On Thursday evening, Lebanon‘s gorgeous historical landmark, the Raouche Rock in Beirut, illuminated with Anghami‘s logo to celebrate the Lebanese company’s major achievement of listing on New York’s Nasdaq stock exchange.
Abu Dhabi-based Anghami, the leading music streaming platform in the MENA region, is the first tech company in the region to hit the charts on Nasdaq and go public.
“Going global on the NASDAQ allows us to supercharge our growth, and move deeper into the Middle East & beyond,” Anghami’s Co-founder, Chairman, and CTO, Elie Habib told The961.
Since announcing the news, Anghami has been receiving positive and supportive feedback from the community.
The961 learned that the lighting event happened spontaneously. Despite having put together the event in the spur of the moment, the company made sure to take the opportunity to send a message of gratitude to the Lebanese for believing in the company and providing love and support.
“Lebanon, thank you for your trust,” read the message.
Not only was this Beirut landmark lit in celebration of this feat, but other landmark buildings were also previously lit with the Anghami logo like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Cairo Tower in Egypt.
