Featured Again on App of the Day

Paget Maanige is a Ugandan developer at Dogmaz Software. He started creating Android apps in late 2017. His aim is to educate and entertain through code.

1.    Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have created Android apps. I was in fact featured a while back for my Business Startup Android app.

2.    What was the most challenging aspect of developing this mobile app?

Drum Pad Afro-beat is unlike any app I have ever made. There are many parts to the app like audio, different button color patterns, instrumentals, creating song art covers and more.

3.    Name a few of your favorite apps and reason/s you love them.

Business Startup is among my favorite apps since it is now ranked among the top five in the business category on the Google App Play Store.

Drum Pad Machine by EasyBrain is an exciting music maker.

Drum Pads 24 by Paul, I think Paul started the drum pad phenomenon. I have a lot of respect for these two great music maker app creators.

4.    How long have you been working on this app?

I got the idea months back but struggled to create a blue-print. I then started working on the app sometime in early or mid-2019. A fairly representable version of the app was put up in alpha stage on the Play Store in January 2020. I then released a couple of beta versions throughout January and part of February 2020. On 20th February 2020, I released Drum Pad Afro-beat to production.

5.    What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app? (minimum 10 words).
I want users to create Afro-beat music with amazing rhythms, loops and FX effects. The app enables users to record their music and listen in at a later time or even show off to their friends.


6.    In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app. Write it in personal way.

The GENRE of music my brother and I are basing this app on. This is the first music beat maker app that solely focused on Afro-beat, Lingala, Kidandali and more African music genres.

7.    What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

All the music is this app is so far done by Erasmus aka Producer Razmizy, Am planning to feature other producers like Producer Quas. We are already in talks with Producer Baru and Producer Nature. We are looking forward to bringing in music by a band of a friend. In short there is a lot of music lined up for the app. All these are well known producers here and I look forward to bringing more original content from amazing Afro-beat music makers. My aim is to add at least a new sound pack every month.

Am still working on the recording feature of the app. I want to make the recording internal and not through the microphone. This will be especially useful to users with low-end devices.

8.    Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

It’s always amazing receiving feedback from you. Please share our app with your family and friends. Post what you have created with Drum Pad Afro-beat on social media with the hash tags #drumpadafro #drumpadafrobeat

My Interview with Editor of App of the Day

1.    Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I did a bit of development on games but I had only been coding for few months before graduating from university.

2.    What was the most challenging aspect of developing this mobile app?

Researching and creating the content. This also being one of my first apps frightened me.

3.    Name a few of your favorite apps and reason/s you love them.

  • I was inspired by Entrepreneur Mindset by Afradad Media during my campus days at Kyambogo University.
  • Apps by Tulipdev also inspired projects I later created. The developer at Tulipdev also assisted me in creating one of my apps (Motivation app).
  • La Musique app by Ankit Srivastava. I got to learn of Ankit from Quora when Business Startup had about 8,000 installs. I was struggling to market the app. Ankit’s story inspired me to reach out to editors and tech communities all over the world.
  • Drum Pads Machines by Easybrain and Drum Pads 24 by Paul Lipnyagov. They are the inspiration to my current project Drum Pads Afrobeat.

4.    How long have you been working on this app?

I started working on Business Startup weeks before my University graduation in November 2017. I managed to successfully research, code and upload the app in February 2018.

5.    What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app? (minimum 10 words).

I want my users to have financial freedom through business. Unemployment is high especially here in Africa. I wanted to inspire fellow youth to start and grow legitimate businesses.

6.    In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app. Write it in personal way.

Business Startup – Entrepreneur Mindset has tips from successful entrepreneurs from all over the world such as Aliko Dangote, Jack Ma, Sara Blakely, Warren Buffet, Sudhril Ruparelia and others at the start of each chapter. Each tip relates to the chapter it’s in and content in the app is detailed and on point.

7.    What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

My future plans for Business Startup – Entrepreneur Mindset

  • I plan on starting a community within the app. Conversations within the app would be of positive impact to community.
  • Am going to incorporate Volume Two into Business Startup. Here I’ll educate on topics like Product Marketing



8.    Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

New users are very welcome to try out the app. Please share the app with friends and family. Watch out for updates as well. This is just the beginning.

Making Passive Income on the Internet as an African

Photo by Sharon Mccutcheon from Unsplash

You should learn from your competitor but never copy. Copy and you die.

Jack Ma

What have I learnt over the past two years of online business?

It isn’t easy starting with nothing to make money online but the results are always worth the hustle.

