spotify logo

Spotify had been a popular music streaming platform in Kenya ever before the service was officially available in the country. Spotify officially launched in Kenya earlier this year and given that this is the end of the year, the company is sharing some stats showing what Kenya listened to throughout the year.

Spotify wrapped is its annual round-up of the top artists, albums, songs and playlists of the year as streamed by users on the platform from around the world.

Spotify has also unveiled its Wrapped creator experience for artists. With access to their own individualised Wrapped microsite experience, creators get to see how their fans listened to their music this year. Check out Spotify for Artists .
