Making a remark of appreciation, one of the winners who clinched the 21 Inches Television by the name of Anthony Lahai commended Africell for introducing such a wonderful promotion for subscribers. He confessed that it was the true moment for him to believe in Africell promotions as not dubious gambling ways of duping people since he said he often detested promotions held by mobile companies as gambling and fake methods to eat subscribers’ monies.
