‘Lost’ is a story of a man marooned on an island. The ad is a metaphor for how digital natives feel when they are out of data (internet connection) or are connected to an unreliable data service which is commonplace in the growing Nigerian and West African telecoms space.
Speaking shortly after receiving the award at a ceremony in Berlin, Abolaji Alausa, Executive Creative Director, Noah’s Ark Communications Limited, dedicated the award to the client- Airtel Nigeria for creating the enabling environment and for the uncommon partnership in creating great creative works that have put the brand ahead of competitors.
