I have just downloaded, signed up and logged in. The experience was smooth. It's awesome to have an alternative to spotify, especially for the African music. Please add integration to scrobble, the only reason I haven't given it 5 stars (4 stars) Update Downgraded to 3 stars. The app only plays one song even after selecting a playlist!!🙄🙄

For a start, it is great. Originals are great and tracks already downloaded on my Smubu-African, are great at the same tym, help in changing African music and make it enjoyable and educative. We hope for the best and thanks. We still need more advancement when it comes to African-Music. However, the downloading bug tht is fixed again, I hope it saves me trouble of downloading, coz, still my songs of Judith Babirye, are still lagging, I just feel sad for that. hope this bug fixed will fight it.
