Elijah Kitaka, the ex-Program Manager, Outreach at Google and Fezah’s Co-founder and CTO says life is short and we are are wired to celebrate life’s biggest milestones with great music whether its a birthday, a graduation, a milestone like buying a house, celebrations like getting married, naming your first child, your kid’s birthday and just about everything.
“Whatever you are celebrating, Fezah has got your live music needs covered,” he says.
Kitaka, a Radio Producer and Presenter, teamed up with a friend Ham Namakajjo, a former Google Uganda Country Manager to develop the app which has a list of musicians, bands, or DJs, their performance fees, samples of the musician, band, or DJs repertoire, videos of a past event, audition, or official music video, previous customers and fan reviews and then book and track the status of your booking from the time it is submitted, to when it is accepted, and completed.
The two also aim to empower the artists apart form just giving the gigs. Fezah aims to raise money and through partnerships reduce costs for African musicians, film makers, and fine artists to produce their albums, films, do concerts or tours or do their art collections among others. e.t.c.
For fans, Fezah promises them exclusive rewards from African creatives based on whatever stuff they are working on.
