Be that as it may, the new MTN Portability Advert including Saka is creating a furor and keeping tongues swaying in no little measure. The MTN TV advertisement begins with Saka wearing green customary clothing – which most likely stands for Etisalat, just to change into a splendid yellow clothing – MTN, as he leads a music band singing: “I don port o, I don port go MTN. I don upgrade to MTN…”

The inquiry on numerous lips about Saka change from Etisalat to MTN is: didn’t Saka have an exclusive contract with Etisalat or he was being paid per advert? Sources have uncovered that Saka was never a full brand ambassador (a Big oversight on Etisalat’s part) and that he got a mouth-watering contract of N20million from MTN for the swap.

Sources additionally revealed that Etisalat is coming out with a blast in light of the MTN port advert. Watch out for other port adverts as well. Airtel stunningly subbed MTN in their porting advert, they utilized a yellow figure 3.

ETISALAT is believed to be irate by MTN’s advert and they’ve been asking for briefs from main advert agencies like X3M to stage a counter promotion.
