Nigeria’s next generation network, Globacom, has signed on fast-rising media entrepreneur, Adebola Williams, as a brand ambassador of the telecommunications company.
Williams, co-founder of RED Media, is among the new set of brand ambassadors signed on by Globacom. He has immediately commenced work by taking part in a television commercial, which has started airing globally through the CNN, and across the nation.
The engagement of Williams signifies a new resolve of the company to widen its scope to include younger, hard working Nigerians whose exploits in entrepreneurship and allied endeavour are providing inspiration for the coming generation.
It was learnt that the company intends to demonstrate to Nigerian youths that without being in sports and entertainment, they can still be rewarded and celebrated as long as they show diligence in their chosen areas of endeavour, especially, entrepreneurship.
Williams, co-owner of highly successful brands, including Red Media Africa, The Future Awards Africa and YNaija.com, amongst others, played a significant role in the rebranding of President Mohammadu Buhari. He was one of the brains behind some of the President’s youth-oriented campaign events.
Williams who recently became an Obama Mandela Washington Fellow is an Alumnus of the London School of Journalism, London School of Marketing and School of Media and Communications of the Pan African University.
