Tobi Amusan has joined the likes of Anthony Joshua and Mikel Obi to earn a lucrative long term endorsement deal with the telecommunication Giant, Globacom.

Amusan, who is the first female athlete signed by the telecommunication company, is the first Nigerian ever to win Gold at the World Athletics Championships after racing to a stunning world record time of 12.06s.

She also won Gold at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

While signing her contract at the Mike Adenuga Towers, Amusan said Globacom has an history of rewarding hard work and is pleased to be working the global brand.

“As we all know, Globacom has a long history of rewarding excellence and empowering people. I am happy to join a long list of stars like Anthony Joshua, Mikel Obi, Osaze Odewingie  among others. As a global ambassador, I hope to mentor and inspire younger people to achieve their goals”.

“I’m going to do my very best to be a good representative of the company and use that to inspire the next generation. However, I am grateful to the chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, for giving me this amazing opportunity. And thanks to everyone that has made it possible. And I’m also thankful to everyone that has taken the time out to attend this event.”

She also admonished Nigerian youths to be focused and go for whatever they set to achieve.

Lagos Regional Manager, Lawrence Odediran, who spoke earlier said the company was proud of Amusan’s achievements, saying she’s an embodiment of the Nigerian spirit.

“At Globacom, we are very proud of what Tobi Amusan has achieved in her athletics career. She is an embodiment of the Nigerian spirit of resilience, hardwork and enterprise which enabled her to excel irrespective of the enormity of the challenges she encountered in her quest for success. As a Glo Ambassador, Tobi Amusan, will represent the company and project the image of the brand across the world.

Mr Odediran said the contract is for a long time and very lucrative, considering Amusan’s international status.
