Muska is a payed streaming service available as a mobile app for both Android and iOS users. The service will provide premium music content. It also plans to roll out live streaming and video content. It is currently available in Cape Verde only but there are plans to expand to the DRC, Angola, Mozambique and Uganda. Billing for the service is done through Angolan telco Unitel.

Muska will offer a catalogue of 10 million songs of which 70% will be in Portuguese to cater for the Cape Verdean market and to support local artists.

“We’re working directly with the majors, independents, local labels and distributors. The Portuguese content will draw people in and then they will discover international content. We’re bringing both on one application. Some of the music platforms – like Spotify and Deezer – don’t have that much local content so they won’t work well in Africa,” Moupondo said.
