Local drama series Wadiwa Wepamoyo's main actor Everson ‘Man Tawa’ Chieza has been appointed Pure Platinum Play's brand ambassador.
In the series, Man Tawa plays the role of an enthusiastic footballer with aspirations to play for Manchester United.
FC Platinum public relations officer Chido Chizondo said they chose Man Tawa as the face of their campaigns because his storyline was relatable to most footballers.
“Through Wadiwa Wepa Moyo, we are able to live through the character Man Tawa as to give people hope against the odds. The world looks like it has come to a standstill but this particular story allows us to survive through the dark nights,” said Chizondo.
“As a team, we’re hoping the association allows Zimbabwe and Africa to dream through the things they can relate to – that is a ghetto story.”
She said they will work closely with Man Tawa for a year. “Man Tawa will assist us with our social media marketing among other activities for a year.”
An elated Man Tawa said for him the sky is the limit.
“Honestly it’s like I’m living in a dream and I can’t seem to wake up. The recognition is beyond my expectations and I’m very grateful to God.
“This is something I never thought I’d get, but here I am being recognised by such amazing people. Thank you FCP.”
