Om Mdundo: 303 millioner afrikanere syd for Sahara har adgang til internettet via deres mobiltelefon - et tal der ventes at vokse til 474 millioner i 2025. Mobilbrugerne lytter til musik på deres mobiltelefon, men det sker primært gennem ulovligt download i lighed med situationen i Europa og USA for 15 år siden. Flere forhold medvirker til, at udviklingen nu går i samme retning som i Vesten, således at musik i større omfang tilgås via lovlige musiktjenester og musiktjenester målrettet markedet.

  • Mdundos marked: Der er få etablerede pladeselskaber i Afrika, og der lyttes meget til ulovlig musik - ligesom det var tilfældet i Danmark for 10-15 år siden. Ca.  80% af den musik der lyttes til i Afrika er afrikansk musik. De globale musiktjenester er delvist tilgængelige på kontinentet, men ikke tilpasset de lokale forbrugerønsker og behov.
  • Mdundos musiktjeneste: Mdundo er udviklet 100% efter de afrikanske forbrugerønsker og behov. Tjenesten kan tilgås online via hjemmesiden mdundo.com og via en android app  - optimeret til ustabile internetforbindelser og low-end smartphones.
  • Mdundos strategi: Mdundo har fokus på 15 lande i Afrika, men med et ekstra kommercielt fokus i Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana og Uganda. Mdundo vil være den førende, lovlige panafrikanske musikplatform og forventer aggressiv brugervækst i fremtiden via geografisk ekspansion samt via panafrikanske partnere.
