The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) has grabbed opportunity by its horns by recruiting popular soca artiste Tian Winter and Disc Jockey (DJ) Bruce “Supa Dymond” Barthley as its new brand ambassadors just a few weeks after their contractual agreement with telecommunications rival, Flow, came to an end.
“While I could continue speaking about the very bright path this organisation is on, today is however a day with a different purpose. It’s a day for us here at APUA to welcome two of Antigua’s best in the entertainment arena to be a part of the APUA family. I speak of mister 100 percent local Bruce ‘Supa Dymond’ Barthley and none other than the winter man himself, Tian Winter,” APUA telecommunications manager Vaughn Brown said.
Yesterday, APUA made the big announcement in the presence of several other INET brand ambassadors. Brown said they are pleased to welcome both men to the INET family.
“While I’m aware that these two individuals do not need any introductions, I must say that Dymond has been a very strong advocate for the local product. He’s a patriot to the core and I’m sure you must have heard him with that ‘100 percent local’ refrain. It was therefore natural synergy to have him join the INET family.”
“Tian for his part is a very well-known Antiguan artist and song writer. His accomplishments: the 10 Party Monarch crowns between Groovy and Jumpy competitions. Through his work, he has been an ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda and now he is home to support the only local telecommunications provider,” Brown said.
Both entertainers expressed their feelings, having made the shift from another telecommunications company, FLOW, by sharing the sentiment of feeling at home.
The telecommunications manager also revealed that discussions began with the two men last year after INET rebranded.
