Several Nollywood stars recently gathered at Mike Adenuga Towers, headquarters of Globacom, to witness the launch of the network’s novel tariff plan, New Infinito.

Rita Dominic, Ini Edo, Monalisa Chinda, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha and Uche Jombo, all Glo ambassadors, were on hand to identify with the package which charges subscribers only 25 kobo per second for calls made to any network in Nigeria. The new plan is devoid of any rental payments, hidden charges, and conditions.

It was not an entirely Nollywood gathering as the guests at the event included songstress Ego and Stereoman Ekwe.

Speaking at the event, Rita Dominic said she was thrilled that New Infinito, unlike other tariff plans in the market, charges 25 kobo per second flat rate for all local calls irrespective of which network is being called or time of day or which part of the country the call is originating from.

Ini Edo, on her part, described New Infinito as the best value offer in the country’s telecom industry. She commended Glo for introducing the package which also allows subscribers to call one Special Number at only 2 kobo per second. “It is interesting to note that no daily or monthly rental is charged to enjoy this very cheap rate,” she stated.

Glo Group Chief Operating Officer, Mohamed Jameel, who launched the product explained that subscribers have an option of registering 5 Glo numbers which he can call at 18 kobo per second. Registration is also free and there is no rental charge, he added.

The other stars at the occasion, Monalisa Chinda, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha, Uche Jombo, Ego and Stereoman Ekwe expressed optimism that the product will resonate well with subscribers and said they were proud to associate with Glo.

    In as much as Nollywood startlets are actively endorsing Glo ,I hope they are not using them as placards & sensational figures in their product ads, I do hope they are actually delivering all what the package carries?Cos telecom countries in Nigeria have never had the common man @ heart… That said really loving the tranquil demeanor of MonaLisa. God bless her.

    This is one of the best pics I’ve seen of Monalisa ever…even with the akward angle she looks beatiful…I’m glad she is realising the ‘less is more’ look works best for her! At this rate, she’ll soon be a living representation of her name…Go girl!

    I’ve never understood what value all these so called ambassadors add to Glo. I mean customers make their decisions on what telecom service to use based on price and quality of service. I’m sure nobody decides to switch to Glo because D’banj and Jenifa convinced them. In England celebrities don’t endorse O2 and Orange, because they’re not lifestyle brands like Chanel and L’Oreal.

    As you can see from the earlier comments ( regarding BB service) people are solely concerned with price and quality, which makes me suspect foul play in this whole endorsement palaver: I will not say anything here but…put 2 and 2 together. #that is all.

      You’ve said it all, Globacom should give me money, if they don’t know what to do with it, these so called gl0 ambassadors are just a waste of money

    • Peperempe

      April 14, 2011 at 7:52 pm

      I think everyone commented only on Monalisa because this post initially had just the first picture with Monalisa. It’s not a yellow thing…

      Yeah, I was wondering about that, coz I love Chioma (the green outfit looks so crisp and fresh) and her hair in this pictures is fab. *ringing stylist* Anyway, love Ini’s new look too,hope she keeps it up…except for that hair!mschew

    Bella, the reason Funke Akindele’s name was not in the title of the post is? Rita Dominic isn’t even in the pics yet her name came out. Preferential treatment huh? Not cool

    Monalisa looks so grown up! So mature, and classy, thank you Jesus!
    I agree with not understanding the rationale for ‘glo ambassadors’, I don’t think any demographic would decide to subscribe to the network because any of their ambassadors said so, and it’s not because they are not opinion leaders/celebs.
    I love the new tariff, and even though my friends don’t really like Glo, I must commend them for forcing down tariffs and giving MTN (especially) a run for their money.

    @ebi… Just take it that the company is encouraging the youth and givng back to the society,somewhat. Simply put, they are spreading the wealth. This portrays, a good image of the company, creats societal love for them , reduces jealousy plus it is a form of advertisement. In the long run, it helps the company.Ask Oprah Winfrey…
