The Globacom Business Director, Globacom, West 1, Mr. lawrence Okpako, said the company chose to partner with Gbenga Adeyinka because Laffmatazz has become a big brand that has attracted the interest of a big brand like Globacom.
“The Easter season is meant to share love as epitomised by Jesus Christ who died for all mankind. It is in the spirit of this love that Globacom chose to reward its subscribers by entertaining them. It is also our company’s way of partnering with giants in the comedy industry and encouraging upcoming artistes to externalise the talents that God has given them,” he said.
