The subscription-based streaming service is officially available in Nigeria. Tidal was launched in October 2014, with various music-related projects launching exclusively to the platform. Music heads, most especially fans of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s music based in Nigeria were not so pleased by this development as the streaming platform did not offer services in the region. The Carter’s released most of their projects exclusively on their platform and didn’t make them available to other streaming platforms until sometime in 2017.
Tidal boasts of a catalogue of 60+ million tracks, 250,000+ HD videos and live events, completely ad-free. For subscription, the platform gives an initial one month trial period and thereafter payment of ₦1,200 is set monthly. You do not need to include your card details as the app automatically syncs with your phone’s app store. You can also get a 90% discount on your subscription for 3 months through a coupon system available on the Tidal site.
A major question is if Beyoncé’s ‘Black Is King’ will be available on the platform, that is not clear yet as the initial information of the visual album is that it is exclusive to Disney+.
