MTN Nigeria has partnered United States-based digital music platform, Apple Music, to offer free access to a premium selection of songs as part of efforts to ensure customers can enjoy quality entertainment on the go. MTN customers who subscribe to the service will have access to Apple Music’s catalogue of over 100 million local and international songs.
The partnership will ensure subscribers enjoy six months free trial on Apple Music, courtesy of MTN Nigeria. After the free trial, they can continue to stream or download music on the platform for a monthly fee. This offer is open to iOS and Android devices.
MTN customers will also be able to pay for the music streaming service with their airtime balance. This is available to both prepaid and postpaid customers on the MTN network.
“We are always on the lookout for opportunities that allow us to do more for our customers and provide them with resources and tools that fit into their lifestyle. Music forms a huge part of our lives as Africans. With this partnership, we seek to advance music distribution in Nigeria and make consumption easier for Nigerians. The Apple Music catalogue houses millions of songs of both local and foreign origin. We are excited at the prospects of this partnership and look forward to promising times,” A’isha Umar-Mumuni, the Chief Digital Officer, MTN Nigeria, said.
This offer will be available from April 14, 2023. Customers can sign up via the MTN Play portal by clicking https://play.mtn.ng/apple-music; myMTN App and the MTN official website www.mtn.ng. Alternatively, you can also subscribe via SMS by sending “MUSIC” to 8000 or dialing 447241#.
