Safaricom to launch music app next month
Safaricom will launch a music app in July according to the telecom’s chief executive officer Bob Collymore, who says the app will enable musicians to upload and sell their songs. He says he was urged by President Uhuru Kenyatta to ensure local artists benefit more from the Skiza music platform.
Skiza is a platform created by Safaricom more than 16 years ago to provide a forum for Kenyan artistes to sell their music. It also offers the artistes a chance to reach the company’s 28 million subscribers.
