Building up on their already impressive catalogue of digital content, MTN Nigeria has launched a music-streaming platform named “MusicTime!”.
MusicTime!, a platform with music from across the globe, allows users to stream songs from millions of selections. The App launched a year ago in South Africa. The app is developed in partnership with Simfy Africa

Making the announcement, the Chief Operating Officer of MTN Nigeria, Mazen Mroue said, “MTN Nigeria is proud to launch yet another service that is focused on customer satisfaction and digital inclusion. We know that music is a big part of the Nigerian culture, and in recent times, we have seen talented Nigerians take the world by storm through the fantastic music they create. MusicTime! is a platform that ensures accessibility to these great Nigerian and African music across the world.”
He went further by saying, “We are creating the right channels and ecosystems that will help Nigerians create, play and share their boundless creativity with the rest of the world without limitations or barriers. By providing an avenue for local musicians to stream their music to a global audience while still maintaining a strong local bond, MusicTime! will complement the efforts of the government in the actualisation of its local musical content drive.”
