Tidal: Jay Z targets Nigerian talents. Good/bad for the industry?

A couple of tweets caught my eye this evening. Apparently, Jay Z has sent his cousin (Bee-High) to Nigeria to source for talent:

And then, twitter user @Fazillion sounds the slavery alarm:

but, apparently…

Well, @Fazillion is so sure that Tidal is the devil, so he continues…

I really do not what the noise is about. This reminds me of the silly lawsuit seeking to bar DSTv from increasing their tarriff. If Tidal is offering a better deal than other platforms, why shouldn’t Nigerian acts sign up? And whats all the talk about slavery?

Tidal is offering 75% of earnings to artistes. Some think this is too small, but consider that Tidal’s subscription is higher than that of competitors…so the earnings are remarkably higher.
