- actress, Influencer and now Fintech ambassador after signing deal with Nigerian start-up, Bamboo
January marks a New Year with new resolutions, and new promises to yourself to fulfil your financial goals. This new year, follow in the famed footsteps of Otedola – newly-appointed ambassador for Nigerian fintech start-up Bamboo, and start this year on a high with a stream of global and local investment options using Bamboo.
Remarkably, this isn’t the first time that actress and media personality Temi Otedola has ventured into the tech world. This ambassadorship announcement comes mere months after the release of Temi Otedola’s latest Nollywood feature film – The Man for the Job – on Amazon Prime Video, in which Otedola embodies the role of an IT genius within Lagos’s colourful and contemporary fintech era.
The film is directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, whose passion for fintech encouraged Otedola to dive deep into the tech industry while immersing herself in her character. “I’m so often inspired by people who are doing big and bold things!” Temi says. “With this Bamboo ambassadorship, I hope to encourage other Nigerian youth to take independence in their investments and lead them to entrepreneurial success.”
Currently available in Nigeria and Ghana, Bamboo is an app dedicated to helping Africans build wealth from the ground up by offering easy, secure and reliable access to above-inflation returns through investments in publicly-listed US companies, a bundle of companies called an ETF, other African companies, mutual funds and fixed income products from around the world.
Temi has established herself as Nollywood’s rising star – formerly being a TV presenter and fashion influencer. She has previously worked with top-tier international luxury brands including Gucci, Bulgari, Estee Lauder and more.
In the last few years, she has made waves in the award-winning Netflix Original ‘Citation’, ‘The Man for the Job’; and most recently her stage-debut performance in ‘Motherland the Musical’ shot her to Nollywood stardom and has positioned her as a formidable talent from Africa to watch.
