LAGOS, Nigeria; 24th August 2018

 

Leading telecommunications company, MTN Nigeria has launched MTN mPulse, its latest innovation uniquely designed for tweens and teens to enable them learn and gain useful skills while having fun.

Held at Landmark Events Centre on August 23, the elaborate launch saw a transformation of the venue into a wonderland that featured memorable attractions and activities including a Virtual Reality masterclass facilitated by a 13-year-old, JSS3 student, Obaloluwa Odelana.

The children at the event aged between 9-15 were also inspired by works by the youngest hyper-realism artist in Africa, Kareem Waris Olamilekan of Waspa Art.

Speaking at the launch, General Manager, Consumer Marketing, Oluwole Rawa said: “We always seek to proffer innovative and relevant solutions that enable our customers connect with their tomorrow. This platform does precisely that, providing a controlled environment where our youngsters can explore and learn more, and have fun while doing it.”

“MTN is a community of people from across the country, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters some of who are parents themselves. We all have family connections and like you, are dedicated to protecting and nurturing a brighter future.”

The mPulse package comes with a voice plan and a fun, educative website which hosts a wide variety of courses and study aids to help children from Primary 1 to SS3 excel. The portal also provides a bouquet of single and multiplayer games as well as life skill videos. From computer programming, fashion designing, medicine and blogging to engineering, writing, data science and motivational speaking etc, there is something for every interest.

The Portal has built-in parental controls. Once a child is signed up, the registered parent/guardian can track and control what the child is accessing on the Internet.
