African music app Boomplay Music registered 29 million users and 10 million installations via Google Play in 1 week.
Speaking during a press conference in Lagos, Nigeria, Boomplay PR head Tosin Sorinola said the company would continue to enhance its user interface to increase music distribution. She also revealed that an iOS version would be made available later in the year.
“This is another major milestone for Boomplay Music and we are more than grateful for the support and involvement of our content providers, users and the team that made it possible to achieve this and sharing the vision of making Boomplay Music the No 1 music app in Africa,” Sorinola said.
Senior East Africa marketing manager Martha Huro said, “Boomplay Music has reached a new high by clocking 10 million installs on Google Play Store. We are one step closer to making a healthy, thriving and functional music distribution future that accommodates the content provider and user’s needs.”
Late last year, Boomplay was named Best African App at the AppsAfrica.com Awards, a platform celebrating African technology.
