MTN explains why they dropped Wizkid, Sean Tizzle & Timaya as ambassdors

A fan asked on Twitter and the telecoms giant replied. See their full explanation in a statement they released after the cut...

“Although there is a finite number of brand ambassadors we can have at any point in time, Nigerian artistes can continue to monetise their intellectual works through our distribution channels such as the Caller Tunez and Music Plus platforms. As was originally conceptualised, the ambassador ship will continually evolve to accommodate new talents and cater for diverse segments.
This year, we are using a segmented approach and there will be ambassadors for each segment of our market. Using this criteria, new artistes like Cobhams Asuquo will be coming on board the MTN Ambassadorial family. In May 2015, stars including Davido, Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Dr. Sid, Sound Sultan, Iyanya, Chidinma, BankyW, KCee as well as Saka, Osuofia, Mama Geeand others all renewed their contracts with MTN.
The list of those who won’t be staying with MTN contains Nigerian pop stars like Wizkid, Sean Tizzle, and Timaya". “The list of those who won’t be staying with MTN contains Nigerian pop stars like Wizkid, Sean Tizzle, and Timaya.”

Bruce Almighty said...

In other words, this is simple business "You haven't been popping and we have talents with growing fan base". In those areas MTN said they will monitize their works, won't there be commission too for MTN as the platform? lol

Don't mess with Free Will

Explanation doesn't make sense to me. More like listing the artists that have been dropped and the ones who are still with MTN.
