This is a significant step for us in achieving our aim to develop the African music eco-system and we are excited about the opportunities that this strategic partnership will bring for African artistes and our users”. Boomplay’s Director of Content & Strategy, Phil Choi said.

“Music remains the only universal language, transcending the thoughts, boundaries, philosophies, cultures and preferences of individuals. This partnership offers our African stars a stronger opportunity to be heard on the global scene – increasing their reach and exposure,”  Boomplay’s Head of Marketing for Africa, Tosin Sorinola adds.

SME’s Managing Director, Sean Watson concluded, “SME is delighted about working with Boomplay to deliver some of the greatest music in the world to African music lovers through our newly concluded partnership. We look forward to bringing Africans together on Boomplay to discover, listen to and enjoy the millions of songs our exceptional Sony Music Entertainment artists have created!”
