MTN Nigeria, which is multi-national telecommunications group offering voice and data communications products and services to individuals and businesses barely uses well-known showbiz personalities when doing television commercials, wondering why? Globacom has taken all the best celebrities in its industry as brand ambassadors.


However, it seems like MTN has been taking lessons from Globacom and has now chosen to use more reputable faces for their adverts.


Firstly, gifted actress/television personality, Iyabo Lawani was used as the face for MTN’s promotion costing N1 Billion and is now legitimately called MTN’s brand ambassador. Iyabo Lawani is definitely not new to both Nollywood movies and television. She shot into fame when she appeared in the movie Goodbye Tomorrow, followed by many others, after which she went on to present the brilliant TV show, Maggi Good Food Moments.


Not only that, but MTN has also got big plans to use the one and only, Patience Ozokwor aka ‘Mama G’ and top Nollywood’s comic actor, Nkem Owoh, popularly known for his fantastic acting character in Osuofia In London.


With this recent change, it seems like MTN is finally stepping up their game by signing on Nollywood stars as representatives.
