I believe things should change with this new Instant messaging app from MTN as the company CEO made it known that it will function as the Wechat of Africa.

The IM app will have a mobile payment option for the unbanked and underbanked as well as an in SMS integration that is not reliant on mobile data to function.

The IM app will also allow its users to chat with anyone on a mobile device, regardless of whether they have the application or not.
