Rap music sensation, Azubuike Chibuzo Nelson, popularly known as Phyno, has joined leading telecommunications operator, Globacom, as its brand ambassador.
The hugely popular musician who is well known for his hit song, the ‘Fada-fada’, thus joins the enviable list of Glo ambassadors, which has other stars such as Olamide, Flavour, Timaya, Omawumi, Patience Ozokwo (Mama Gee), Basketmouth, Gordons, Bovi and Juliet Ibrahim.

His inimitable style of delivering harmonious rhymes in his native Igbo language which he suffuses with English lyrics has endeared him to millions of music lovers. Phyno is one of the most sought after musicians for collaboration with other artistes.
