Nigerian computer programmer; Chika Nwaogu has successfully created the first Indigenous music streaming platform with over 45 millions songs that can really compete with the likes of Spotify and Deezer.
“Spotify and many other big music streaming platforms have not yet opened their doors to most African countries because of the weak intellectual property laws in these parts of the world, thus making these awesome apps unavailable to the African demographic. Those who have opened their doors to us, still charge monthly to stream unlimited music” Chika said while speaking on why he embarked on creating Playfre.
