Hollard Life Assurance has partnered with pan-African fintech company, Cassava Fintech and Vodafone to launch a micro-insurance product providing funeral and disability cover to the underserved.

The insurance product, called ‘MeBanbɔ’ – loosely translated to ‘My Protection’ – can be easily accessed via a mobile phone by dialing USSD code *269#.

MeBanbɔ offers tailored packages of GHS 1 000, GHS 5 000, GHS 15 000 and GHS 30 000 funeral and disability cover for premiums as low as GHS 1, GHS 5, GHS 15 and GHS 30 respectively. It is the first micro-insurance product of its kind offering packages that suit different personal needs. It is open to persons older than 18 years who use the Vodafone mobile network.

Patience Akyianu, Group CEO of Hollard Ghana, the parent company of Hollard Life Assurance, described the launch of MeBanbɔ as a significant milestone in the business’ quest to enable more people to create and secure a better future.

Patience said: “Our business goals are tied to our purpose to ensure access to insurance as a social good and an enabler of better futures. We make it a point to be a catalyst for enduring change by providing insurance products that serve the needs of our customers. MeBanbɔ is a prime example of this, and we are proud to bring it to market in partnership with Cassava Fintech and Vodafone Cash.”

Nashiru Iddrisu, Managing Director of Hollard Life, said: “We developed MeBanbɔ after engaging with potential customers in underserved markets who expressed interest in securing their financial wellbeing against unexpected incidences, such as funerals and disability.

“However, they also revealed a reluctance to sign up for traditional life insurance products because of the seemingly unaffordable premium amounts, modes of payment and claims collection process. MeBanbɔ eases these concerns. It is made for them, affording everyone the opportunity to plan their future wellbeing simply via mobile money, in amounts that suit their pockets and with an equally simple claims process,” Iddrisu said.

MeBanbɔ is currently available via Vodafone Cash and made possible through a partnership with Vodafone. Head of Vodafone Cash, Martison Obeng-Agyei, said: “Our decision to partner the MeBanbɔ Insurance initiative was intuitive because this is yet another example of an innovative and affordable insurance product for Ghanaians. This creates a golden opportunity for scores of hitherto underserved persons and communities to avail themselves of the benefits of insurance to secure themselves and their loved ones against future upheavals, and ultimately improve their quality of life. Inclusion is one of our pillars as purpose-led organisation and undoubtedly a critical prerequisite for equitable growth as a country.’’

In a statement, Godwin Mashiri, the Head of Cassava Fintech International’s Mobile Insurance Business, the platform provider for MeBanbɔ, said: “We are very excited to be a part of this partnership with Hollard Life Assurance to launch MeBanbɔ in Ghana. This partnership demonstrates and underscores our commitment towards a socially and financially inclusive future that leaves no African behind. It is our hope that the launch of MeBanbɔ in Ghana will enable those who could not access affordable insurance cover to benefit from this product. This partnership will not be the last as we continue to provide a platform which improves the lives of everyday people across the continent.”

MeBanbɔ’s product messaging campaign in English, Twi, Ga, and Dagbani languages encourages the public to sign up for “plenty asomdwee, toinjol3 or suh’doooo” via *269# on the Vodafone network.  It features the popular comedian and TV personality Akrobeto, and local boxing champion, comedian and TV presenter Bukom Banku, as taxi drivers discussing the financial wellbeing that funeral and disability insurance cover brings.

Dedebah releases ‘Have Fun With it’

Published

on

Hip-hop is one of the most loved musical genres in the world and Ghana is no exception to this rule and as the music keeps evolving, so do the creative artists behind the songs. Dedebah is one of the first names that come to mind when the topic in discussion is “Ghanaian Female Rappers”. Dedebah is a very versatile rapper who does not shy away from any challenge. Her sound has gained massive recognition from top blogs and major industry players including hip-hop heavyweights Sarkodie, Medikal, amongst others.

Dedebah is at the pinnacle of her career where she deems it a necessity to give her fans a full body project instead of the occasional singles. Last year she took to social media to announce her maiden EP dubbed “Bosompemaa”. The anticipation for this project has gone through the roof with fans being eager to get their hands on this EP. The African Rap Diva decided to stop fans from lingering anymore by putting out the first major single off the “Bosompemaa EP” titled “Have Fun With It”.

“Have Fun With It” is a groovy hip-hop song with a very catchy and melodic hook. In the first verse she shows off her lyrical prowess. She can be heard saying in local dialect twi “Bosompemaa, mey3 ohemaa” which is simply to remind the listener of the Queen that she is, with no other person being at par with her. The song is produced by Riddim Boss and the video was shot by Director Banitchi.

Stream and enjoy !!

“Have Fun With It” is available on all major digital music stores via this link https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/dedebah/have-fun-with-it
