  • Partners with Côte d’Ivoire major artists and Orange to deliver affordable and sustainable access to music streaming

Tuned Global, the world’s leading B2B music streaming technology specialist, is to support a major relaunch of popular African music streaming service WAW MUZIK.

Tuned Global has partnered with well-established streaming app WAW MUZIK in a deal that will advance the company’s plans to deliver a more accessible platform. WAW MUZIK seeks to offer greater benefits for users than competing services, all while supporting the development and enhancing the visibility of African artists and labels. With the app revamp initially relaunching in Côte d’Ivoire, WAW MUZIK expects to expand into wider French-speaking African territories.

The new partnership will see WAW MUZIK integrate its own front-end app with Tuned Global’s scalable Streaming Service APIs which will improve the app responsiveness and allow a great user experience regardless of how fast the service grows. Tuned Global will also provide improved management of the entire supply chain to ensure new releases are available quickly with increased security, delivering a catalogue of over 14 million tracks from labels and distributors such as Universal Music Group, Believe, Idol and Keyzit. Under their partnership with mobile operator Orange, WAW MUZIK will continue to function using a subscription model through the telecommunications network to facilitate both mobile money and airtime payments.

Jean-Philippe Audoli, CEO of WAW MUZIKJean-Philippe Audoli, CEO of WAW MUZIK, commented: “Tuned Global’s APIs give us ready-made access to advanced streaming features that allow us to provide the best possible service for our customers. We were particularly impressed by their automated content delivery technology, which guarantees that our users will be able to search for and access the content they want. Knowing our new back-end technology is fully scalable and reliable gives us all the more confidence in our plans to expand into new territories and grow our business further. This allows us to strengthen the West African music industry with improved remuneration of rights holders, and nurture cultural exchanges with other territories.”

The deal will see WAW MUZIK benefit from Tuned Global’s status as a one-stop-shop streaming provider for music, podcast, audiobook, video and live offering content delivery, cloud-based infrastructure, licensor reporting and billing.
