    ◎Disrupt Africa報導,音樂串流媒體服務Mdundo專注於撒哈拉以南非洲,並在包括肯亞,坦尚尼亞,奈及利亞和迦納在內的十幾個國家/地區營運,並將在丹麥的那斯達克上市。
    ◎雖然該服務地區為肯亞,但其總部位於丹麥,因此在當地上市,目的是籌集資金,以提高整個非洲的市佔。非洲串流媒體平台的使用正開始獲得重要動力-Mdundo感到有能力加強其在辛巴威,莫三比克和安哥拉等其他市場的平台。
    ◎市場似乎也對此表示認同,Mdundo的股票發售要從大約3000名投資者那裡籌集640萬美元。這顯示出音樂串流框架在整個非洲的建立速度有多快。
    ◎目前大型西方數位訊號處理DSPs與非洲接觸時採取的方法截然不同:Spotify僅在五個國家(主要在北非)可用,而Apple Music則有25個國家可用。

    詳細全文:

    Music streaming service Mdundo, which focusses on sub-Saharan Africa and operates in a dozen or so countries, including Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria and Ghana, is to list shares on the Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark, reports Disrupt Africa.
    Whilst the service is Kenyan-based, its headquarters are in Denmark, hence the localised listing. The intention is to raise money to grow market share across Africa, where the use of streaming platforms is starting to gain critical momentum – and Mdundo feels well-placed to strengthen its platform in other markets, like Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Angola.
    The market seems to agree, with Mdundo’s share sale offer raising the equivalent of $6.4 million from 3000 investors. It’s indicative of how fast the music streaming framework is establishing itself across Africa, as the physical technology (smartphones) and digital technology (an array of localised DSPs) unite with the public’s willingness to pay for music.
    Large western DSPs are taking quite different approaches when engaging with Africa: Spotify is only available in five countries, mainly in North Africa, while Apple Music is now available in 25 countries on the continent.
