Musiqui app launches digital karaoke competition

MUMBAI: Musiqui application has launched the first Indian Karaoke League (IKL), providing a platform for aspiring singers to be a karaoke star.

The league was launched at Suresh Wadkar’s Ajivasan Music Academy, Mumbai.

The app provides license to sing, auto-tune the song and make it equivalent to a professional studio recording. These recordings can become the first step towards stardom and eventually winning the IKL.

IKL is a nationwide hunt for the best karaoke singer. For greater levels of participation, the league will be divided into four groups including College Champs, School Stars, Professionals and Amateurs. Contestants can participate in any of these four groups, through the Musiqui app.

IKL co-founder and CEO Sanjay Chitale said, “Music is my passion, technology is my education and entrepreneurship is my profession. I could not have found a better opportunity to put them together in a more meaningful and productive way. Given the love for music in India, I hope Musiqui will someday become a household name like some of the large social networks.”

Music Today represents the Musicqui app in India.

Present at the launch were the jury panel of IKL which included chief mentor and mahaguru Suresh Wadkar, co-founder and brand ambassador Sonu Nigam, chief advisor Shameer Tandon, advisory board member Mala Sekhri and Chitale.

Nigam said, “Music has ceased to remain a profession or a hobby of a few and with the advent of technology, has facilitated more people to enjoy being called a singer. IKL takes this to another league now by bringing the technology, and the platform, to your doorstep.”

IKL is supported by ad agency Chlorophyll and media law firm Khimani & Associates, which have helped the app in creative as well as legal advice.
