Well, with how popular WhatsApp is, can MTN instant messaging app really rival with it?, looking at how many other Instant messaging apps that tried doing that but failed.

The answer to that question is in posterity for us to see, but before now we could recall that MTN did something like this in some years back to rival MXit by creating an instant messaging app called NokNok but couldn’t see the light of the day in South Africa.

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.
