As a streaming company, Boomplay profiles and segments music data by country, artiste and users in order to provide the actual reflection of music listenership and engagement habits of local music industries in Africa.
The authenticity and relevance of Boomplay’s data and charts as the accurate picture of music consumption are based on Boomplay’s user base, which is largely the lower and middle-class demographic, which is the largest population segment on the continent.
This music demography has been seen as more inclusive because it captures the on-the-ground music taste and habits of music consumers.
Boomplay annual recap provides an overview of music consumption and insights into listeners’ musical taste buds and preferences for the year.
