Music and entertainment streaming platform, Anghami organised its first ‘Artist Meetup’ event in Beirut recently.

Organised by Anghami’s Artist & Creator Experiences (ACE) team at the company’s Beirut offices, the meetup was attended by more than 70 up-and-coming artists.

The event presented a chance for the platform to announce some sneak peeks into its upcoming projects, including an exciting new rising artist programme “SAWT JDEED”, launching in January 2023.

It provided the attendees with insights on Anghami for Creators and gave them tips and tricks to help grow their artist journey. Furthermore, the team gave the attendees an exclusive look at Anghami’s new ‘Artist Playbook’.

The event also allowed artists from the region to share their feedback and experiences, they got a chance to meet each other and network, all while discussing the potential for future artistic collaborations.

Event organiser and Anghami’s content operations manager, Salam Kmeid, comments: “As the leading audio platform in the region, our mission is to offer local and global creators the space they need to unleash their full potential and connect with their fans from all over the world. Our goal from the meetup is to be closer to the artist community in Lebanon, which is unique in its art, sound and diversity.”

Eddy Maroun, co-founder and CEO of Anghami, said “Without talented artists, there would be no Anghami. Our growing group of loyal subscribers are hungry for new music, and we are committed to helping discover and support new talent. It’s gratifying to see so much local talent in one room – and the artists found the meetup extremely insightful.”

Artists also heard from guest speakers on a virtual panel: Anthony from Adonis, who joined the event in person, Big Hass, radio host and hip-hop blogger, Rami Zeidan, general manager of Vibe Music Arabia, and Zan Nakari, a music industry expert.

Big Hass said: “As an artist, your art can impact the world. So, it’s a big deal. Focus on your journey and try to craft your own lane. Collaborate with artists you value, so we all rise up together. We all are students of this game, and as long as you have that mentality and persistence, you will be able to pursue your dream, you just have to show the world that you are hungry for it. So come on, show us that hunger.”

Zeidan added: “Creativity is an expressive talent, a journey of self-discovery and connection with a growing audience. The label model has changed nowadays it shifted to mentorship, partnership, mutual trust, and patience. Our advice is to find your sound, build your audience and when it’s time to be signed, it will be time to take things to the next level, faster.”

In recent news, Anghami announced it’s strengthening its presence through strategic partnerships with new and emerging telecom companies to offer Arabs around the world unlimited access to its content.