The internet is a whole different place compared to the real world. Once you open a shop in town (let’s say somewhere in Kampala or Lagos) people will flock into your shop within a week. People on the internet on the other hand don’t give a damn about your website or what you are selling.

Even if you have the best book, software, music track or short-film you won’t get anyone visiting your personal website unless you market your content. Getting tens of thousands of people to your website won’t also be enough to make you money to pay your rent or buy you a house.

Very often things happen on the Internet that take people’s attention for example fake news, breaking news, meteor rocks almost hitting the earth and the latest movies. This is why you have to learn to positively impact people’s lives for free as a way of gaining loyal traffic. This cold traffic will soon be paying close attention to your content and with a well implemented Email list set up (i.e GetResponse or MailChimp*I don’t recommend for affiliate marketers*) they will become your paying clients (3% of all cold traffic) for life.

The best way I would recommend anyone to start making money on the internet is through Affiliate marketing programs. Something you have to understand is that affiliate marketing is very rewarding to the PATIENT, DISCIPLINED and STRATEGIC.

There’s a reason why affiliate marketing is loved by Bloggers, Youtubers and Social Media Influencers and this is because;

  1. You do not need to have a PRODUCT of your own to get started.
  2. You do not require capital to start affiliate marketing.
  3. You will learn how to sale and market any product to anyone

I would like to add amazing value to your table if you are thinking of joining affiliate marketing and I will provide you with this information free of charge (no strings attached)

I am a Ugandan and from my hustling experience these affiliate platforms are very easy to sign up with as a Ugandan and have a very good history of making people 6 figures (xxx, xxx) in US dollars monthly income.

  1. Amazon Affiliates (low commissions 0-10%, wide user base, you’ll require your TIN to register)
  2. CJ Affiliates (home of big companies like airlines, low and high commissions, TIN from URA required)
  3. JVZoo(No TIN required, upto 50% commissions, only digital products)
  4. Market Health(No TIN required to get started, only health products are available for marketing)
  5. Impact (big brands, no data yet)
  6. Clickbank (digital products but unavailable to Ugandans although there are ways around this but I don’t recommend you do this)
  7. ClickFunnels (require a TIN, must have a Paypal account,  40% commission)

How does Affiliate marketing work?

It is very simple in theory but gets a bit complicated practically. That’s why you have to be disciplined and patient. Imagine this as your house, taxi or bodaboda (it won’t be easy making money in the first days and months) but as soon as you get the layout of the business and how things are done. You will be financially smiling for a long time (unless the internet crashes forever).

Here’s what you are going to do

You’ll sign up with these platforms the same way you signed up with Facebook, Twitter or Gmail. Once you are through with signing up, you will have access to the platform’s free tools. What you now look for are the most sold products on the platform and get your affiliate link to that product.

For some platforms like Clickbank and MarketHealth, acquiring these affiliate links is very simple.

Platforms like JVZoo and CJ affiliates require that you first request the vendors permission to acquire access to an affiliate link.

Now that you have your affiliate link you have a tool to make yourself money but this money isn’t going to be easy to make unless you already have thousands of Youtube subscribers or an email list with hundreds of online clients.

You’ll need to start a blog for FREE with WordPress (start simple). Get a NICHE to be blog about (assuming you photograph at weddings) you’ll blog about weddings and post your best photos from these wedding events. Mid way your blog post, you’ll add your affiliate link to the camera or digital software you use to edit your photos. With time you’ll be making sales and the amazing thing about these companies is that INCOME is MONTHLY and RECURRING (i.e ClickFunnels).

Recurring means you’ll keep making your 40% commission every month as long as the person that signed through you is a member of the company. Basic Entrance into ClickFunnels is about 67$ and Premium Entrance is about 297$. This means you will make 26.8$ per month as long as the client is a member of ClickFunnels through the Basic Entrance Program. Now if 10 clients signup with ClickFunnels for basic entrance you will make yourself 268$(991, 600Ugx) per month, 100 clients you will make 2680$(9, 916, 000Ugx) per month. How about if you get ClickFunnels premium clients?

Note:- Visit their website for the exact entry fees

 ClickFunnels is a very wealthy company so wealthy that they even give out cars(Tesla, Corvette, Lexus, name the car of your choice) to the best affiliates. They thrive off your progress, the more clients they get the happier they’ll be.

Start your own Youtube channel, it’s free.. You’ll thank me 5 years from now depending on how SERIOUS you are.
