About the Campaign
I am popularly called Eyehole. I am a Nigerian musician who had been there before the likes of Wizkid, Burna Boy, Tekno, Mr. Easy, and many more. Why is it that I haven’t come to the limelight to date despite recording and performing my songs since 2006? Lack of funds is the basic culprit. I have fought hard to create this android app to promote my song for earning huge revenue. You can view it by pasting this link on your browser: https://cutt.ly/fct2XTq
Nigerian entertainment now has gone wild that only the wealthy can get a space into music as entertainment.
I have worked tirelessly for 5 weeks to produce the album VIBES by myself in my room using my simple Dell PC, a Hot 9 Infinix mobile phone, and Fruity Loops 20 musical DAW. But I concentrated to make my music as best as it can be to make Eyehole’s songs stand out for 2021.
I am anxious to be known and that is why I need your financial contributions, after persisting to create an android app for the album, which the play store has made available for download to 176 countries of the world. I need to promote my new android app whose name is Eyehole’s VIBES on the google play store. Play store developer support has just approved the version 1.02 update of the app on 31st of March 2021.
Cdbaby.com and Songtradr.com had distributed my songs in 2012 and 2018 respectively. They distributed my songs in the last two years without promotion, nothing comes in of any income. This is simply because distribution needs promotion for which I lacked knowledge about back then. This time around in 2021, I need help to do a massive promotion for the android app Eyehole’s VIBES (https://cutt.ly/fct2XTq) and set up a music studio after revenue is generated within 3 months.
What You Will Help Me Achieve
1) You are aware that my musical career had been stalled for nearly two decades due to lack of finance for publicity, your contributions will usher me into the limelight in the musical entertainment industry in Nigeria and abroad by generating huge revenue with the music android app Eyehole’s VIBES.

2) From the 1,500,000 nairas contributed by you for us, and as soon as your contributions reach 1,500,000 nairas, 15% of the funds will be taken by fundanenterprise.org. I am very grateful to this platform and looking to help others donate to their projects as well in 2022.
3) The entire balance of 1,275,000 nairas will be dedicated to various app promoting companies I have partnered with such as google AdMob, approving.com, startapp.com, and appbrain.com
4) The revenue generated will be used to set up a music studio against the 2022 album release.
Are you wondering about this sum? Do you feel this is too good to be true? Do you know what it means for an app to generate a revenue of 1 million US dollars per annum? Here is a copy of the mail google play developer support sent to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
” Kesmohpolitan | Google Play service fee reduction, new Play Console metrics, and more
16 March 2021
Posted by Sameer Samat, VP, Product Management
Helping developers build sustainable businesses is a core part of Google Play’s mission. We work with partners every day to understand the challenges they face and help them bring their innovative ideas to life. Getting a new app off the ground and into orbit is not easy! To aid their quest for growth we provide a broad range of support, from powerful marketing tools and actionable data in the Play Console, education via Play Academy, best practices and thought leadership resources, programs such as the Indie Games Festival, Indie Corner, and accelerator programs around the world. We’re always looking for new ways to give them an added boost.
Starting on July 1, 2021 we are reducing the service fee Google Play receives when a developer sells digital goods or services to 15% for the first $1M (USD) of revenue every developer earns each year. With this change, 99% of developers globally that sell digital goods and services with Play will see a 50% reduction in fees. These are funds that can help developers scale up at a critical phase of their growth by hiring more engineers, adding to their marketing staff, increasing server capacity, and more.
While these investments are most critical when developers are in the earlier stages of growth, scaling an app doesn’t stop once a partner has reached $1M in revenue — we’ve heard from our partners making $2M, $5M, and even $10M a year that their services are still on a path to self-sustaining orbit. This is why we are making this reduced fee on the first $1M of total revenue earned each year available to every Play developer, regardless of size. We believe this is a fair approach that aligns with Google’s broader mission to help all developers succeed. We look forward to sharing full details in the coming months.
As a platform, we do not succeed unless our partners succeed. Android and Google Play have always listened to our developer partners from around the world and we continue to take their input into account as we build and run the ecosystem. We look forward to seeing more businesses scale to new heights on Android, and to further discussions with our developer community to find new ways to support them technically and economically as they build their businesses.”
So if you read properly the first paragraph of the email, you will have come across that part where a reduced tax of 15% will be made on revenue generated by any app the hits the 1 million USD mark in a year! That is simply Three Hundred and Eight One million naira as of today. This is quite achievable as Eyehole’s VIBES android app has been made available for download for all android users in 176 countries of the world!

Music is a language of all people like sports. Music can heal or destroy the world, but Eyehole seeks to heal it. Music can make the downtrodden stand up for a common goal. Legends in music have been known to do a lot for their fans and the world at large. Akon went to Senegal to build Wakonda City. This is the kinda impact music can bring to the world.
Don’t doubt Eyehole! I have been a musician since the cradle. I have over 500 songs untouched, not recorded nor performed, more drops from heaven almost every day like a revelation! From this point on, my music will turn the world and your world in particular, I mean you my backer. Be my backer and we will get to change the way we live with music!
I have not done any major community project with my music in my life sojourn. I have the most ardent desire to do. I have only being a part of a community project, but not the cause. You will be a cause for me to be a cause for a major change. I don’t know what exact picture it may take, and it is not yet a promise until I get there!
Risks & Challenges
Covid-19 has hampered many businesses including performances for musicians. Many governments have banned any forms of social gatherings. So online shows like what I do at Sessionslive.com have somewhat mitigated that challenge to an appreciable degree.
My plan is to promote the android app Eyeholes VIBES on the radio and go on vigorously with my online performances at Sessions pending Covid-19 cases will quell.
Spotify promotions, Apple Music promotions, and YouTube Music promotions all will make up for the hollowness Covid-19 restrictions have placed on our path.
Other Ways You Can Help
