A local Hip Hop artist, Jnr. Brown, has managed to make over US$6,000 from his latest record through a distribution model that uses WhatsApp and mobile money. In this episode, we discuss that model and the dynamics around online content distribution in Zimbabwe. We also talk about the theft of content that has been experienced and carried out by online publishers, the opening up of Facebook’s Instant Articles, the Hammer and Tongues data leak and the lack of dreams around STEM in Zimbabwe.
