Speaking at the prize-giving event, Balunywa congratulated the winners and expressed gratitude to them for taking part in the promotion.

“On behalf of Airtel Uganda, I am honored to be here, rewarding the sixth set of loyal customers and winners in the ‘Mega Masappe’ promotion. For the past five weeks, we have been rewardfing our subscribers and we are always excited to see them in a celebratory mood. Our customers’ loyalty is crucial to our business operations and we are honored to be able to reward them with life-changing prizes.”.

Balunywa also called upon Airtel Uganda subscribers to participate in the promotion. ‘Mega Masappe’ is a nationwide campaign. We have winners from various regions across Uganda, so my message to everyone is to take part in ‘Mega Masappe’- there are daily, weekly prizes to be won, in addition to the bonus calls, SMS and data bundles that come when one reaches their target.”

As part of ‘Mega Masappe’, subscribers are required to opt into the promo by dialing *162# and selecting option 1 to opt in, option 2 to check target and option 3 to redeem their data bonus – which will be broken down into Voice, SMS and Data at 50%, 10% and 40% respectively. This bonus however does not apply to social packs, quarterly, annual and free bundles.

Mega Masappe promotion subscriber bonus will be given instantly on the achievement of the daily target. For example, if a subscriber’s bonus target is Ushs. 1,000 and they recharge with that Ushs. 1,000, they will receive 100% bonus of the same value under the Voice, SMS & Data split. However, if they recharge with another Ushs. 1,000 on the same day, they will not get a 2nd bonus.

Daily and weekly prizes will be given away every Friday for the 90-days’ duration of the promotion.
