TECNO Rewards 4 Entrepreneurs With N1 Million Cash



TECNO Mobile’s 2018 light up your dream campaign came to a remarkable end as four budding fans and entrepreneurs each went home N1million richer to help achieve their dreams.

After thousands of entries and weeks of tedious work, 20 participants were selected to make a live pitch before fans, staff, executives, guests and judges, Actress Bisola Aiyeola of Big Brother fame and celebrity blogger Noble Igwe at a glamorous event which took place at the TECNO headquarters in Lagos, where the grand prize winners Jeremiah Okoh and Henry Emeka Nnamani went home smiling with N1 million and a brand new TECNO SPARK 2 each.

The contestants who came 3rd – 10th went home with brand new TECNO SPARK 2 smartphones, while those in 11th to 20thposition went home with brand new rechargeable fans.

It was an emotional moment for one of the grand prize winners; Jeremiah Okoh, a ginger Agropreneur from Kaduna, when he spoke on how grateful he is to God and TECNO as tears of joy trickled down his eyes “standing here and holding this cheque is a dream on its own. I cannot believe this.”

Speaking on how he participated he said “my friend drew my attention to this activity, I decided to give it a shot and see me today, I really cannot believe this is me holding a 1 million Naira cheque in my hands” 

Also speaking at the event, PR and strategic partnership manager TECNO Nigeria, Mr. Jesse Oguntimehin said

You  already know that at TECNO, giving is part of our DNA. Nigeria is filled with a lot of talented people that do not have the opportunity to bring that dream to the fore due to several reasons which of course includes finance. So, we are doing our bit by providing the finance to make things easier for them and we are very glad to get these young dreamers closer to their dream.”

The search for the millionaires began on the 13th of June 2018, after the launch of TECNO’s latest smartphone from the Spark stable – TECNO SPARK 2, a device built to capture impressive bright and clear pictures, gave an opportunity to everyone with a dream to win the sum of 1 million naira by just creatively showcasing their special talent or life goals.

Interested participants were simply asked to upload a video, image or text of their dream, and demonstrate how they will celebrate if they eventually win the 1 million Naira.

After they make the submissions on their social media platforms with the hashtag #LightUpYourDream2018 and tag TECNO Mobile with its different social media handles, they get their friends to like and share to support them.

And, interested participants who were probably too shy to do something creative, were also given the opportunity to win by simply walking into any designated TECNO retail store to purchase the new TECNO Spark 2 as a raffle ticket will be given to them- that raffle automatically gave them the opportunity to win the money also.

The Light Up Your Dream competition was started last year after the launch of the first TECNO Spark edition, and is seemingly becoming an annual event.

So, fans and customers should probably keep their fingers crossed and brush up on their creative juice for next year’s edition.
