Nigeria’s music superstar, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, popularly called Wizkid, has shed light on the reason why he entered into an endorsement deal with Nigeria’s telecommunications giant Globacom and dumped MTN.
In a statement released in Lagos by his Manager, Mr. Sunday Are, Wizkid said Globacom is a brand he had admired for a very long time considering its strong persona and its very massive impact and image in the entertainment industry in Nigeria.
“Globacom is huge in my industry and I see the evidence of the company’s commitment to improving the industry and the lives of its practitioners everywhere I turn. To be honest, it’s been a dream to have a working relationship with the Glo brand. An opportunity to turn this dream to reality came, and I took it.”
“It’s an incredible blessing to be sought after by arguably Nigeria’s two most powerful brands at the same time. My decision to go with Globacom this time is not an act of spite against MTN. I simply seized an opportunity to move from Yellow land to greener pastures. God bless.”
Tongues have been wagging Wizkid since he dumped MTN for Globacom.
