Ugandan rapper Daniel Kigozi also known as Navio does not run out of luck. The hunky rapper, known for his uptown style, look and music recently landed a juicy deal with MTN Uganda. As of today, if you meet Mr Kigozi, you can officially refer to him as ‘Mr Ambassador’ as he is the newest official face of the MTN Smart Series brand.
The deal will see him promote a series of MTN branded, affordable smart phones flagged under the ‘Smart Series’ campaign.
According to Mapula Bodibe, MTN’s Chief Marketing Officer, Navio was given the deal because he has a big influence on young people in Uganda, and they are the target for the product.
“He will be marketing the ‘MTN Smart Mini phones which the company is currently promoting,” a media statement from MTN stated.
Singers Lillian Mbabazi, Pallaso and Ronald Mayinja have also been ambassadors of the brand and renewed their contracts earlier this year. Navio is the latest inclusion to the ambassadorial team.
