Nigeria’s digital publishing company, Publiseer, is set to partner with Google Play Books to support Google’s digital book distribution service in fulfilling the publishing requests it receives in Africa.

Google is looking into ways to support the publishing requests that it received from Africa and, apparently, Publiseer as the right way to accomplish this.

“We met Phyllis via the Google Ally program, and since then, she has offered invaluable advice to us that has helped us made wiser decisions,” says Chidi Nwaogu, (Co-founder and CEO – Publiseer) who recently emerged a finalist at Opportunity Desk Impact Challenge 2019.

“Since Google Play Books isn’t in Africa and doesn’t plan on expanding to Africa in the nearest future, it has sought to partner with a leading digital book publisher here in Africa to fulfil the publishing requests it receives in Africa, and we are humbled to be considered,” Chidi continued.

This partnership comes at the time Publiseer announced its expansion to Egypt, its first entrance to Northern Africa marking Publiseer’s fourth expansion outside Nigeria.

Publiseer has expanded into Ghana, Kenya and South Africa.

This expansion allows Publiseer’s authors and musical artists from Egypt to receive customer support.

Publiseer is a digital publishing company for independent African writers and musicians, founded in 2017 by Chidi Nwaogu and Chika Nwaogu.
