“The new technology will see entertainers like us investing more in online services that will provide a readily sustainable income through digital platforms like Imprxx,” he stated.
The app developer Ilesanmi, explained that it provides an on-call live event streaming solution with less than 15 minutes setup to record, process and broadcast live events.

“Before now, many artists, especially the traditional ones derived their major income from live shows which are normally done within a hall or open space.”
“With Imprxx, live shows will be digitalised and will enable entertainers to be making money right from their living rooms or from designated studios,” he said.
