A US-based Sierra Leonean, Hafiz Alhassan Kanu has created an app called Supfrica.
The app is a replica of WhatsApp but also 2× faster than the popular app when features like message, voice and video calls were compared.
The app was released on Google Play Store last year, December 11, 2020, by Techfrica, a company owned by Hassan Hafiz Bakarr-Kanu Sr.
The App became popular to Sierra Leoneans when Salone Messenger broke the silence on the 5th of January in a Facebook post which went viral on Facebook and off Facebook.
The app has reportedly reached over 19,000+ downloads on Google Play Store; making it the fastest app made by a Sierra Leonean to climax that far, and the most talked-about app in Sierra Leone and Africa as a whole.
The app is also rated number 1 on Google Play Store Top Free Apps; leading the world’s top messaging apps like WhatsApp, Messenger, Facebook, Telegram, WeChat, etc.
Some of the features of the messaging app, Supfrica are;
– Supfrica’s voice call and video call is faster, cheaper, and audible.
– You can forward messages to more than 20 contacts at once, unlike WhatsApp.
– With Supfrica, you can create a Supfrica group and add an unlimited number of contacts to your group, unlike WhatsApp
– With Supfrica, you can use 2G, 3G, and 4G perfectly without scrambling when calling voice and video calls.
