MTN Ghana has donated a two-bedroom house to Madam Rita Tetteh – the woman who played the lead role in the first Mobile Money (Momo) advert aired on television in 1999 that eventually aided the service to gain grounds in the country.
The advert crafted on the back of the earlier challenges that confronted the inception of the MTN Momo carried a strong message on the use of the service with a strong highlight on its usefulness, notwithstanding the distance barrier.
At the 2019 Momo Agents Awards at the Alisa Hotel in Accra on Friday, December 21, 2019, Madam Rita Tetteh was recognized for the impact her role in the advert has had on the success of Momo which is celebrating its 10 years anniversary this year.
She has been handed the keys to a 2-bedroom house on top of a touching citation that celebrates her for being part of the success story of Momo for the past decade.
After receiving her reward, Madam Rita Tetteh burst into tears of joy as she lauded MTN for the gesture which she described as a big surprise.
“You have made me overwhelmed with joy with what you have done for me. I first and foremost give thanks to God. I also thank Mr. Eli Hini, Majeed, and everybody at MTN. God bless you all because you have always supported me from day one,” Madam Rita Tetteh said.
At the end of the Momo Agent Awards night, 50 agents and merchants walked away with amazing goodies ranging from Samsung Television sets, Motobicyles, agent kiosks, trips to Dubai, and a brand new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe.
