For a secular artiste, endorsement from corporate bodies is a big advantage. The cash involved is a symbol of stability and having arrived. So, when the telecom companies courted artistes branding them as ambassadors, it was a welcomed development sought by both big and small artistes. MTN, Globacom, Etisalat and Airtel have all unveiled artistes as their ambassadors while existing ones have been renewed this year. Airtel endorsed five artistes so far in 2015 and they are 2face Idibia, Phyno, Patoranking as well as fast rising comedian Akpororo and Big Brother Africa (BBA) host, IK Osakioduwa. MTN also renewed its contracts with its brand ambassadors, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy and Iyanya. Olamide’s deal was also renewed with Etisalat with the likes of Seyi Shay coming on board. Burna Boy, Omawumi, MI, Bez, Flavour also had their endorsements renewed with Globacom.
