Ham Enterprises CEO and leading real estate tycoon Hamis Kiggundu wants to rewrite the rules of social media using his newly released Hamz app.
“This is an application aimed at empowering and entertaining mainly the youth with short videos under a minute of both fun and inspiration uploaded and shared by users like is the case with Tiktok and other platforms,” the tycoon says.
With content originating from back home in Uganda, Africa at large, and the other countries where the app will reach, our own traditions, tourist attractions, and culture will easily be marketed across the globe he added.
Put together by Ham Enterprises Limited, this application is available on Android OS, iOS app store, Windows OS all to make sure no one is left out.
One can also check out what’s on the app through their web application but to make and enjoy the most of it one has to download and sign up to the application.
“When one signs up they not only watch the videos like other viewers, they get to have their own account, upload and share content, get to rate it as well as follow other accounts of their choice,” Kiggundu says.
Hamz App is set for a number of mega launches in Nigeria, Canada, and Kampala Uganda among other locations as they look at growing their footprint across the globe.
With major global tech brands like Amazon getting African competitors like Jumia, Kiggundu is positioning Hamz App to be the Tiktok or new social media gem in Africa.
As the numbers and traffic on the application grow, Ham Enterprises is looking at cashing in on the advertising and merchandising dollars besides the money from the big data the app will generate as it goes global.
