Upload your music through Naijatastic distribution portal, wait a few days for the stores to match it to the existing versions, and then ask your current distributor to take the old version down.

Just upload the single first, and then upload the entire album (including the single) as a separate release.
When creating the album, You will have the option to select tracks already distributed (as singles) from your catalogue (to maintain the same ISRC codes) and the option to add the new ones from your computer.

If you release a cover, remix or a song using samples, you will likely need to purchase a license before releasing your music to avoid any possible legal action from the original copyright holders.
These licenses must cover both streams and downloads, for an appropriate amount in either case.
You are welcome to upload remixes of your own work. However, if your remix is of another artist's song, or contains any part of another artist's original music, we require permission from the original artist.
First of all, make sure that your audio is a true .wav file. Renaming the file extension from (for instance) .mp3, .mp4 or .aiff to .wav will not magically make the file a true .wav file. You have to make sure that the file is encoded as a waveform audio file format, sometimes also uncorrectly called “Audio for Windows/Windows Audio”. This is done by exporting the audio from your editing, mastering or recording software as an LPCM .wav file.
Secondly, make sure that the audio has the correct resolution. The bit depth should be 16 bits and the sampling rate 44.1 kHz. If your audio project has a higher resolution, make sure to apply the correct dithering and sample rate conversion during or before exporting.
If you have a correctly exported wav file (which may play back perfectly fine in your media player) and it is still getting rejected, it may be that your particular file is faulty or corrupt.
The most common cause of rejection is a faulty/corrupt file.
The .wav format contains the uncompressed audio, but also some extra data, such as the file header and metadata. There is no strict regulation as to what data can be stored in a .wav file and most software audio players just ignore any non-audio bits and play back the uncompressed audio stream as-is. However, encoders and conversion algorithms (such as the ones employed in our release ingestion system) are much more sensitive to stray data and will fail to recognise the file. They need a “clean” header and audio bits.
To fix this problem, you can use a free piece of software called Audacity (https://www.audacityteam.org/), an Audio Editor which is available for Windows, Apple MacOS and Linux.
Opening the audio file in Audacity and subsequently exporting it will strip the superfluous data from the audio file and ensure it has a clean header.
Proceed as follows: 1. First make sure Audacity handles your audio file correctly. Click on “Edit” -> “Preferences” and set the “Quality” settings like below. You only have to do this once; the settings will be saved in the program. 2. Open your faulty .wav file in the program (“File” -> “Open” or drag-and-drop). 3. Export the audio as illustrated below:
Now, your file should be correct. Re-upload it in the portal or re-supply it to us.
Due to an increase in reported artificial streaming from multiple outlets, we are now taking a zero tolerance approach: any content reported as such will be taken down immediately without notice and placed on a blacklist!
Artificial streaming has become a significant problem for the music industry and diminishes the earnings of legitimate artists, labels and distributors.
We now have measures in place ourselves (and are constantly working to make them even more effective) to detect artificial streaming on our platform and consequently remove streams from reporting and payment of royalties.
Fraudulent activity has become so significant that in certain cases we had to remove entire catalogues from our service.
We take this issue very seriously and any activity that artificially inflates usage counts is of course prohibited under our provider agreement.
Artificial streaming does not reflect genuine user listening and is any activity that artificially inflates stream counts. Artificial streamers may:
gain access to digital partner platforms by creating fake user accounts or hacking existing user accounts;
present themselves as marketing or playlisting companies that promise increased streams or playlist placement, but do so by illegitimate means;
manipulate services using automated processes such as bots or scripts; and/or
deliver repertoire specifically for the purpose of artificially inflating usage counts e.g., tracks by fake artists or the same audio files delivered in multiple releases (so-called “recycled audio”).
