JOOX exits: Dictator’s daughter’s music app to cease operations following boycott

JOOX Myanmar, a music steaming application partially owned by coup leader Min Aung Hlaing’s daughter Thiri Thet Mon, will be ending its operations within Burma, the company has announced.

JOOX’s services will cease to be available in the country by July 6, according to the announcement.

The application, owned by Chinese tech giant Tencent, is the largest music streaming application in Asia.

JOOX entered Burma in 2015 and was popular among domestic users before a post-coup boycott.

According to an announcement made by the NUG on Oct. 18, 2021, Joox Myanmar, labelled by the parallel government as a “terrorist business”, was one of 15 major companies owned by the SAC leader’s family.

The NUG’s Ministry of Economy and Commerce has said it will take action against shareholders and staff of businesses found to have links to the Burmese military.

A number of military-affiliated companies have folded or lost backers since the coup following widespread public boycotts, most notably Myanmar Brewery.
