Nokia doles out cash prizes in Danfo Reloaded competition

By Kokumo Goodie, Lagos, Nigeria

Two players, Samuel Afolabi and Etejere Edafeoghene, have emerged as winners of the second draw of Nokia’s Danfo Reloaded Competition, a local game available on the Nokia store. The duo was presented with a sum of N100,000.00 each as reward for being the highest scorers for the week.

Speaking at the prize presentation, which took place at Nokia office today, Teemu Kijaarvi, Head, Developer Experience at Nokia West Africa, said that Danfo Reloaded competition is another way Nokia is reaching out to its loyal subscribers. “At Nokia, our customers are at the heart of everything we do, this is why we will always look for ways to reward their loyalty to the brand and put smiles on their faces.”

One of the winners, Etejere Edafeoghene expressed joy at the gesture. He recounted that he was skeptical about the authenticity of his winning when he got a call informing him that he had been chosen as one of the highest scorers for the week. “I couldn’t believe it when I was told that I had emerged as one the top scorers for the week. I really do not believe in promos. I just tried my luck and here I am, a winner of N100,000.00” He thanked Nokia for the kind gesture and urged Nigerian youths to take advantage of the opportunity.

Explaining the mechanics of the Nokia Danfo Reloaded Game, Olajide Adeyemi, Retail Customer Marketing Manager at Nokia West Africa, said that the Danfo Reloaded is a locally developed mobile phone game that can be played on the Nokia Asha 200, 201, 303 or 302 phones. “Danfo is a common slang for commercial buses in Lagos. In the game Danfo Reloaded, the player plays as a “Danfo driver”, earns money as he proceeds and at the end of one week, the players with the two highest scores win N100,000.00 from Nokia.

The competition will run for 5 weeks. Players are to upload their scores on the Facebook page for their scores to count. For further information and any other updates about the ‘Danfo Reloaded” competition, customers can visit the Nokia Facebook page.
