Lagos. July 20, 2013: Tecno, the Chinese mobile phone maker has promised its Nigeria fans on Facebook that it will be rolling out a video contest to mark its imminent 100,000 likes on the social networking platform.
Tecno currently has 97,940 fans on its Facebook Nigeria fan page and expects to cross the 100,000 followers mark soon on the social media platform.
A Milestone Video Contest is underway to celebrate the milestone, Tecno told its growing fans on Facebook this week.
“In celebration of the upcoming milestone of 100,000 Likes on our Fanpage, we will be hosting a contest where you can win big! Stay tuned for more info…Thank you Nigeria for Choosing Tecno!” the phone marker said in the Facebook post.

Media reports have cited that Tecno claims that the Nigerian share accounts for about 50 per cent of its African market business where the Chinese company is a growing player with devices packing features but offered at relatively pocket-friendly prices compared to bigger rivals.
Tecno Nigeria was quoted as saying that the company sold about 12 million units of its phones in the country last year, a big leap from about 335,000 units sold in 2008 when it started its African market foray.
