Following excellent results as brand influencers for the Chipper Cash company, entertainers Anne Kansiime, Spice Diana and TV Personality Farida Nakazibwe have on Thursday been elevated to become brand ambassadors.
They were unveiled at a press briefing that was held at Mestil hotel located in Nsambya Kampala.
According to Dan Tumuramye the country manager of Chipper Cash, the three were chosen for the ambassadorial duties because they resonate well with the target audience of the company and they have shown determination to widen the coverage of Chipper Cash in Uganda and Africa at large.
“As the official Ambassadors, they will continue to seed the Chipper mission of moving money freely, educate their audiences and our customers about the brand, our products and services, as well as help us to reach the grassroots.”

“I thank you for believing in me and I am going to serve this company with pleasure, with Spice Diana and Faridah around me, I will ensure the success of Chipper Cash across Africa,” she said.
Spice Diana narrated how Chipper Cash helped her financially through the two years of the lockdown when performances were (and are still are) on hold.
Nakazibwe expressed happiness at having her contract renewed and promised to use her social media following to push the Chipper Cash brand further.
“I am proudly associated with Chipper Cash and it’s been a wonderful period, it’s this company that opened my eyes on investments. With me on board, Chipper Cash will reach every corner of this country” she vowed.
The three signed a one year contract each and there is hope for an extension if their individual efforts yield positive results.
