“We have taken the decision to at the moment only serve users from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Egypt, and South Africa. We will be expanding to other African countries in the near future. For now, users from outside these five African countries will not be able to access Playfre” says Chika Nwaogu, CEO of Playfre Africa.

“We are taking this bold step to avoid breaking any international laws. Not like we are currently doing so, but we will love to understand the laws of a country and have a legal representative there before expanding our services to that country” Chika Nwaogu continued.
