In less than 24 hours since the official announcement, we can confirm that Spotify has begun its rollout into the new markets, and is already live in Nigeria and Ghana. The wait is finally over and this should see an end to the other unapproved ways users in these ineligible countries use to access the app.

Spotify Premium prices in Ghana

Upgrading to premium should obviously be the next step. Personally, Spotify's pricing in both Ghana and Nigeria makes so much sense. If you'd like to switch to premium from free for access to all the songs offline, there are 4 subscriptions available, here are the prices:
  • Individual - GH₵17.00
  • Duo (2 accounts) - GH₵22.00
  • Family (6 accounts) - GH₵27.00
  • Student - GH₵8.50

Accepted Payment Methods

For now, the only accepted methods of payment of Spotify subscriptions are Credit/Debit cards. It should not be so long for other local payment methods like MTN MoMo are added—though it hasn't been confirmed yet, Spotify said yesterday that it was going to work with local partners to provide a more tailored experience.

Downloading Spotify

Interestingly, the Spotify app is not officially available (as at the time of writing)  on the iOS App Store for Ghanaian accounts—we believe is being worked on but Android users can install the APK. Spotify is available on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, online (Web), Xbox, PlayStation and more. Visit to install in on your desired device.
