Published

unnamed 7

Apple Music’s Home Session features reimagined signature songs and thoughtful covers and today, Nigerian-born Afropop tour de force Joeboy (real name Joseph Akinwale) releases his own stripped down versions.

 

“I selected these songs because they are really beautiful and they signify where I’m at mentally, one way or the other. What feels really special to me is the soul and the sincerity in the delivery of my vocals, the emotions it invokes. As a result, I think I am more mature, more precise, and more intentional with the way I go about my music,” Joeboy tells Apple Music.

 

The Home Session EP, available to stream on Apple Music in Spatial Audio, will feature four exclusive unplugged tracks from the smooth singer, smash hit singles “Sip (Alcohol)”,“Contour” and his latest release “Body & Soul”, as well as a cover of Sean Kingston’s summer earworm single, “Beautiful Girls”.

 

“‘Beautiful Girl’ by Sean Kingston was basically the soundtrack of my early teen years and reminds me of when I started crushing on girls. The song really influenced my writing ability and cemented my love for pop-dancehall love songs,” he explains.

 

After joining Mr Eazi’s emPawa Africa platform in 2019, Joeboy’s career skyrocketed in the wake of a string of hit single releases, with “Sip (Alcohol).” And with his highly-anticipated album on the way, Joeboy is set to be a staple on playlists and screens for years to come.

 

Discover Joeboy’s exclusive Apple Music Home Session EP and his knack for weaving poignant stories with catchy lyrics to create pop-leaning R&B hits.

DSTV CEO04697

At the heart of any business is the customer and at DStv Ghana, the goal is to evolve daily to meet the demands of the ever-changing and competitive market. In a bid to cater to its wide array of audiences, Africa’s number one Pay TV company, MultiChoice Africa has repositioned its commercial service “DStv For Business” with packages specially curated with the right edutainment content to suit various businesses.

According to the Acting Head, DStv For Business, Kelvin Kamasa, “our objective is to deliver a pay TV experience designed for your business. The content and packages are specifically curated to seamlessly fit into the way commercial customers consume it. Our solution for hotels for instance allows guest in different rooms to watch their choice of channels without the intervention of the front desk personnel. Your clientele can continue watching their favourite shows/channels whenever they are on the road for business or stop by your office, hotel, or pub. DStv For Business has a tailored package to suit your business size and pocket so you can have the best working moments with DStv.”

MultiChoice Ghana continues to improve its service offerings over time, with the addition of consultancy service for High-rise buildings, multiple user dwelling on how DStv can be installed. The DStv For Business unit can advise on countless options to ensure the incorporation of either our IPTV service or other alternatives to a seamless and cost-effective TV entertainment solution to your high rise or estate project. According to the Managing Director, MultiChoice Ghana, Alex Okyere, the business is all about the customer’s experience, and the greatest motivation for his team is to offer more value for money to not just our domestic users but commercial users.

DStv For Business has three main offers; DStv Work, DStv Play and DStv Stay. Each package is tailored to suit the needs of offices, bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels and so on. The essence of this, Kelvin Kamasa explains, is to tailor content to specific customers to enhance their viewing experience. Instead of having to watch a wide array of content, these DStv For Business packages now give you what you want based on business customers’ needs and preferences.

The DStv Work package offers the latest news headlines from around the world, sports, weather updates and other work-related entertainment. The goal here is to set the tone for a stimulating work environment and keep everyone well informed. The Work packages are best suited for offices, banks, and other corporate organizations.

The DStv Play packages are best suited for businesses such as pubs, restaurants, bars, clubs, café, and betting houses. These packages enhance the guest’s experience and ensure that they are always entertained with their favourite sports programmes and other first-class entertainment.

The DStv Stay packages are suited for hotels, motels, lodges, resorts, Air BnB’s and serviced apartments. Giving each guest whether a kid, adult or elderly a memorable in-room experience during their stay.

One important feature is that these packages they can be tailored to customers’ budget. This means that customers can enjoy entertainment at a certain threshold which is a unique offer. For less than Ghs 170, one can enjoy several channels. For instance, the DStv Stay (Basic), offers customers an array of entertainment with more than ten channels spanning sports, news, kiddies’ channel, and music with just GHs77.

Businesses also have the flexibility of choosing a package that perfectly suits your business model without worrying about not having the popular channels needed by customers. From small entrepreneurs to 5-star hotels, multinational corporations and government agencies, every business has something that works for them.

For hotels, their customers get a mix of carefully selected movies, music, and sports channels as well as documentary channels. This is the same for a financial establishment where customers are more concerned about the latest updates from the financial sector and latest news over that of a music or movie channel like Akwaaba Magic Abusua and ROK Gh. Similarly,  fast-food joints, pubs and clubs will be in tune with Trace Jama, Akwaaba Magic, SuperSports channels over National Geographic Channel or News channels.

GOtv Ghana: 10 years of Excellent Customer Experience

Published

GOtv 10

A decade ago, GOtv appeared on the scene of digital pay TV in Ghana and has since transformed it with technologically advanced, easily accessible, affordable, and customer-friendly packages for Ghanaians. Currently available in over 25 cities across 9 regions, GOtv boasts of the widest privately owned digital terrestrial television (DTT) network in Ghana despite only being here 10 years.

To ensure the best customer experience while pushing Ghana’s transition from analogue to digital transmission, GOtv began operations in January 2013 with the DVB-T2 decoder a second-generation technology regarded as one of the most advanced broadcast infrastructures globally and approved by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) as the standard for digital television broadcasting. GOtv was the first DTT provider in Ghana to use this infrastructure.

Asides from delivering a higher number of channels 20 per frequency when compared to DVB-T1 technology which allows 12 channels per frequency DVB-T2 technology gives access to free-to-air channels on the expiration of one’s subscription and delivers a far superior digital, audio-visual quality, all for the viewing pleasure of its customers at extremely affordable rates.

GOtv also has an Enhanced Decoder Notification (EDN) function which keeps subscribers abreast of information such as number of viewing days left before the next payment, latest special offers and discounts, campaigns, information on new content and upcoming celebrations to improve their viewing experience.

Tech innovations such as the MyGOtv app allows customers to use several self-service options to quickly resolve issues such as clearing error codes, checking account balance, subscription renewal, package change, etc., without having to physically visit a GOtv office.

Other self-service platforms by GOtv to resolve issues instantly for improved customer experience include the *759# USSD code; payment options such as mobile money services and bank apps; GOtv’ s social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram) and the GOtv website; and a self-registration platform via a USSD string *759#.

Furthermore, in line with the company’s customer-centric tradition at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic presented over $100,000 dollars of PPEs to Ga East Hospital in Accra, the Okomfo Ankoye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi and the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital in Cape Coast in September and October 2020.

 During this period GOtv Ghana introduced the ‘We’ve Got you’ offer to cushion customer from harsh economic effect of the pandemic on its subscribers.

During the lockdown period active and disconnected GOtv subscribers enjoyed discounts plus got upgraded to the next viewing package when they resubscribed for their current package so customers and their families during the lockdown could stay edutained.

In its usual way of keeping the family bond together with top quality entertaining content, on the 1st of November 2021, GOtv brought more lifestyle and entertainment channels/content from DStv to its GOtv subscribers with the introduction of a new package known as GOtv SUPA.
