Blackberry seeking to resurrect BBM
While Blackberry as a smartphone seems to have lost its way, its messenger service, Blackberry Messenger, still continues to survive. Blackberry had made the service open to other operating systems in September 2013 in an attempt to save itself, but had ultimately failed as Whatsapp quickly blew past BBM to become the world’s number one messaging service.
Falz has become a brand magnet since he rose to stardom. His many endorsements include MTN, MerryBet and car-selling service, Cheki.
