Supfrica app; The fastest growing chat app from Africa

Listen to this article

Supfrica Messenger is a messaging and Voice over IP (VoIP) app owned by Techfrica. It was created by a US-based Seirra Leonean called Hafiz Alhassan-Kanu.

Like WhatsApp, It allows users to send text messages and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents and user locations. 

It runs on mobile devices and it is currently on the Google play store. It is seen to be an alternative of the famous WhatsApp and like its name suggests, it is basically a WhatsApp from Africa.

To use the app, you will be required to provide a standard cellular mobile number for registration.

Users of the app, including myself, can confirm that the app is way faster and snappier than WhatsApp. It’s just only a matter of time before it gains world wide recognition.

The following are some of the notable features of the app that sets it apart from WhatsApp;

  • Voice and video calls are faster, audible, and cheaper. Calls are two times faster compared to WhatsApp.
  • You can forward messages to over 20 contacts at a go. WhatsApp allows you to forward up to five chats at a go.
  • You can create a Supfrica group and add an unlimited number of contacts. On the other hand, WhatsApp limits group members to 256.
  • Accepts 2G, 3G, and 4G without scrambled voice or video calls.

The future of this notable messaging app from Africa is very promising. It is the fastest growing messaging app from Africa. I hope it doesn’t follow the mistakes of WhatsApp in terms of privacy policies. This is very important because if users feel their privacy is not respected or their data isn’t safe, it will hinder them from patronizing this great app.
