UNIVERSAL EXPANDS IN AFRICA

Universal Music Group (UMG) signed a landmark licensing agreement with Boomplay, Africa’s leading music streaming and download service.

Boomplay will distribute music from UMG’s labels through its streaming and download platform in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.

Earlier this year, UMG set up Universal Music Nigeria, a new division within Western Africa to provide artists with opportunities throughout the region and to provide pan-African talent the best possible launch pad for wider international success.
