Globacom, the African communications giant and sponsor of the annual Glo-CAF Awards, has announced it is extending all-expense-paid VIP invitations to a number of prepaid customers on the Glo Mobile Ghana network to participate in the 2013 edition of the prestigious Glo-CAF Awards Gala event set for Lagos, Nigeria on January 9.
Every prepaid subscriber on the Glo network is technically qualified to participate in the annual Glo-CAF African Player-of-the-Year Awards Gala, but in order to be selected as a special guest to enjoy Globacom’s all-expense-paid hospitality at the plush ceremony in Lagos, the Glo subscriber must recharge a minimum of GHc20.00 between 1st October and 31st December, 2013.
Globacom has partnered the Confederation of African Football (CAF) in organizing the prestigious Glo-CAF Awards - Africa’s biggest platform for honouring excellence and distinction in the game of football - for the past nine years.
The venue for Glo-CAF Awards gala rotates from one African city to the other but Ghana was privileged to host the ceremony for three consecutive years since 2010. This year’s edition has been slated for Lagos, Nigeria and would attract the crème de la crème of the continent’s football fraternity including legendary and star players, managers, coaches, administrators and journalists.
"As a strong African brand, Glo is simply delighted about this exciting opportunity to bring our cherished customers face-to-face with the headliners and legends of Africa’s most popular sport," Mr. Akeem Kazeem, Head of Business at Glo Mobile Ghana told journalists in an interview.
"Although this is a promotion designed to reward and excite our customers as we approach the end of the year, every Ghanaians is welcome to share in the fun. Those of you who are not yet on the Glo network but who wish to be part of the usual excitement at the awards gala and enjoy the thrills of an all-expense-paid trip to Lagos should simply port their numbers to Glo or get a new Glo SIM and start talking,” Mr. Kazeem said.
