BMOBILE is now taking over the livestreaming music app, known as mJams, after Our Telekom Company stopped working with mJams recently.
A statement from mJams said, ‘’the mJams Movement is making a triumphant return to the Solomon Islands following recent developments in which Our Telekom decided to cease supporting the local music streaming app mJams but a new champion has emerged in the form of bmobile.
‘’The telecommunication company’s involvement ensures that artists in Solomon Islands can once again share their music and earn royalties locally.
‘’This collaboration will provide subscribers with access to the finest local music from Solomon Islands artists and other Pacific talents directly on their mobile devices.
‘’Moreover, it reinstates a valuable platform for these artists to connect with their fans and expand their reach both locally and throughout the Pacific region.”
The statement said, ‘’In addition to facilitating music sharing, mJams will distribute a portion of its revenue to artists as royalty payments, ensuring that they are fairly compensated for their creative work.
“Every time a user streams a song on mJams, they are directly supporting local musicians,’’ it said.
Devan Kula, CEO of bmobile Solomon Islands, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership.
“We are thrilled to join forces with mJams in revitalising the local music scene in Solomon Islands.
‘’This collaboration is not only an opportunity for us to support and empower our talented local artists but also a chance to enrich the cultural experience of our subscribers,’’ he said.
“We believe in the power of music to connect communities, and we’re excited to play a part in ensuring these artists receive the recognition and financial support they deserve,’’ Mr Kula added.
With the strong backing of bmobile, the mJams team is eager to elevate the platform to new heights and further promote local music across the region.
