Earlier this month, Coke Studios Africa released a music app built on the Android platform that gives users the ability to stream, download and watch music and performances from Coke Studios Africa seasons 2 through 4. Available in various Android stores such as the Play store, the app is set to feature music from over 50 African artists, so you are sure to discover something new every time you look.
Waithera Kabiru, a Digital Marketing Manager at Coca-Cola had the following to say in regards to the app:
<blockquote>“We are very excited to launch the Coke Studio Africa mobile app, as it will enable millions of youth around Africa who love music to be able to access great content on their phones. Through the mobile app, users are able to listen to content on demand from the TV show via audio streaming or video, and download the music or create playlists for future listening. It’s truly a revolutionary experience.”</blockquote>
The app is available in 5 different languages, including English, French, Portuguese, Swahili and Amharic, ensuring that almost anyone across Africa and tune in and enjoy the app. Enjoying great success across Africa, Coke Studios Africa is looking to spread and expand, and make it even easier for youth across Africa to listen to the best African music.
