NEW Mobile Money Campaign: ‘Keep some MTN MoMo on your phones. It saves.’

Published

on

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

  • In these times, it saves to keep some MTN MoMo to pay for products and services like airtime, voice and data bundles, Yaka, National Water, shopping and much more.
  • MTN customers are encouraged to keep some money on their phones from as low as UGX 500/- with MTN MoMo.
  • It saves and its safer to have some money on MTN MoMo for emergencies, especially in these times of the pandemic and curfew.
  • MTN MoMo is safe, affordable, convenient, and can save you when you need it the most.

MTN Uganda has today launched a campaign aimed at sensitizing customers on why it’s important to keep some mobile money with MTN MoMo and the associated benefits like the convenience of paying for products and services like airtime, voice and date bundles, Yaka electricity units, national water, school fees, shopping and much more.

In the campaign that will run under the theme, “Keep some Money on MTN MoMo, It saves”, MTN is encouraging customers to keep some money with MTN MoMo on their phones, because it is convenient, safe and could come to their rescue in emergency situations during these times of covid19 and the curfews that they live under as a result.

Most Ugandans already know MTN MoMo and how it works. Many more are already using it for sending and receiving money. However, some continue to use cash for many of their daily needs. Although it is inconveniencing, some customers would rather walk to the shop to buy airtime, bundles or MBs, and even to pay for their utility bills, yet they can conveniently use MTN MoMo from wherever they are. In the end however, customers wish they had mobile money on the phones more so in emergency situations.

“This new campaign is about encouraging our customers to keep some MTN MoMo on their phones, because it saves,” said Stephen Mutana, the General Manager, Mobile Financial Services at MTN Uganda.

“You don’t have to deposit all your money, keep some on MTN MoMo to use it when you need it most. For example, if you have 5,000/-, you can deposit 2,000/- on your MTN MoMo account. This 2,000/- will come in handy when you need to buy airtime or data bundles at night when the shop is closed or if your power goes off at night and you need to buy Yaka units”, Mr. Mutana advised.

MTN MoMo can do everything and even more than physical cash. With MTN MoMo, customers can buy airtime, voice and data bundles, and can also conveniently pay for shopping at the supermarket, pay for fuel, and much more conveniently using their phone, anytime, anywhere. Even for school fees, MTN MoMo customers no longer need to queue at the bank for hours. Customers can deposit as low as 500/- on their MTN MoMo account and dial *165# or use the MyMTN app for safe, reliable and convenient transactions.

Relatedly, Stephen also cautioned MTN MoMo customers against sharing their PINs. “Keep your MTN MoMo PIN safe. Don’t share it with anyone. Nobody can access money on your phone unless you give them your PIN number which only you should know”, he concluded.

MTN MoMo is safe, reliable and convenient.

By Staff Writer

City Socialite Bad Black has finally received her money. The motormouthed mother of 3 who took part in a campaign to sensitize girls about the dangers of coronavirus has been paid today.

Black who for weeks has been making noise for whoever cares to here confirmed to us today that she has her money and is happy.

Bad Black

It all started when she shot the ad under Precision Media and later demanded 500 million yet there was no paperwork signed for this. The ministry who were the client for this said that there was no arrangement for Black to be paid and so did the agency called Precision Media.

Black went haywire on the internet, saying that she had been used and now the owners of the ad were claiming that this was her voluntary contribution to the fight against COVID19.

Yesterday, after so much noise had been made, NRM Mobilizer and Radio 4 owner, Promoter Balaam gave her an audience together with her lawyers. An agreement was signed and Black would receive her money today.

Today, the undisclosed sum of money which was packed in hard cash in a boz was handed over to the city socialite who seemed very happy to receive her money.

Black on receiving the money and signing for it said that; “I am signing for my money. I have received the money after 2 weeks. The supporters of NRM worked together to make sure I got my payment. I don’t have any shilling am demanding now. I will not cause any fracas anymore. We have made an agreement and I have been paid. I have nothing bad to say about president Museveni. I have the money now and it is very heavy. I got cash, not cheque, I always want my money in cash. Thank you very much.”

Congrats Bad Black.

By BigEyeUg Team

The B2C’s (Kampala Boys) ‘Munda Awo’ fresh release this week is earning a impressive reception from both radio and TV airwaves.

It has come to our notice that, not only the song quality but also the video is scooping enormous attention and delight from the public after NTV Uganda’s presenter, Lynda Ddane featuring in it.

It’s no doubt that Lynda is currently the main talk in the entertainment industry for countless reasons that predominantly men would table and maybe, a few women to spice it up.

Lynda Ddane

One among these are, her gorgeousness, eloquent possessiveness, versatility that have obtained her a reputable position better place above her contenders of this generation.

In this video, Lynda showa off her weapons emphasized with a typical sense of style and seductive dance moves, it being a love song.

As often known for never disappointing when it comes to dressing, popular city fashionista, Abryanz did execute trendy sessions more than anyone expected for Lynda and the music trio.

This dress code outrightly merged Lynda’s brown body that would suddenly invite anyone to an intimate moment with her.

‘Munda Awo’ is in Luganda local language to mean ‘Inside there’ and the song derives a message of a better place where someone in love desires to be in his/her partner’s life.

Written by the Kampala boys themselves, the song production was satisfied with a production from, Nessim Pan (Shot Gun Studios) and the furnishing done by Anel Tunes.

The self-proclaimed ‘God’s Last borns’ clearly highlighted their sentence in this project as they preferred visuals from video director ‘Aaronaire on set’.

Munda Awo is currently, trending in the 8th position of the most viewed videos on YouTube in Uganda.

Apparently, Lynda is keen on continuously enrolling her unsung gift in the video vixen plot.

Way to go Lynda Ddane!
