Nigeria’s creative and entertaining app, ‘Poppin by Popcentral,’ has emerged among top picks on Apple store.

Yinka Obebe, CEO of Popcentral, said in a statement that ‘Poppin by Popcentral’, the app to the TV channel Popcentral (DSTV 189), was one of the selections by Apple.

Obebe said that other Nigerian-made apps that were spotted out of thousands were Litur, Whot King, Reminders’, Chox Quiz, Shapshap and Beni Hop.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Popping by Popcentral is a second screen real-time engagement app and mobile destination for content from Popcentral TV.

According to him, it is home to a variety of contents from lifestyle, food shows, dramas, wellness, talk shows, a telemarketing show and much more.

He said that it was launched in December 2019, Poppin allows viewers to have access to their favourite shows on Popcentral TV while on the go.

“Poppin is basically an app that ensures you can always stay tuned to your favourite shows on Popcentral TV right on your mobile device.

‘’Even when you have missed the shows, not to worry, you can still catch it on the Poppin app.

‘’Popcentral, arguably the fastest-growing media platform in Nigeria with a focus for the young audience, is redefining content co-creation, social engagement and television viewership,’’ he said.

Obebe said that Poppin, the innovation by Popcentral, now brings free live TV to the fingertips of a very vibrant and mobile audience in Nigeria.

According to him, Poppin app is currently available and can be downloaded on Google Play, Apple App Store as well as Palm Store.

Obebe, however, appreciated Apple for recognising, selecting and showcasing Poppin to mark Nigeria’s 60th independence.
