14 years old Nigerian Boy Becomes CEO of MTN NIGERIA



If you could be the CEO of the number one ICT company in Nigeria for a day, what would you do? What extent would you be willing to go for that opportunity? Hold on to your answer!

For the first time, a child occupied the seat of the prestigious MTN Nigeria CEO for 24 hours! The winner of the Lagos State Private Schools Spelling Bee sponsored by MTN Nigeria, Adeola Ademuwa Ifeoluwa, arrived at the company’s headquarters in a chauffeur-driven car as his parents beamed beside him. The 14-year-old student of Chrisfield College, Ikorodu, was full of excitement when the company’s CEO, Ferdi Moolman, handed over to him on the morning of Thursday, December 5, 2019. He received his employment letter and ID card after a warm welcome from the Chief Executive Officer, Ferdi Moolman. A hilarious moment occurred when Adeola found out he had to call the CEO by his first name.

PS: The company has a first name policy that applies to all its staff. The Kid-CEO spent the day hard at work – conducting interviews, taking photos with dignitaries and discussing his plans for the future.

Tobechukwu Okigbo, Chief Corporate Relations Officer, MTN Nigeria; Mrs Sherifat Folashade Jaji, Secretary to Lagos State Government and representative of the governor; Adeoluwa Ademuwa Ifeoluwa, First MTN Nigeria Kid-CEO and winner, 2019 mPulse Lagos State Private School Spelling Bee; Mohammed Rufai, Chief Technical Officer, MTN Nigeria, and Sean Cryan, Country Manager, Ericsson Nigeria, at the MTN 5G Demo showcase in Lagos on Thursday, December 5, 2019

He acted as the CEO on a day MTN was holding the 5G demonstration in Lagos and Ifeoluwa was on hand to receive dignitaries at the event. By the end of the day, he had learned a lot about the company. He had learnt how it works, and all the integral parts of the ICT firm. He started out shaky at first, but later, he was confidently conducting interviews and explaining why he was the CEO for the day. In case you missed the memo, apart from bragging rights that came with winning, he received a cash prize, books, a branded CEO bag and much more.

Now, back to the question. What would you do if you had the opportunity to be the CEO of MTN Nigeria for a day? This kid and hundreds of others, who gave their all, showed us that we could do absolutely anything! So, who says you can’t be? The Spelling Bee was enabled by MTN mPulse, an exciting proposition from MTN created to equip students between the ages of 9 and 15 years with the resources they need to maximize their potential. The service offers kids (primary and secondary school students) an array of premium services and features such as free airtime on their birthday, free data for WhatsApp, practice questions for Common Entrance, WAEC, JSSCE and JAMB, Videos and lots of games.

Legendary singer, Kathy Brown diagnosed with stage four lung cancer



Legendary house music singer, Kathy Brown has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer with the disease spreading to her brain.

The American singer, 63, known for songs including Turn Me Out (Turn to Sugar) and Strings of Life (Stronger on My Own) was diagnosed late last year after being admitted to ICU in her hometown of Charleston, South Carolina.

Doctors performed surgery to try and reduce swelling in Brown’s brain – with the star currently undergoing a course of radiotherapy and immunotherapy.

Kathy’s daughter Chanta Joyner has set up a GoFundMe to fund medical expenses and monthly bills for the family.

Chanta wrote: ‘As the news is only just sinking in we are already facing the harsh reality of what this means for my mother – not only the physical and medical challenges but also the many financial ones.

‘Like most artists who have devoted their careers to dance music, without being able to perform LIVE there’s little to no chance of earning an income. My mother has poured her heart and soul onto stages and dance floors all over the world for more than thirty years, and now she needs your love and support more than ever.

‘My siblings and I are going to do everything we can to take care of her, but the costs we are facing with medical expenses and monthly bills are overwhelming.

‘My mom deserves the best care and comfort that money can buy. I know that she has thousands of fans all over the world who adore her voice and her beautiful spirit.

‘Please consider contributing to assist Kathy and get her through the weeks and months ahead. The London-based record label ‘Revival’ that she has recently been working with has offered to match contributions up to $10,000.

‘Let’s show my mom that the dance music community really is an extended family who keep each other lifted not only in the good times but the hard times too. Thank you for the love, support and many messages that you have been posting and sending to Kathy. I promise you that she sees every single one, and they mean so very much to her.

Brown originally found fame as the chart-topping lead singer of the group Praxis before having US dance hits on her own.

In 1999 she climbed to #4 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with Joy and in 2004 was the credited lead vocalist on the British act Soul Central’s Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own), a track that samples Rhythm Is Rhythm’s 1989 House classic.

Over the years she featured on dozens of house and club singles.
