One of the leading GMS providers in the country, Africell, last Friday, presented cash prize of NLe75, 000 to three lucky winners of their ongoing ‘win kopo’ promotion. The three lucky winners received NLe25, 000 each.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony at the Wilberforce Village Head Office, Assistant Communications Manager, Adbul Aziz Kamara, stated that the promotion has daily, weekly and monthly draws, noting that points are calculated from every recharge done by a subscribers.
He stated that the more a subscriber recharges, the more chances they have in the daily electronic draw.
He explained that when a subscriber recharges he or she will receive a questioner SMS from Africell and that they can participate by answering the question or dial *4888# or send start to 4888 for only Nle80 cents daily,
He said the promotion has a weekly draw of NLe5, 000, monthly of NLe25, 000, and a grand prize of NLe250, 000 at the end of the promotion.
Speaking after receiving the cheque of NLe25, 000, one of the winners Saliue Koroma, who identified himself as a traffic warden, said he couldn’t believe when he first received the call from Africell that he had won such money.
“Even when I told my friends that I have won from the Africell ‘win kopo promotion they didn’t believe me. They told me the call was faked and it comes from 419ers but this is reality,” he said.
