Spotify and Indie Artists in Egypt: How 2022 Made a Major Impact on the Egyptian Music Scene

Spotify and Indie Artists in Egypt: How 2022 Made a Major Impact on the Egyptian Music Scene

It’s safe to say that indie music in Egypt is finally getting the recognition it deserves. With the last 3 years on Spotify having the likes of Wegz and other rappers dominate the charts, we can confidently say that mainstream music in Egypt definitely is not the highly produced music we’ve been used to.

Before, musicians needed to have major budgets just to have their music heard. Now, get your music for free on a streaming platform, use social media, and you’re good to go.

Even looking at the charts provided to us exclusively from Spotify for the most streamed new artists in Egypt, you’ll see that most, if not all of them, don’t have major budgets.

  1. FLEX
  2. Wingii
  3. Nour El Nabawy
  4. LZHYMR
  5. Ordony
  6. Lella Fadda
  7. Farid
  8. Issa & Assouad
  9. Nubi
  10. Ziad Zaza 

This is why we had a talk with Spotify MENA’s Senior Artist & Label Partnerships Manager, Wissam Khodur, to tell us how you can get your music on Spotify.
