Warner Music Singapore and Affyn, a prominent Singapore-based Web3 company, announced today that they are partnering to create new opportunities for artists and audiences in the gaming industry.
The deal aims to motivate and inspire creators to explore the endless possibilities of the Web3 gaming world, and provide everyone with unique experiences that have never been seen before.
As part of the partnership, Warner Music Singapore will produce a customized song featuring bilingual artist J.M3 (pronounced Jamie) for Affyn’s new game.

Commenting on the alliance, Lucaz Lee, CEO of Affyn said: “This collaboration with Warner Music Singapore represents a new era of digital content consumption, leveraging Web3 technology to support musicians, artists, creators, and collaborators in delivering an even more immersive and interactive experience to our audiences. We look forward to the exciting possibilities that this partnership will bring to our platform and to the wider entertainment industry."

By tapping into new avenues and fans, we can broaden our reach in ground-breaking ways. We look forward to continuing our close partnership with Affyn and identifying more exciting opportunities for collaboration.”
