March 3, 2022 – Sportsbet.io, The world’s number one crypto-focused sports betting site, is making a splash in West Africa after signing Nigerian Afropop star Tekno as its new global ambassador. Tekno is beloved across the region for his flow and production on hits such as Pana and DON’T JEALOUS ME. He joins other Sportsbet.io global ambassadors, including fellow rapper King Kaka. He’ll work with Sportsbet.io to deliver game-changing promos and bonuses to players in West Africa.

Jeremiah Maangi, Managing Director at Bizin Africa, said: “Crypto-currencies adoption has been on the rise in Africa in recent times. Interestingly, the growth rate is higher than the global average. Therefore, crypto-focused platforms such as sportsbet.io are welcome on the African continent. Partnerships with talented local Africans like Tekno Miles is a welcome move that would lead to positive growth of local talent and act as a motivating factor for young Africans in the music and art industry.”
Tekno, Global Ambassador for Sportsbet.io, said: “I knew Sportsbet.io was a great match because, like me, these guys are not afraid to challenge the status quo. They are at the forefront of the crypto revolution, and I’m excited to be by their side as a global ambassador.”
