LAST week, a 17 year old secondary school student, Master Nnaechebe Ozuluoha became a millionaire. He won N10 million in the Mega Reward Promo floated by top mobile operator, MTN Nigeria.
As Ozuluoha was announced Thursday to join the stream of millionaires that MTN has created since a couple of months of the promo, his parents turned the Bridge Waters Hotel, Enugu, venue of the 4th prize presentation for MTN 1 Billion Naira Mega Reward promo to another praise camp, singing and dancing to the glory of God.
The teenage millionaire alongside nine others were presented with cheques for N10 million on November 3, at a colourful ceremony which had the telecommunication giant giving away over N102million to its subscribers. Describing their
experience, the new winners said they were surprised and highly elated to be among the lucky subscribers to be rewarded with ten million naira each.

Another N10 million winner, Mrs. Doyinmola Ayeni, a trader from Kwara State was no less excited about her win in the reward scheme. “I have never seen such money in my life,” she enthused. “This is certainly a life-changing experience for me and my family as I can now be rest assured that my children will have the best education available.”
