Anghami, being the top music streaming platform in Egypt and the region – was Nescafe’s partner of choice. To link offline with online – Nescafe released 48 different Nescafe 3in1 sachets for each university major. Users were asked to scan their Nescafe 3in1 sachet, using Anghami’s camera to unlock a personalized studying playlist made by Anghami based on each user’s music DNA. All generated playlists were fully Nescafe 3in1 branded. To own the studying experience on Anghami and offer users an extended experience – Nescafe sponsored the “Focus” Tab to create the affinity of the studying occasion/moment with the brand hence making Nescafe 3in1 the official beverage brand of the Egyptian students.


Another pillar of the campaign was developing specific university anthems tailored to every college degree. Nescafe created the different anthems catered to medicine, commerce and art major students. The anthems were created to strengthen the relationship between students and their field of study, so they would be proud of who they want to become. These anthems were produced in a video format that were promoted the major social and video platforms in the country: Facebook and YouTube. The Nescafe 3in1 Anthems were also hosted on Anghami, Nescafe’s main campaign pillar to make them easily accessible to the users. 

A scan to unlock feature was developed through Anghami’s camera feature. Users were enticed to engage directly with the Nescafe sachet while studying through a new feature on Anghami that allows them to scan a sachet and unlock a personalized studying playlist based on the users’ music DNA; students then were redirected to a submit page and entered the draw for a chance to win 1 month of Anghami Plus!

To further boost engagement the Focus Tab was sponsored on Anghami offering users a wide range of playlists that would help them study better. Major-focused videos were also created to encourage students to get their personalized sachets and scan them.
