P-SQUARE SEALS $2M GLOBACOM ENDORSEMENT DEAL.
If you can remember, we announced the intention of one of Nigeria's foremost telecommunication companies, Globacom, to sign R&B and African Hip-Hop duo, P-Square, as Brand Ambassadors some weeks ago. We are glad to let you know that the deal has been signed, sealed and delivered. Paul and Peter Okoye were signed as the latest Glo Ambassadors at a colourful ceremony last Tuesday at the Mike Adenuga Towers in Lagos, Nigeria. According to Golobacom's Group Chief Operating Officer, Mr Mohammed Jameel-
'P-Square remains a well focused and popular music group and the youths of this country and the continent find the group worthy of emulation. The choice of P-Square to join our brand ambassadors was therefore not misplaced. We have carefully selected our crop of brand ambassadors and we believe they represent the very best in their chosen professions. We have been actively projecting enterprising Nigerians who have excelled in their fields of endeavour. We are of the firm belief that their faces would help fire the aspirations and dreams of many youths to reach for their goals and rule their world.'
P-Square described the endorsement as a welcome recognition of the group's contribution to the entertainment industry in Nigeria and Africa. The duo also believes that their role as Globacom Ambassadors will inspire them to achieve more as artists. Our sources say the P-Square-Globacom deal is worth $2 Million Dollars. Peter and Paul Okoye are from Ifite Dunu, Anambra State, Nigeria. Their best selling album 'Game Over' [ 2005 ] has sold 8 million copies worldwide. P-Square won the Video of The Year @ the 2008 Channel O Music Awards with the video of their hit track, 'Do Me'. RV felicitates with P-Square on their mouthwatering deal with Globacom.
