Apple Music Availability Expands Across Africa.

After years of having a restricted market, music is opening up in Africa in a big way.

We have good news for music lovers across the entire African continent – it’s soon going to be a lot easier to listen to your favorite music. So long as you have an internet connection, you’ll be able to find tracks from all your preferred artists whenever you want, any time of the day, all year round. That’s because one of the biggest music platforms in the world is finally expanding its operations to cover more African countries after years of demand.

While the rest of the world has been enjoying a revolution in music streaming during recent years, Africa has been left out of the conversation. Large-scale streaming platforms are like online slots websites, but for music rather than gambling. The way online slots websites work is to put as many slots in the same place as possible and allow players to engage with them without having to switch between websites or use multiple usernames and passwords. The ever-increasing availability of online slots websites has led to a huge increase in gambling revenue across Africa, and we can now presumably expect to see the same thing happen with music.

The company that’s just announced the expansion of its African horizons is Apple Music. Although the facility is available in some African countries already, it’s availability has been comparatively limited when compared to its availability across Europe and the rest of the world. Thirteen countries already enjoy access to Apple’s enormous music library – including Ghana, South Africa – and Kenya – but the expansion will launch the service in an additional seventeen countries, and will happen imminently. The move is believed to have come as a response to the fact that more Africans are now catching on to the idea of digital entertainment than ever before, and so Apple finally believes that it’s possible to make a profit from these new internet users.
