Saka sings in the MTN Nigeria MNP advert
HumanIPO reported last month MTN Nigeria had released a television advert which featured popular actor and former Etisalat ambassador, Hafiz Oyetoro (known as Saka), promoting their network.
The video from the advert, found in the above link, went viral and reports emerged Etisalat had not treated the actor well, which was why he left.
But speaking to HumanIPO Doubrapade Koroye, Etisalat’s value added services specialist, said he did not believe Saka got a better contract from MTN.
“How much do you think he earned with us that made people think that. Those stories are myths,” he said.
According to him, the actor exercised his right to decide his future.
“Saka chose to go his own way just like many people. People choose their direction. He was not our slave. You know he wasn’t bound. So we wish him the best,” he said.
When asked whether Etisalat will consider porting him back, he said the company is not eliminating any possibility in the nearest future.
He said: “Who knows, who knows tomorrow?”
