Specialist Graphic Designer at 9Mobile

by Area Talk

9Mobile was Nigeria’s fourth-largest telco. After making a powerful entry, using a clever PR campaign hinged on the catchy “0809ja” theme song, the company catapulted itself to a place of relevance. Until 2017, 9Mobile was called Etisalat Nigeria, a brand name it inherited from one of its major shareholders, the UAE’s Emirates Telecommunication Group Company.
