MTN May Have Sacked Some Of It's Ambassadors Because Of The Underlined Reasons..

There was a big buzz on Thursday when top telecommunications company MTN announced that he would be retaining the services of some artistes as brand ambassadors, while disengaging some for the year 2016/2017. 





The big names that had their contracts suspended include MAVIN’s big boss, Don Jazzy, his First Lady, Tiwa Savage and Omo Baba Olowo, Davido.

Though the company declined giving any reason why some were sacked while others were retained, industry watchers and Potpourri in particular believes their decision might have been influenced by scandals some artistes got themselves embroiled in the past months.
-
For Tiwa Savage, her getting axed may not be unconnected with the crashed marriage and infidelity involving her and ex husband, Tee Billz. Though Tiwa eventually warmed her way into the hearts of her fans by proving to be an angel in that union but it appears MTN didn’t find it amusing. -
Davido was never looking like he would be a pricy item this year, not after the brouhaha with his Baby mama, Sofia Momodu, and the resultant face-off with the uncle, Ovation magazine publisher, Dele Momodu. The Dubai child trafficking allegation didn’t help matters either – At least, MTN could have thought so too.
_
On Don Jazzy’s part, his spat with Olamide at the Headies might have been bigger than we thought. Though it was a beef started by Olamide, but Don Jazzy’s conduct after the showdown could have embarassed the Y’ello people.

However, MTN’s General Manager, Consumer Marketing, Richard Iweanoge explained why they are keeping past winners of their Project Fame reality music TV show, which include Inyanya, Chidinma and Praiz, saying  “MTN is particularly proud of these musicians because we not only gave them the platform to express their talent through Project FAME, we have consistently supported them over the years by making them our ambassadors. We are proud to have been able to contribute to some of Nigeria’s biggest music acts.” 

Beyond the Project Fame alumni, Iweanoge also said that in order to nurture other artistes so that they too could attain greater heights, MTN would still retain the services of some of its newly-signed brand ambassadors like Falz, Skales and Tekno who are the faces of its youth segment proposition – MTN Pulse. He added that there will be a renewed focus on building MTN’s digital platforms.

Nice move MTN! Whether una gree or not we know it has to do with d scandals. About time rich & famous Nigerians know that their actions could have negative consequences. Like that swimmer that misbehaved in Rio.

Kzy Brown said...

Very typical of corporate brands... They don't want their ambassadors to be associated with any negative publicity... It's like that with global brands... It's a good thing it has been adopted here, so that celebrities can check their lifestyles as they also role models to upcoming youths... especially Davido, insulting his Father's mate

As for Don, he's scandal free na, was it that play play fight with Olamide that caused it

Don jazzy if you want the endorsement koman take it.

Shyla said...

Looking at the ones they kept, they are controversial free and easier to manage. Others have plenty baggage following them. Seems most of them forgot they were ambassadors.

Sorry to those axed.

sisi eko said...

Of course, their personal lives good or bad will affect their ambassadorial positions. It ain't rocket science. Although the companies won't admit it.

Congrats to the new ambassadors

Oge Nsimah said...

One of their corel value is integrity. .. trading with those individuals contradict their corel value.to me is a guienue reason.so our celebrity should watch their backs and know that they are ambassadors to most gaint companies, they can't be eaten free money that we work hard for,and at the same time getaway with some stupid behaviour they display on daily bases.

Dear Anon 18:08,
He's your husband, the day you got married you accepted him flaws and all. The possibility that he has a child should be discussed openly,let him know you support him but you need him to be totally honest and open with you. ild like to believe it was before you guys got married,if it wasn't still talk to him,confront him,its your future at stake. I wish you luck.

@ anno 18'22
Thank you
Please next time. Comment with your ID

sisi eko said...

Anonymous 18:08. If the message you stumbled on clearly indicates that he has another child outside your marriage, then u may proceed to query him. But if it isn't a clear msg and u are just assuming, or u decoded wrongly, please relax and investigate well before u cause a friction in ur home o. Just saying.

sisi eko said...

My shan-tellyyyyyy baby, I sight u boo. Trust u enjoyed yourself to the max. Lol.

Whirlwind, you know this. That small thing with Olamide just come spoil market for Jazzy. That is why it's always good to think twice before speaking in public or social media. As it may be too late to retract. Esp if u are a celebrity.

As for Tiwa, errrr her own matter was super heavy. Davido na silly boy. Lol

Anonymous said...

It's a new baby that was born today.

Olaide Davies said...

Iyanz is cool.

Olaide Davies said...

It shall be well with you madam, please relax and let God guide you on the way forward. Ask him gently and accept the inevitable. May God comfort you.

Yes as an ambassador u must conduct yourself in a good way. Kudos to mtn. Glo show take note. We need role models to occupy those sports not people like olamide using Vulga languages
