Leading up to football’s most prestigious tournament, Kwese has unveiled a campaign which will feature its newly signed brand ambassador, John Mikel Obi, captain of Nigeria’s Super Eagles.  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 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.

Having become known for its innovative programming, the broadcaster has already introduced a number of shows to excite customers. FIFA: Road to Russia, an exciting preview show that provides a build-up to the greatest sporting event of the year has started showing.

The show recaps how the various teams qualified for the biggest sporting event, and the players to look out for during the tournament.  Viewers can also relive historic moments with FIFA World Cup classic matches between 1966 and 2014.

When the tournament kicks-off, viewers will be able to enjoy shows such as Kwesé Game Day, a daily review show which unpacks the highs and lows, venues, people and players that make the 2018 FIFA World Cup the colossal event it is expected to be.

In line with the Kwesé Free Sports Tagline ‘For The Fan’, Kwesé has created a magazine show devoted to fans called Fan Fest. The show will provide a round-up of the week’s games, look at fan predictions, favourites, and throw forward to the week ahead.
