MTN Zambia, in partnership with Simfy Africa, has officially launched the free instant messaging app ‘Ayoba’ which is available for Android devices downloadable from the Google play store.

Ayoba users can securely send and receive text messages, voice messages, videos, images, audio and other files with any of their contacts, regardless of whether they have the app or not, using their mobile device.

“Ayoba is an exceptional new product that combines innovation, high-end encryption security with convenience of service to ensure that we provide our customers with the utmost satisfaction in terms of their digital experience,” says MTN Zambia CEO, Bart Hofker.

“2020 has not been an easy year so far especially with the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is easy for people to get discouraged in these moments and to look for relief from their anxiety. That is why we are offering our customers a chance to experience a brighter side of life during these dark times by embracing the use of our innovative products and services such as Ayoba to stay connected with their friends and loved ones and also stay entertained.”

MTN Zambia says that customers who download the Ayoba app will be able to do so for free and on top of that, they will not be charged to send and receive content.

“The FREE data usage on Ayoba applies to all our customers from the moment that they install the App for the first time. After the first three months of free data usage on Ayoba, our customers can subscribe for Ayoba bundles as low as K1 to stay connected with friends and loved ones.”
