2 Face, IK, Akpororo, others now Airtel brand ambassadors




Five young, talented and enterprising Nigerians have been unveiled by Airtel Nigeria as its brand ambassadors. The young Nigerians, who have made a mark in their chosen fields, are Innocent Ujah Idibia popularly called 2Face Idibia, Azubuike Chibuzo Nelson with the stage name Phyno, Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie fondly Patoramking, Jephthah Bowoto alias Akpororo, a comedian and Ik Osakioduwa.

Introducing the new brand ambassadors at a colourful ceremony in Lagos last week, Chief Executive Officer of Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, disclosed that the ambassadors were carefully picked for a number of reasons, which included their values, character and positive image.

He further said that these qualities were what his company stood for and were inherent in the brand. This, to him, was why the ambassadors, who were dubbed smart icons, best suited the brands as they complemented each other.

In introducing each of the smart icons to the house on the night, Ogunsanya painted a picture why each of them was outstanding, highlighting past efforts that commended and the awards they have won. He thanked them for joining the Airtel family and hoped that they would continue to be shining lights to many young Nigerians so that young Nigerians would aspire to be icons like them.

Before the introduction of these smart icons, each of them took time out to entertain guests, who applauded them, singing and dancing to the hit songs of the artistes. There was plenty of laughter, as well to their jokes on offer
