Soca’s power couple, Fay-Ann Lyons and Bunji Garlin, were happy to be the first in the Caribbean to be presented with the all-new, sleek Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone by Digicel.

The presentation to the couple was made during their electrifying performance on stage inside the Mas Camp in Kingston, Jamaica, in front of thousands of excited socaphiles. Just before performing their final set, Kamal Powell, Senior Sponsorship and Development Manager for Digicel Jamaica, surprised the artists where he made the presentation to them.

To express thanks to Digicel, Bunji and-Fay Ann could not resist doing a freestyle jingle made on-the-spot in which they boasted about being the first in the Caribbean to own the first two S7 smartphones.

One lucky patron also left Mas Camp in high spirits after winning an S7 by simply purchasing call credit at the event. Walking away as the first Jamaican to own the much-anticipated device, Malcolm Eleweanya said, “I’m elated. I was not expecting this at all. Thanks Digicel!”

Meanwhile, Group Director of Marketing for Caribbean and Central America, Peter Lloyd said; “We are all about providing the most amazing devices that our customers can use on the best network. With the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, our customers can surf, stream and share for business and pleasure to their heart’s content safe in the knowledge that they are at the cutting edge of technology.”

  • Does Samsung plan to continue implementing smart schools (more like a smart classroom) as a free service or do they expect to be paid for their gifts?

    • I’m guessing that after a pilot project there is likely to be another phase in the project. That tends to be the way it works.
