simfy africa passes one year milestone

simfy africa, which has now passed the all-important milestone of one year live to market in South Africa, has announced its charts for its first year.


It was the first music streaming service to go live in South Africa, and has gained popularity ever since.

simfy africa is closing in on 7 million overall plays by its users since launch and with over 20 million tracks to choose from, this shows the diversity of the charts.

The most popular South African artist is Jimmy Nevis, followed by Kongos and Joyous Celebration. Jimmy Nevis emerged as the very first South African artist to enter the Top 10 after launch.

Jimmy Nevis was delighted, saying “I am grateful to simfy africa for giving me the platform to share my music, and blessed to have such amazing fans who support me, as a South African artist. Thank you and Happy Birthday to simfyafrica! Here’s to another successful year ahead.”

Honours for the top South African album go to ‘Wilder as die Wildtuin’ by Die Heuwels Fantasties.

Pierre Greeff of Die Heuwels Fantasties commented: “It is such a surprise and honour that our favourite Die Heuwels Fantasties album is the most streamed local album! Thank you simfy africa for being the first streaming service in our market and for your support – also to those of you who are listening… “Musiek is geniet!”
