Apart from using the opportunity of the N1m challenge to grow their brand presence, WEMA Bank has also sought to cash in by driving more people to toe the path of the popular singer by opening accounts with the bank. 1st News reports that the bank has been actively pushing this narrative on social media.
Davido has dominated the trending list for the past couple of days with his N1m challenge.

What began as a joke soon caught fire as the account was credited with N10m within seven minutes; as a number of Nigerian celebrities, entertainers, businessmen and even traditional rulers joined in crediting the account.
Meanwhile, Davido has recently hinted that he may give away all the monies received.
