Last week it become official that Wizkid had dumped telecomms company MTN for another Globacom, in a deal that is reported to be worth a N100 Million Naira.
Well, according to a recently released statement by Wizkid’s manager, Sunday Are, we are made to understand that it is actually more than the money.
In the statement, Wizkid said that Globacom is a brand he had admired for a very long time considering its strong presence and its very massive influence 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”
