JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – MTN South Africa, the mobile network firm, has launched Music+, a platform that offers its users the ability to simultaneously stream and download music and videos offline.
Larry Annetts, Chief Marketing Officer of MTN SA, says one of the key
differentiators of Music+ is that the content is heavily biased in favour of music content from South Africa and across the continent.
“MTN Music+ seeks to develop local content and give aspiring artists a
platform to showcase their talent to a captive audience of millions of
users across the continent.
“Music+ expands the artists’ distribution footprint beyond the narrow confines of their home markets and beyond conventional means. We are pleased to avail this service which we believe will contribute to the development of music across the continent,” says Annetts.
Huawei is the technology partner in the offering.
Edric Chu, Managing Director of Huawei Technologies, says his company is
proud of the role it has played to help MTN to bring this service to its
“The Music+ platform is designed to provide users with an interactive,
user-friendly service. The service is optimized for mobile and online
access to enhance user experience and it requires no significant device
restrictions or additional device requirements.
“Huawei is proud to be part of this initiative that will revolutionise music in South Africa and across the continent,” says Chu.
