The partnership will offer Airtel customers complimentary data that can be used exclusively on the Spotify platform whenever they purchase data bundles. 

Commenting on the partnership, Airtel Nigeria’s Chief Commercial Officer, Godfrey Efeurhobo, said the company’s partnership with Spotify is yet another demonstration of its commitment to creating opportunities that will entertain, excite, delight and reward customers on its network. 

“Airtel is positioned as the network of first choice for music, youth culture and innovation and we are delighted to partner with Spotify to deliver sheer happiness at the fingertips of our esteemed customers across the country. We believe this partnership will not only empower and reward our customers but will also enable them to enjoy themselves thoroughly as they connect to the artists and songs they cherish,” said Efeurhobo. 

Fergal Walker, Director Freemium Partnerships at Spotify says: “We’re excited to announce our first partnership in Africa. Airtel, one of Nigeria’s leading mobile network, was a natural choice and shared our vision to enable Nigerians to access great audio and music wherever they are for free.”
