Boomplay Music Tops the Competition, Is Named Best African APP

Innovation needs to feel inspired yet at the same time accessible.

And the just held Innovation Awards 2017 were a celebration of just that – the best that the continent has to offer in the field of mobile technology.

This is the third showing for an increasingly popular industry and the winners in various categories were a testament to the dedication that developers and users in Africa have, to keep the continent in the spotlight and on the map.

Boomplay Music, by TECNO MOBILE, was the night’s biggest winner – picking up the award for BEST AFRICAN APP against stiff competition that included:

Carter – SA,

Asorbia – Ghana

TrueCaller Africa

FeastFox – SA

Boomplay Music MD Joe said that the focus is now on confronting digital content consumption challenges with new and adaptive innovations through technology.

So what is Boomplay?

Noted as the continent’s fastest growing download and streaming platform, Boom Play was launched on the Google Play Store by TECNO Mobile a year and a half ago, and has currently recorded over 16 million users. Check the app out HERE

Not only does it give you access to a vast catalogue of both local and international songs and videos, it also helps you curate a playlist that makes sense to you – which means that BoomPlay is leading the pack, and its success through the rest of the year and into 2018 seems destined.

The key to a great music player – especially in recent years, with an ever more astute audience, is the capacity towards engagement and interaction – music needs to be as visually stimulating as it is, sonically – and that’s where the dual concept audio visual platform comes from.
