Hot New Afro is a launchpad for independent African artists, content publishing & entertainment platform founded by Paul Fashanu in 2017. A platform that allows music artists to raise funds for their projects, create content, promote content, distribute and publish content. It is also a platform that allows artists to organize events and provides a creative space to empower artisans with the tools, resources, technology, mentorship, networks, and freedom they need to activate their talent and translate it into a sustainable career that promotes industry innovation.

Our Ecosystem


A tokenization and crowdfunding platform for African artists to create their own tokenized ecosystem.

Since our inception in 2017, part of our value proposition and major goals at HOT NEW AFRO was to introduce a platform where fans can invest in their favorite artist and share in royalties. In 2018, after much research and development, we finally arrived at how we could make this a reality. We started experimenting with blockchain technology and found out that tokenization of artists and/ or their music project is an amazing way artist and fan relationship can flourish without the need for 360 deals from record labels.
