LAGOS — Nigerian multinational telecommunications company, Globacom Limited, has unveiled Tobi Amusan as its newest brand ambassador.
The event took place at the Mike Adenuga Towers on Thursday in Lagos.
Amusan is the current world, commonwealth, and African champion in the 100m hurdles.
Speaking at the unveiling, Amusan expressed delight at joining the likes of Anthony Joshua and Mikel Obi, among others as a global ambassador of the telecommunications giant, promising to be a worthy ambassador.
“Globacom is a company that I’ve always admired. And I’m delighted to have this opportunity to work with Globacom,” she said.
“As we all know, Globacom has a long history of rewarding excellence and empowering people. I am happy to join a long list of stars like Anthony Joshua, Mikel Obi, Osaze Odewingie among others.
“As a global ambassador, I hope to mentor and inspire younger people to achieve their goals. I’m going to do my very best to be a good representative of the company and use that to inspire the next generation.
“However, I am grateful to the chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, for giving me this amazing opportunity. And thanks to everyone that has made it possible. And I’m also thankful to everyone that has taken the time out to attend this event.”
Speaking earlier, Lawrence Odediran, Lagos regional manager, said the company was proud of Amusan’s achievements. Amusan, he said, is an embodiment of the Nigerian spirit.
“At Globacom, we are very proud of what Tobi Amusan has achieved in her athletics career. She is an embodiment of the Nigerian spirit of resilience, hardwork and enterprise which enabled her to excel irrespective of the enormity of the challenges she encountered in her quest for success,” Odediran stated.
“As a Glo ambassador, Tobi Amusan, will represent the company and project the image of the brand across the world. She will be a constant reminder to all youths across the African continent that hardwork pays and that there is no limit to their ambitions.
“She has become a testimony to the famous saying of Malcom X that the future belongs to those who prepare for it today. She prepared very hard in the previous years and today belongs to her. Tomorrow is also waiting for other determined Nigerian and African youths who begin their preparations today.
“Today’s unveiling is, therefore, a further confirmation of Globacom’s commitment to the empowerment of Nigerians and the development of Nigerian sports. We restate our pledge to continue to support the development of the sector.”
Amusan is the first female athlete signed by the telecommunications company.
