Telecommunications giants MTN has teamed up with Ghanaian music software app, aftown, to enable Ghanaians enjoy unlimited music download streams.

The App with over 51,000 subscribers allows music lovers to download and stream any local music of their choice for as low 20 pesewas for a day, 70 pesewas a week and 2.50p on monthly basis.

The subscription is, however, limited to MTN users only.

Speaking at the launch, Product & Services Senior Manager at MTN, Bless Sefenu Agordjo, said the deal with aftown is geared toward supporting indigenous businesses to grow as well as help young entrepreneurs who want to help with the growth of the creative arts industry in Ghana.

“Our partnership with aftown emanates from our quest for indigenous Ghanaian businesses to grow within our ecosystem and within Ghana where we operate. After vibrant young indigenous young entrepreneurs who want to help the creative arts industry as we have been doing in the past.”

He added that the initiative does not only allow its customers easy accessibility but also affordability on the network’s “4G system which brings speed and easy access to services and products.”

Head of Tech at aftown, Jefferson Seneadza, said the partnership will break the barrier of music enthusiasts being able to stream not only via Mobile Money but with airtime with little.

To him, aftown is not only about streaming but, “for Ghanaian music lovers and even for the artistes because it’s focusing on what we’ve believed which is bringing the artistes and the music you love much closer.”

Artistes such as Worlasi, Sister Derby, Okyeame Kwame, who are beneficiaries of the aftown said it is another source of income and they get to have their music reach a wider audience.

The process involved in getting aftown on a device is to download the app on Google play store, sign up with an email address and a password.
