Ezra and Julian Van Plato, digital content creator and the founder of BalconyTV Johannesburg.

Intellectual property in the continent is still very poorly protected. Nothando Migogo (CEO of CAPASSO), Victor Mampane (SAMRO), Dodo Monamodi (IMPRA) John Max (NASCAM, Namibia) and Keitsing Monyatsi (CIPA, Botswana) will take use through their roles in making sure that the continent understands the concept and what steps are made in making sure that the owner of the property is properly compensated throughout the continent.

Our key note speakers are Debbie Mari (Chairperson, KUMISA), Lebo Gunguluza (Entrepreneur) and Sibongile Khumalo (Musician). They will seek to give us their perspective of the theme and the idea of identity within the music industry.

Channel O, MTV/MTV Base and Mzansi Magic will discussion TV Programming of African Content Beyond Just Music Videos. They will be represented by Gabriella Abrahamse, Melanie Triegaardt and David Molothlanyi respectively.

Sarah Jane Nicholson (SJN Agency), DJ Kenzhero, Thabo Mobo (Bridges of Music), Victor Dlokolo (Bounce Ideas) and Knowledge Ipinge (Music Consultant) help us understand the idea of building a brand. What does it really take?

We get an understanding of what Music Ally does through a presentation by Stephen Mayall, founder of the company. Music Ally, is one of the leading business information and development companies in digital music, which is now into its sixteenth year.

We talk to Zibokwakhe Johnstone Mnyandu, better known as Phuzekhemisi. His story is an intriguing one, and he is one of the few maskandi musician that have lived through many periods with the music industry. He is still very active and performs a lot.
