How do I pay for Apple Music in Nigeria today without virtual cards from fintech apps? MTN has partnered with Apple Music to make digital music streaming a breeze for Nigerians.

In this rising naira card payment/virtual cards restriction era, Nigerian telcos, and the ICT sector will probably need to employ inventive ways to simplify access to music streaming platforms like Apple Music subscriptions. Or some hotshot telco from Dallas will beat them to the punch and mount a telecom company that offers Nigerian users convenience when subscribing to online music platforms.

Surprisingly, Africa’s leading telecommunications group MTN stepped in to salvage the naira card ban situation affecting payment for music subscriptions. MTN has agreed to spearhead Apple music subscriptions by allowing subscribers to pay for the streaming service using airtime.
