UAE-based music streaming platform, Anghami, has reportedly inked a partnership with Amazon to give Prime subscribers free access to the company’s premium paid tier service, Anghami Plus, in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
Under the deal, Prime members in these countries will be getting a six-month free subscription to Anghami Plus, followed by 50% off the subscription charges for a period of next six months.
According to Ronaldo Mouchawar, Amazon’s Vice President of Middle East and North Africa, the company is persistently looking for ways for making the lives of Prime subscribers better, easier, and more fun with Amazon Prime every day.
Mouchawar further added that the partnership with Anghami is a perfect example of how the company works together with prominent local brands for innovating on behalf of the members, providing them the best possible experience. The company is thrilled to see Prime subscribers in both the UAE and Saudi Arabia enjoy Anghami Plus and all it has to provide, alongside other entertainment, savings, and shopping benefits that are already included in their membership, stated Mouchawar.
Under this collaboration, Anghami will give Prime members in the two regions access to millions of podcasts and songs. Anghami’s premium paid tier service comprises repeat, scrub, and rewind features, and provides unlimited downloads, ad-free music, multi-device play, and lyrics.
As per Anghami CTO and Co-founder, Elie Habib, as the major music streaming platform of the region which provides users access to more than 57 million international and Arabic songs, the company is extremely thrilled to offer Anghami with Prime subscriptions across the UAE and Saudi Arabia via this exclusive deal.
It is to be noted that the agreement will result in the listing of Anghami on the NASDAQ in New York. The announcement comes numerous months after Anghami signed a definitive merger agreement with Vistas Media Acquisition Company Inc., a publicly traded SPAC (special purpose acquisition company).
