What SlikourOnLife Was Launching Last Night

By @SeptemberEleven on 05/31/2023 in Article

Last night, SlikourOnLife launched the United States Of Creatives which includes a music distribution service and fintech platform.


The United States Of Creatives is a project that aims to unite creatives through fintech products that are tailored for the creative industry. These include SOL Distro and SOL Wallet, which were officially launched last night at The Venue in Melrose Arch by SlikourOnLife founder Siya Metane. It also includes the Blackchain, which will launch in the near future. 

“I have a saying if God created the world, why have we not deliberately created a world for creators or their own state. It’s because the crux of every state is? Finance and Treasury.” - Siya Metane  

SOL Distro 

On the SlikourOnLife platform, we have artists who upload their music for free download, now they will also be able to do that on our DIY music distribution service called SOL Distro which will launch this Friday. 

It’s been said that digital music made close to R1.1 billion last year and most of the money is not immediately claimed by artists, in fact some artists can leave their money for three to five years because they making more money gigging.

With so much liquid cash, why isn’t the artist community investing in stocks, bonds, giving debt loans to companies at a favourable interest margin or just buying equity in local and global companies?

All the artists who’ve opted in who are signed to SOL Distro will now be investors in the economy. 

Some artists might not opt into investing because our situations aren’t the same and sometimes the money is not a lot so we needed to create a platform where they receive money without it being chowed by bank charges. 

Enter our fintech platform called the SOL Wallet. 

The SOL Wallet 

The SOL Wallet has a SOL virtual card that allows you to do online and POS payments at zero charge. 

It also allows you to have a SOL balance that allows you to send money or transact with other SOL account holders.

View and explore the app here: You can explore the app here.

The SOL Wallet is not obsessed with your income bracket but your social, lifestyle, creative and business interests.

The SOL wallet’s objective is to give consumers better value for their lifestyle interests by partnering with events, fashion and lifestyle platforms.


For promoters and artists 

You’re an artist or promoter and you want to sell tickets, merchandise or beverages at your event? You can add your business here and consolidate that whole journey.

Why use three platforms to achieve one thing?

You can go as far as using our POS system that allows SOL Wallet users at the event to pay with their cameras. Or they can pay with their SOL virtual card at a normal POS system with zero bank charges

For fans 

If you love going to events or supporting creative, you can buy your tickets on the SOL Wallet and if the event owner has added the whole journey of drinks and merchandise, you can even pre-order your drinks/ merch before you arrive at the event and just pick up instead of waiting in a line.

You might ask what happens if your pre-ordered funds deplete at the event. It’s easy, our system allows you to add your Master or Visa card and move money to your SOL Balance or SOL Mastercard and you can make POS payments. 

Creators and brands

You might be working on a project with multiple people who need money immediately or urgently instead of adding numerous bank accounts to your online banking, just send them the money through their phone number. 

And what if you’re a brand and you want to partner with events and you need to show the acquisition's ROI? Simple, create packaged tickets that have your product and access to the event, build your tribe and remarket.

This is not a banking system to undermine the banking system but it’s us betting on ourselves by creating a system for creatives that banks can later adopt to change the lives of creatives by giving them a start. 

Loans - coming soon 

Say you’re a creator and you have a job from a client that pays in 60 days, if you have our the SOL MasterCard and you need a loan to get started? Over time, we will announce a creator's loan for all these businesses.



SlikourOnLife will also unveil BlackChain, a creator marketplace connecting businesses with talented creative freelancers that have been quality-checked by procurement and production teams of SA’s most established agencies. 

This platform will streamline the process of finding professional suppliers while promoting the work of creative individuals.

You’ll be able to use the same logins on the Blackchain as on the SOL Wallet. Meaning creators on the Blackchain will be able to have a seamless experience to borrow when they get jobs that require them to raise funding.
