A Songa verification code will be sent to your phone. Your phone should be able to detect the code and automatically fill it out.  If your phone doesn’t detect the code, you’ll need to copy it from your sms and paste it on the app.

Next, click on the ‘Continue’ button.

Now it is time to file out your personal profile. Fill out your date of birth and gender. As for your name, and email address, the Songa app pulls them from your Facebook profile.
