This partnership which was announced last week adds ChopUp’s selection of African mobile games to GameMine’s numerous library of titles, making them available to the millions of GameMine‘s subscribers around the world. It is also in furtherance of GameMine‘s efforts to collaborating with African companies to create economic opportunities and to providing culturally relevant games for its African subscriber base.

Speaking on this partnerhip, Daniel Starr, CEO GameMine says,

As GameMine continues to expand and refine our mobile game catalog, we are excited to be able to offer localized content to our subscribers. We have a very strong presence in Africa and I’m confident ChopUp’s games will really resonate with our African subscribers.

With a user base of 700,000, ChopUp’s user base is expected to rise to millions with this new agreement considering the large user base of the American company.

Zubair Abubakar, Co-founder of ChopUp explained what the partnership would mean for the company:

The GameMine partnership puts our company on the international stage and distributes our games to millions of people around the world. This huge boost in exposure is fantastic for our company, and we’re impressed that GameMine has shown so much interest in working with local businesses like ours. GameMine is taking concrete, proactive steps to create legitimate economic opportunities in geographic regions that need them, and we are very thankful for this.

Recently, GameMine has been working to establish itself across Africa, entering into multiple partnerships with large companies including international mobile carriers, Vodacom and Orange. Now, with its entry into Africa’s mobile gaming industry, the company is looking to foster the local game development community.
