He went on to work with tech firms in music management, and that’s how SAGOS Distro was born.
So what makes SAGOS so special? Well, it’s a music licensing and distribution aggregator with NFT minting technology that’s designed for any active music business. That means labels, recording studios, producers, artist managers, music tech companies, and collectives can all benefit from this innovative platform.

They’re in the process of onboarding over 600,000 more songs from different music management companies from the US, Africa, Asia, and Europe. And get this, some of these management companies don’t just offer music and video, but also animated music videos. Talk about a game-changer!
