Mi-Fone, Africa’s first mobile devices brand has launched its new range of smart phones into the Nigerian market.
The smart phones operate on the Android system and come pre-embedded with localised apps such as Nigerian taxi app, EasyTaxi; Nigerian music blog app, Singuu; the innovative music upload service app called PureSolo and the famous 360Nobs Nigerian social media app. The Mi-Fone range will also feature the company’s owned Oju Africa app.
Oju Africa first garnered international attention with the launch of the first ethnically diverse emoticons.
A statement from the company said in the past three weeks the Afro Emoticons from Oju Africa have had the world abuzz, with over 22,000 downloads of the free app from Google Play in just four days, of which the majority of those downloads have originated from the United States.
Powered by Mi-Fone (the first African mobile devices brand), “Oju”, literally meaning “faces” in the Yoruba language, is an innovation born out of the motherland. And it is here in the motherland that the full range of 65 Afro Emoticons are to be revealed at the Nigerian launch scheduled to take place at the luxurious new venue, Miliki on Victoria Island, Lagos on Monday, May 26th.
