You can even buy a single song from the Album if you don’t have enough money to buy all. The good thing is you can use your mobile money to purchase these songs and it’s pretty fast.
In terms of the most accessible international distributor, I’ll recommend distrokid. It gives you access to all the music stores in the world and the setup is very easy. There are other options like tunecore, cdbaby, ditto etc but this is by far the most accessible.
Their smallest plan is $20 but it comes with some limitations like not being able to set the release date. I’ll recommend the $36 plan which is something around 21k XAF. This plan is good for any independent or upcoming artist. You can find a person with a visa card and get him to pay for this, then you will be able to release an unlimited amount of songs
The payment is on a yearly basis
