MTN is thrilled to announce that it has been named the most admired brand by Brand Africa 100, based on spontaneous consumer responses.

The seventh annual Brand Africa 100 report was released on 24 May 2019, featuring the top 100 most admired brands in Africa.

Ranked number eight in the top 100 most admired brands in Africa, MTN is the only African brand in the top 10, as well as the most admired telecommunications brand on the continent. Furthermore, within the financial services category, MTN Mobile Money is in the Top 20 at number 19, up one position from 2018. MTN is also the overall number one brand in Rwanda and Liberia and the number one Johannesburg Stock Exchange-listed brand in the Brand Africa 100 rankings.

Brand Africa 100 is a pan-African survey and ranking of Africa’s Best Brands developed by Brand Leadership. The rankings are based on a comprehensive survey by Geopoll, a global leader in providing high-quality market research in emerging markets, and strategic analysis and weighted consumer admiration ranking by Kantar, the world’s leading data, insights and consulting company and Brand Leadership, Africa’s leading branding and integrated marketing communications advisory.
