Airtel, one of Nigeria’s telecommunications services company, has joined the music app race with the release of Wynk, a music streaming and download app. The app will allow subscribers unlimited access to international and Nigerian songs on their mobile devices.

Wynk allows its users to stream or download various genres of music from major international music labels such as Sony Music, Universal and EMI and create their own unique playlists on their devices. Users with premium subscription are afforded the  ability to sync their playlists to three devices. The app is available for Android, iOS, Windows and Mac OS.


“Wynk underlines our commitment to provide exclusive and exceptional entertainment packages for customers,” Mr. Maurice Newa, Airtel Nigeria’s chief commercial officer said. “Especially those who are music lovers.”

Wynk.ng joins the ranks of iRoking, Mdundo (which just launched in Nigeria), MTN MusicPlus (that offers music downloads at affordable prices),  Spinlet (purported to be the iTunes of Africa), SOLO Music and NotJustOk.com which offers unlimited streaming and downloading for free.

So many music apps.
