Kampala, Uganda – Pulse, Africa’s leading innovative media company, has launched Pulse Uganda on January 17, 2022. Pulse Uganda is partnering with the country’s leading content creators and influencers to bring news and entertainment to Ugandans – via its own platform and large accounts on all major social media channels. Sheila Gashumba, a leading creator in Uganda, remarked on the Pulse Uganda partnership and launch: “I follow Pulse Uganda for the latest entertainment news.”
The expansion of Pulse’s footprint into Uganda aligns with its mission to inform and engage Africa’s young audience – and provide expansive media reach and creative marketing solutions to its partners.
Pulse is a leading digital media publisher already established in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Senegal, making Uganda its fifth market.
The company has built the largest digital community of young people across the continent with over 26 million users and followers. Uganda’s population comprising 77% young people under 30, perfectly aligns with Pulse’s target audience. Pulse Uganda will be informing its audience on its website – www.pulse.ug – as well as on its social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn and YouTube.
Additionally, Pulse will bring its digital marketing and content production expertise to the country in order to support leading brands and agencies in achieving their marketing goals.
Speaking on the launch, Aaron Musoke, Managing Director, Pulse Uganda said “We’re excited to kick off operations in Uganda. Pulse has been hugely successful in other countries in Africa, helping to bring trusted information and relevant entertainment to millions of engaged users across the web and social media.
