Also speaking, Adia Sowho, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN, said technology has redefined how brands do business and relate with the consumers because consumers now have direct interaction with brand and businesses, bypassing channels through technology and there is a need for business to tap into technology as communication is no longer centralized but decentralized.

‘’Technology is here to work for us, not against us. Decision-making is no longer centralized but decentralized. Your brand now belongs to users, they talk about your brand than you. It is no longer the sole property of the organisation alone.’’
