Nathaniel Bassey #HallelujahChallenge

Telecommunication company, ntel, received an unsolicited PR boost on Saturday from gospel artiste and initiator of the viral #HallelujahChallenge, Nathaniel Bassey.

The gospeller led a successful praise worship session via Instagram from June 1 to 30 that brought together celebs and thousands of followers from 12 midnight to 1am each day.

#HallelujahChallenge was so successful, it notched up over 550,00 followers for the artiste, landed him a spot on CNN and saw his account verified by Instagram.

He rounded the programme off with the release of a single titled ‘Olowogbogboro’ and the Hallelujah Festival.

Basking in the success of the project, Bassey on Saturday told his Instagram followers how ntel facilitated the challenge.

Remember I said I will announce my winner. So after deploying almost 7 ISPs Basically due to hitches in network, NTEL was able to save the day. And what amazes me is this, out of all, it was the cheapest. I had underground fibre connection etc, costing over 3 times the cost of this, but just didn’t work. I just thought to celebrate and encourage ntel for coming to our rescue. And also spur others to excellence. It is my prayer that very soon, we would experience first class internet service at an affordable rate all across ?? Nigeria. And mind you, they always called to check if we were fine. Thank You NTEL. Note: We had no sponsorship of any kind from them. At least non that I am aware of. Someone, I heard, had paid for us after the challenges we were facing with other ISPs.

People have been blessed and so have we.”
