Social media users shade MTN for sending cake to Oswald while Vodafone gifted his school free internet for a year

Two of Ghana’s Telecommunication giants, Vodafone and MTN, are trending on social media after they both gave out packages to Oswald Gennuh, whose “Our Day” celebration has gone viral.

Nine-year old Oswald Gennuh, a student of the Christ Ambassadors school in Dansoman, wrote a note to his mom detailing his expectations for his big day.

Oswald’s note was shared on social media and immediately, big brands jumped on to make his day special.

Vodafone Ghana, one of the brands, gifted Oswald and his school free internet for a year.

‘Smart kid! We love to see it. The school’s ICT lab will be connected on Vodafone Fixed Broadband connection and receive free data for a year, while our boy receives his personal Smart Surf device for home with free data for a year so he can continue being the smart kid he is,” the company tweeted.
