Commercial Director-Core Group Africa Matthew Grose described the partnership between Etisalat and Apple as a historic one in Nigeria as well as Africa. According to Grose: ‘Apple is extremely selective about whom it partners with for such high profile smart devices, and we are extremely glad to partner with Etisalat Nigeria on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus … As a premium mobile brand, our aim was to partner with a premium telecommunications operator to ensure that our customers get the very best and we have achieved that with Etisalat.’
At the event, 6 lucky individuals each won a brand new iPhone 6 courtesy of Etisalat. The event was also well attended by celebrities from the worlds of fashion, film, music, comedy, and photography.
