Alicia Keys named new Global Creative Director for Blackberry

The multiple-award winning singer was unveiled today as the new global creative director of Blackberry in New York.
"She believes in the product and technology," BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins said in a statement. "We are excited she will be bringing to us her enormous capabilities, as well as a vast network of relationships in the entertainment, social media and business communities, to help shape our brand and grow our business."
Alicia, who joined the CEO on stage, said:
"As global creative director, my goal is to inspire creativity with this platform, and I'm so excited to jump right in. I want to bridge the gap between the work phone and the play phone," she noted.

I saw this and almost raised some eyebrows until I saw this line... "Her vast network of relationships in the entertainment, social media and business communities, to help shape our brand and grow our business." That sounds logical. Congrats gurl.

Work and Personal feature of BB10 Awesome.

Sorry but our artist are not sophisticated enough to be creative director/brand image based on their myopic outlook.

That's what happens when you have self representation instead of retaining professionals to manager their careers.

Rubbish talk!! Do all those companies you mentioned design or manufacture anything that needs a celebrity creative input? Wetin concern dangote with pakurumo or alingo? The best they can be is what they are already, ie globe or brand ambassadors! Oshe!!!!!

@Anonymous 10:30/10:31; Knowing you are the same person I wanna ask you something, Why are you making me this important to you? Mr/Mrs Busy tell me something, what have you used your supposedly busy time to do that's so special? You invented a phone that can download food? Or you found a cure for AIDS?
FYI, it takes only a minute from the time of getting a post notification to posting a comment, so that's been Jobless right? You are the one who needs a job, I have one already. Who are you calling a boy by the way? STFU!!

Nigeria should face the fact we are a small percentage of the overall smartphone technology market. Stop deceiving ourselves

@anonymous 9, more like our celebrities aren't creative and have little or nothing to contribute to brands.
