Swangz Avenue artiste Azawi was the headlining act as Airtel Africa was launching a new brand campaign focused on building a deeper emotional connection with Africa’s youth.
Azawi’s ballads were so toxic that everyone at the launch abandoned their seats to groove to the music and the singer not only performed for the guests but danced with everyone who was interested.
Among the songs she did include her newly released jam 10 over 10, Bamutute and Majje among others.
The campaign includes a new strapline for Airtel Africa: ‘Reason to Imagine’. It is driven by the insight that in Africa, imagination is the only qualification that matters and showcases Airtel’s role in harnessing this potential by delivering relevant solutions to consumers that enhance digital and financial inclusion.
The ‘Reason to Imagine’ campaign highlights the company’s status as an enabler of young people’s dreams and ambitions, whatever these might be. To this end, the campaign seeks to celebrate the energy, creativity, and innovation of Africa’s young people.
“It’s a well understood fact that youth are central to achieving Uganda’s potential. About 53% of Uganda’s population is under the age of 30 – and empowering this new generation is transformative for the future of this country and the region. The Uganda Needs More of You campaign revealed the potential of young Ugandans who are harnessing the power of technology to transform their lives and their communities,” said Airtel Uganda’s Managing Director, manoj murali.
The current title sponsorship of The Voice Africa is an example of how Airtel Africa is giving the youth a reason to imagine by partnering with The Voice to bring the show to the continent. The Voice Africa showcases exceptional African musical talent in a show that also features a high-profile panel of coaches and TV hosts. One of the 100 selected talents will eventually be crowned ‘The Voice Africa’ in a live show that is currently airing on free to air TV stations across the continent and Airtel TV. This is one of the initiatives that Airtel Africa has invested in to promote youthful talents and expertise in education, sports, and the innovation sectors.
