In this article, we gave you a little background information on Airtel’s “The Rainmaker” teaser and what we think it could be hinting at – a TV series, or another mind-blowing advert. Well, we’re back with more gist on that.

Asides being a period piece and starring Nollywood veteran, Jide Kosoko, here are other things we found out.

• It is part of Airtel’s “Data Is Life” advert series.

• Nigeria’s rich and diverse culture is on full display.

• The acting and storytelling is superb.

Airtel doesn’t fall hand; they keep keep dropping amazing on-screen content back-to-back.

Just see for yourself.

We love this whole cultural concept from “the smartphone network.” You should too. It’s available on Airtel TV if you’d like to rewatch the video. Also, stay alert on Airtel Nigeria’s social pages for more gist and get ready to #RepYourTribeWithAirtel as there’ll be prizes of up to 100, 000 Naira to be won.
