AMVCA winner and rising Nollywood star Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama added another feather to her cap recently as Multichoice Nigeria unveiled her as the latest brand ambassador of its DStv Explora 2.

The Nollywood actress will play the lead roles in soon to be released DStv Explora 2 campaign materials which include TV, Out-of-home, digital, radio and press adverts. As ambassador, Somkele will further promote the exciting features of the all new, sleek and cool decoder such as the BoxOffice and Catch Up services.

“Somkele is a great fit for the brand”, said John Ugbe, Managing Director, MultiChoice Nigeria. “She is a talented actress and we have watched her career take a tremendous leap! Her uniqueness and creativity as an actress coupled with her passion for excellence exemplifies the essence of the latest model of our DStv Explora.”

At this year’s Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) Somkele went home with the Trailblazer award for her peerless acts in movies like 93 Days. The Nigerian born actress came into spotlight as a supporting actress on NdaniTV’s hit web series Gidi Up, where she played the role of Yvonne, the fashion designer. However, it was not until 2016 that her roles in 93 Days, The Wedding Party and, The Arbitration made her a name to be reckoned with as she became the first female international rising star at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
