About Us:

Company Introduction: 303 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to the internet on their phones – this is expected to grow to 474 million in 2025. Mobile subscribers are already listening to music on their phones, but primarily through illegal downloads similar to the situation in Europe and the US around 15 years ago. For several reasons, Africa is now moving in the same direction as the West and music is increasingly accessed through legal music services targeting the African market.

Our Market: There are (generally speaking) few record labels in Africa and illegally-distributed music is very popular – just as it was in the West in the past. Global music service providers are partly available in Africa, but they aren’t tailored to local consumers’ listening habits. Around 80% of all the music enjoyed on the continent is created by African artists.
Our Music Service: We are 100% tailor-made for audiences across Africa. Our music platform is accessed through our mobile website, and through our android app. It is optimized for unstable internet connections and affordable smartphones, popular with African consumers.
Our Strategy: We are focusing on 15 countries in Africa with a commercial focus in Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana and Uganda. We want to be the premier, legal, pan-African music service and we expect significant growth over the next five years through geographical expansion and pan-African partnerships.



Bachelor Degree level ideally in communication, business or related field.
Min. 5 years of experience in a similar role, preferable across Africa at agencies or media / entertainment companies.
Excellent understanding of data and data visualization as well as strong creative skills. Ability to swiftly and beautifully create sales proposals / presentations.
Track record of end-to-end corporate sales including strategizing, proposal making, pitching and executing.
Good understanding of digital media and advertising.
Strong drive and an ability to work independently and in a team
