Leading up to football’s most prestigious tournament, the pay TV network has unveiled a thematic campaign which will feature newly signed brand ambassador – Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi.

Aptly titled “Africa Unite”, the campaign is a dynamic call-to-action for the continent to stand together and support its own in the quest to bring the FIFA World Cup trophy back to Africa.

“The campaign is also a charge to football fans to unite behind the skill, passion, resilience, narrow defeats and glorious victories of the Super Eagles (Nigeria), The Pharaohs (Egypt), The Carthage Eagles (Tunisia) and Lions of the Atlas (Morocco) as one Africa and united fans.

To join the Africa Unite movement, and of course stay up to date with all 64 matches, simply renew your Kwesé TV subscription or visit a Kwesé dealer near to subscribe to Kwesé’s satellite TV service.” Subscribing to Kwesé TV is as simple, as purchasing the Kwesé kit – complete with a decoder, dish, installation service and one month’s free subscription – from your selected dealer and get connected to a whole new world of world-class programming, including premium entertainment viewing for the whole family.
