Eliud 159Safaricom : Mobile Network Operator
Eliud is the greatest athlete of all time, and M-PESA is the greatest mobile money platform globally. How then do we rally Kenyans behind Eliud, leveraging a brand that like the athlete, has put Kenya on the global map?
To honour a man that knew no limits, Safaricom pushed theirs by changing their M-PESA logo into Eliud’s name. The campaign created a custom Twitter emoji that would show up when anyone tweeted using the hastag #Eliud159, adding a unique Kenyan touch to each message.
There were a lot of challenges that Kenyans faced. Therefore we wanted to remind ourselves that beneath these tough times there is a beauty and resilience in Kenyans that ought to be celebrated.
Eliud’s record attempt provided an opportunity to bring 27+Million Kenyans to come together and remind Kenyans of their resilience and ability through the greatest Kenyan of all.
