Whitemoney unveiled as GOtv brand ambassador
Multichoice Nigeria has unveiled BBNaija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ season 6 winner, Hazel Oyeze Onouduenyi, popularly referred to as Whitemoney, as its latest brand ambassador for GOtv Nigeria.
The announcement was made yesterday at a signing ceremony held in the MultiChoice office, Lagos.
Chief Executive Officer, MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, stated that the choice of Onouduenyi as the brand ambassador was in recognition of his tenacity and drive, which endeared him to many.
“Having Whitemoney join the family is very significant. We saw a lot of votes from subscribers and it was clear that they all loved him as is evident with his huge fan base. We have had a lot of ambassadors in the past- Daddy Showkey, the past Big Brother winner, Laycon – who have represented the brand well and now Whitemoney, who will be the first GOtv ambassador with his own reality TV show,” Ugbe said.
He also noted that his signing is coming on the 10th anniversary of the brand and the launch of the latest package, GOtv Supa.
Executive Head, Content and West Africa Channels, MultiChoice Nigeria, Busola Tejumola, speaking on the upcoming reality show said: “Whitemoney has a story to tell and our platform is the best place to tell that story. We can’t wait for Nigerians to watch him on their screens. We are also excited to have him on board and we look forward to a mutually rewarding experience.”
On his part, the elated ambassador thanked the company for the recognition and opportunity to showcase his talent to a wider audience.
“I entered the Big Brother Naija house on merit, with no connection. This is a big deal for me, coming from a background where I was written off and only recognised for my looks.
“Being the first GOtv ambassador is a big win not just for the brand but also for my fan base. They get to see the real me and all the plans I have going forward. I am grateful to God, MultiChoice Nigeria and proud to be a GOtv Ambassador,” he said.
