You can make your songs trend with this Mobile App!
The app that officially got into the market in 2018 currently boasts of more than 20 million subscribers across Africa and in its efforts to build the largest video community by the use of mobile phones. Vskit is currently working with more than 500 artists across Africa as Brand Ambassadors.
The app created by Transsnet Media is available on the App Store, Google Play store and Palmstore on Tecno and Infinix phones, and can also be used to edit videos.
According to Vskit, they chose Africa because there are people ready to produce content that directly reflects their generational and cultural landscape, and the app caters for both content creators and the consumers.
“We chose the African market as our launch pad because we feel that there’s a convergence of opportunities currently happening. Since our umbrella company manufactures and sells mobile handsets, we know that the price points for smart phones with good quality cameras have fallen, making it easier for many capable content creators to shoot videos affordably,” said Vskit Marketing Manager David Mwawasi.
Vskit has different categories of videos that have attracted a lot of interest from their consumers which include; Light Drama, Beauty and Fashion, Slapstick Humor and Popular Dances.

We are currently working with over 500 artists in the same capacity,” added Mwawasi.
Ben C, who also talked to this journalist about being Vskit brand ambassador said; “The opportunity came after the song Church Girl which I have featured my wife. It went viral on the app and has over 30 million views and this is what prompted Vskit to reach out to me among other companies.”
