How do I load my music?

Our local aggregator, Exactmobile, will digitise the music from CD and load it as soon as contracts are signed. Its that easy. We encourage all South African artists and labels to sign up to the music revolution.
Davin Mole, the CEO and co-founder of eXactmobile, says “Over the past 12 years plus I am proud to say we have achieved some remarkable feats in helping to shape the way South Africans consume digital content, especially through mobile. However it is no exaggeration to say that everything we have done to date has been a warm up for this – the main event. Even as early as 2005 we knew that eventually with the way the internet and mobile phones were evolving there would be an ‘end game’ way to consume music and we knew that roughly speaking it would look like simfy africa. Hence to have just launched a service which we know will dramatically change the way South Africans consume music in the years and decades to come, is a very satisfying milestone for eXactmobile and the great team of people behind it”.
It’s simple. It’s simfy africa. It’s full stream ahead!
