“For some reason, I’m emotional about Shazam, I looove Shazam! As a new artist, my voice was unfamiliar, my name was unfamiliar… Shazam has been very instrumental to my career, and the first real data I had that let me know people were checking me out.” – Omah Lay
“Afrobeats is becoming a global sound and Shazam has been a key tool to the discovery of our sound all over the world.” – Kiddominant
