Singers Patoranking, DJ Cuppy, Adekunle Gold and Fireboy DML will be interacting with their fans during the virtual YouTube Music Week starting on Monday, the company announced on Friday.

In a statement, Google Product Marketing Manager Adetutu Laditan said the virtual hangouts would take place from September 23 to 26.

She said that beyond celebrating the immense talent demonstrated by Nigerian music stars, the goal of YouTube Music Week was also to showcase some of the top artistes and songs making waves on the YouTube Music platform.

According to her, other fun features on YouTube Music like lyrics, playlists, background play, availability of remixes and covers will also be highlighted.

Launched earlier this year in Nigeria, YouTube Music reinforces YouTube’s long-term commitment to support the growth of the music industry in Nigeria.

“The music streaming service uses the magic of YouTube to give fans official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio plus YouTube’s tremendous catalogue of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos that cannot be found anywhere else – personalized and all simply organized in one place,” she said.

Laditan said that YouTube was redefining the entertainment experience as the online platform that exports Afrobeat from Nigeria.
