Who really Ported our Saka ? The MTN versus ETISALAT Advert

MTN versus Etisalat

The Saka manace  - "Who really ported our Saka". According to reports, the creator of  the popular Saka character in telecom television commercials is with the Orange Academy in Lagos. He wrote about Saka on MTN Vs ETISALAT which many believed Saka betrayed Etisalat or was offered a huge sum of money from MTN.

He wrote...
"First, Saka was not a celebrity used for etisalat. Rather, he was a character we at Centrespread designed for an ad campaign that has come to take on a life of its own. 
"Secondly, we must also quickly correct the impression that the ‘funny’ man was looking for money, hence porting to MTN".
He was not signed on a contract. He was paid like any other 3-month model arrangement. He was not paid the proverbial gbem. For the brand then, it was more of a tactical usage.
