MSM launches first prototype of Megastar Millionaire platform
MSM Corporation today announced that it had successfully achieved a prototype version of its online talent competition, Megastar Millionaire.
The creation of the prototype has come ahead of schedule and contains the basic features and functionalities that will distinguish the contest.

The data received from this audience will be used for qualitative research including market definition.
A highlight of the prototype is the ability of Megastar Millionaire’s talent and fans to link the platform app top a video player account (such as YouTube) and choose to share videos as well as vote on them.
The final product will also enable visitors to share content via social media platforms.
