Nigerian e-commerce platform Konga.com has announced a partnership with computer manufacturer Lenovo for the launch of a new range of Android smartphones and tablets.
In a statement, Konga said the partnership is for the release of the Lenovo S650 and Lenovo A516 devices into the Nigerian market.
Gabriel Gab-Umoden, head of marketing at Konga.com, said: “We are excited about the different partnerships we have lined up this year. Every new step we take is part of our goal to create happy experiences for every one of our customers.
A big part of our mission this year is educate more Nigerians about the joys and benefits of shopping online and we believe this new partnership with Dusnumberries will help achieve this. Lenovo is a recognized device maker and we are happy they have chosen Konga as the platform to exclusively launch their new devices.”
The company has also announced another effort aimed at educating Nigerians on the benefits and ease of shopping online by partnering with the producers of dusnumberries, a show on the Cool FM radio station every Monday and Friday mornings. The show will now feature a segment called “Konga Marketplace”.
Every week, Nigerians will have the opportunity to win shopping vouchers in fun and informational games like tongue twisters while also getting online shopping tips and exclusive discounts available on Konga,” the company said in a statement.
