A day later, we will be getting pumped in Abuja about Agbarho, a love story (and the name of a town in Delta State) which centres around a female character who refuses to marry her father’s choice and the series of difficult choices she had to make as a result.

The MTN Foundation, supported by MTN Nigeria is big about three things – Economic Empowerment, health causes (we like to call it, Mother and Child) and Arts and Culture!

Everything we do is guided by empowering our people, contributing to better health outcomes and supporting the best of Nigerian creative talent.
