On this occasion of renewing the agreement, Mr. Salem al-Hindi, CEO of Rotana Music, said: “Rotana has always been a pioneer in its field to serve and delight the Saudi, Gulf, and Arab audiences with whom we have built over the years a bridge of trust and appreciation in order for them to acquire excellence from Rotana in everything they seek. To achieve this in the music and entertainment industry, keeping pace with market changes and expanding the circle of creativity and innovation, and after cooperation with the Anghami platform that yielded positive results, we are pleased to renew this partnership, which will also contribute to consolidating the strong relationship between Rotana and its artists. We are all confident that what is coming between Rotana and Anghami will help expand our presence by delivering Rotana music to listeners worldwide.”
