Its official! MTN is looking for "Thank You" songs from Nigerians, that'll express the company's appreciation to their loyal subscribers for the partnership and growth of the last 10 years. Perhaps you can do it? How would you say it in a song?
It can be in any genre, it could be in English or pidgin or in any Nigerian language – all it needs to be is tuneful and catchy, and it must convey the immense gratitude that MTN feels for ten amazing years of partnership and growth! 10 songs will be selected from all the entries by the public and a panel of experts. The successful songs will be included in a special 10th year anniversary album to be released soon.
As if having your song heard all over Nigeria isn't much of a promise, MTN will also be giving away a total of 5 million Naira to singers and musicians whose works make it to the official [email protected] anniversary album.
It's been an amazing 10 years of unimaginable change since MTN began services in Nigeria in 2001. Also, as part of plans to directly communicate with subscribers, MTN has vamped up her activities on social media platforms – Twitter and Facebook – hotspots to interact with consumers.

Step 1: Write a "Thank You" song on behalf of MTN to Nigerians.
