CAPE TOWN - A platform that has been successfully hosting local talent for over a year now, TurnUp Music has partnered with Samsung and announced the launch of a streaming service on the Samsung Z Series mobile devices.


 
Through this  partnership, TurnUp Music and Samsung are focussed on the development and growth of local artists’ careers through various collaborative opportunities and a strong market reach.
 
“Samsung, as the global smartphone leader, is the perfect partner to accelerate not just the streaming platform, but also to reduce barriers to entry across Africa. The 4G enabled Z Series devices are both accessible and affordable, making it a great tool for listening to music and watching videos” said Thabiet Allie, CEO of TurnUp Music.
 
The announcement of the partnership was unveiled at AfricaCom, one of the largest African telecoms, media and technology events and met with great support from key industry experts and delegates at the event.
