The service has seen massive growth as it has inadvertently found a huge audience with Afrobeats audience and content creators because of its freemium model that has allowed both free and premium content delivered to its teeming African audience. According to Audiomack, the opening of a Nigeria office would only feel like poetic justice as unlike other streaming giants that snub most of Africa, Audiomack has embraced Africa the most and that gesture has been rewarded with 1600% in its total plays from Africa. The new office will be headed by industry pros, Adeyemi Adetunji (head of operations), Charlotte Bwana (media partnership and business development) and Olive Uche (content strategy).
