Three Nigerian star musical artists, Ahmed Ololade, a.k.a Asake; Oluwatobiloba Anidugbe Daniel popularly known as Kizz Daniel and Chike Ezekpeazu simply called Chike, have joined the Globacom family as ambassadors.
The trio were unveiled at a colorful ceremony on Friday at the Mike Adenuga Towers, Victoria Island, Lagos head office of the telecommunications giant where Glo explained that it had appointed them because they are “role models who have gone through the grind to stand on the highest pedestal of their dreams”.
Asake is a graduate of Theatre Arts from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State while Kizz Daniel obtained a degree in Water Engineering from the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State. Chike on his part is a Computer Engineering graduate of Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State.
Globacom said it was celebrating its 20 years of operations with the appointment of the new ambassadors “to project the power of youth and enterprise and how much they can achieve with the right focus, passion, and dedication that can come from seeing others who have succeeded. This is very much part of our tradition as we believe the strength of a nation lies in the ability and potentials of its youth”.
According to the company, “the engagement of these three stars as ambassadors “is meant to project the best of Nigerians as models for younger people who are tirelessly aspiring to succeed. This is more important in an era where positive heroes and mentors are scarce and hard to come by. The intention is not just to promote the growth of music, Nollywood, and sports where we have been very prominent, but also to encourage our teeming youths to aspire toward realizing their dreams by looking up to these ambassadors as mentors”.
The telecommunications company has carved a niche for itself not only as the biggest corporate supporter of arts and entertainment in Nigeria but has been at the forefront of enlisting talented and enterprising Nigerian youth as ambassadors.
Globacom felicitated the trio while encouraging youths to fulfill their dreams by emulating these three stars who were tenacious until they succeeded, adding, this “is our way of inspiring a whole generation of young people with vision who can do better and achieve more without losing hope along the way, even when confronted with challenges”.
The company promised to continue to promote the entertainment sector as it held great prospects to promote Nigeria on the global pedestal while transforming the lives of diligent and talented youths.
The new ambassadors thanked the Chairman of Globacom, Dr Mike Adenuga Jr., for the honour done to them promising to represent the Glo brand by always projecting the ideals of the company.
