Who is sponsoring Big Brother Naija 2022?
Big Brother Naija is back to our televisions. With the return of fans and Ninjas to the show, the Season 7 edition is already generating a lot of buzz. While much of the focus will undoubtedly be on the new housemates, there will also be conversation about this season’s headline sponsor: Pocket App.
1. Pocket App
Pocket App is the same as Abeg App, the same sponsor of previous year’s edition. In case you didn’t know, Abeg App has been entirely rebranded to Pocket App, which is owned by Piggy Best.
PocketApp obtained an AIP from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on April 25, 2022, for a license application to operate as a Mobile Money company.
Pocket App provides an alternative to bank transfers in Nigeria, which are marred by several network issues and also eliminates the need for account numbers or any other account details. The only information required to sign up is the mobile number linked to the user’s preregistered Bank Verification Number (BVN).
Pocket App was launched as Abeg App in 2021. New as PocketApp, the payments app has about 2 million users to date. The company initially started its journey as a payment platform for sending and receiving money. It has since ventured into a full social commerce app, connecting buyers and sellers across Nigeria and soon Africa.
