Nume Ekeghe writes that it was a life changing moment for Faruk Muhammed, a father of five, who won N5million in the ongoing 9mobile Magic Hour Promo For Faruk Muhammed, his recent ascent into the league of millionaires was met with initial disbelief. But by a stroke of fate and goodwill on the part of 9mobile, his fortunes have changed for good.
Prior to his recent win, Muhammed said he had never even seen N500,000. The father of five was recently catapulted into the realms of delight as he received his N5million cash prize at the ongoing Magic Hour Promo.
Receiving his N5 million cash prize in Abuja, Faruk Muhammed expressed delight at being singled out of the millions of subscribers who participated in the promo daily.
The excited father of five said; “I had not even seen N500,000 in my life let alone N5 million. It sounded unbelievable at first when I was told. I have always made 9mobile my network of choice any time, any day; for me, this is more than a reward.
“When this promo started I tried to load up to N100 everyday so that I could at least win something, but this prize completely blew my mind!”
After recently splashing its Lagos customers with stunning prizes in the ongoing 9mobile Magic Hour promo, a new set of winners emerged in and around Abuja, carting home fabulous prizes on Friday, March 22.
The event which held in Abuja was in continuation of the prize redemption events of the promo, organised by the most innovative and customer-friendly telecommunications company, 9mobile.
The prize redemption, which took place at the Mall Atrium, Jabi Lake Mall, Abuja, also witnessed a surprise shopping spree in which many participants, who had accompanied the promo winners to the event as friends and loved ones, went home with amazing items which they purchased from the mall free of charge courtesy of 9mobile.
Just like the Lagos edition, 9mobile customers who participated in the promo won many fantastic prizes including free airtime, smartphones and cash prizes running into millions of naira as part of the rewards given out by the telco under its customer reward scheme, Magic Hour Promo, in celebration of customers for their loyalty to the network over the past 10 years.
Speaking at the prize presentation, the Acting Managing Director of 9mobile, Stephane Beuvelet, said the Magic Hour Promo is one of the ways the telco is fulfilling its promise to make this year as fulfilling as possible for its subscribers.
“This promo was introduced by 9mobile to mark its tenth anniversary and a way to reward the loyalty of our customers. This is very much a recognition initiative from 9mobile as we want to change the lives of our customers; we created this opportunity to make an impact in their lives which you all are seeing today.
“This is very significant, and we are very happy with it. With just N100 our customers can do extraordinary things which they ordinarily wouldn’t have been able to do. We designed the Magic Hour Promo to reward our customers, every day, every week and every month till the promo ends”, he said.
Beuvelet, while commending customers in Abuja for being among the most active participants in the promo, assured subscribers of more loyalty initiatives even as he reaffirmed the telco’s commitment to raising the bar of quality of service and adding value to its customers.
The Magic Hour Promo which kicked off on February 11 will run for 90 days; the promo is 9mobile’s way of celebrating and rewarding its customers for their unwavering loyalty and brand affinity.
