Boomplay Kenya celebrates Kenyan Women in Music on exclusive playlist launched on Women's Day


Boomplay, the number one music streaming and download app in Africa, will celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 this Friday (8th March) by featuring songs, albums and playlists championed by creative and talented Kenyan women on all sections of its homepage through the “Boom Queens” app takeover and play time campaign.

On International Women’s Day, the Boomplay app will have a feminine look, to showcase, promote and celebrate women in music. From Fena, Avril, Muthoni The Drummer Queen, Evelyn Wanjiru, Mercy Masika, Akothee, Nadia Mukami, Vivian, Victoria Kimani, Gloria Muliro to Efya, Rihanna and Vanessa Mdee, the playlist will also include leading Kenyan female artists and others from around the globe who continue to inspire and change the narrative one day at a time in the male-dominated industry.

On this initiative, Head of Public Relations Boomplay, Ms Tosin Sorinola said, “The conversation on gender equality and parity is one that is constantly ongoing and on occasions like this, it is important for us as a platform with so much interest in promoting Women in Music, to show our support in the best way possible. This is not a one-off campaign for us, it’s one that started since inception and will continue, a pledge evident in our daily and weekly activities and inclusions.”
