Imagine waking up to the sum of One million naira in your bank account to chase your budding dream and all you had to do was showcase your creativity or get yourself a new Tecno Spark 2 smartphone. Isn’t that just awesome? This was the case for four individuals who were gifted the sum of One million naira each during the second edition of the Tecno Light Up Your Dream campaign.
The grand finale which took place at TECNO’s Lagos headquarters on July 31st 2018 had a lot of thrilling and emotional moments for everyone who participated.
From the inception of the campaign, a lot of entries were received but only a few got the eyes of the judges, out of which 20 individuals were selected to pitch their ideas, with the chance of 2 individuals going home with one million naira each. While two more winners were to be chosen after a raffle draw to win One Million Naira each.
The event was attended by Tecno executives and the contestants were assessed by celebrity judges Noble Igwe; a renowned blogger and Chief Executive Officer of 360 group and Bisola Aiyeola, first runner up of Big Brother Naija 2017 and an award-winning actor, presenter, singer and MC.
