Africa’s Agric Blockchain Firm unveils Tonto Dikeh as brand Ambassador

By Ifeanyi Nwoko

Agrichainx Innovative Technologies Limited, an agricultural blockchain company spread across Africa, has unveiled Nollywood star Tonto Dikeh as its brand ambassador.

At a MoU unveiling and signing ceremony held in Abuja on Monday, company management said the actress will remain the face of her brand for the next year or so.

Speaking at the event, Agrichainx Founder and CEO Dr Dodfrey Akhayagboke said the celebrity’s choice was to show his commitment to empowering the less privileged.

He said the company was privileged to have Dikeh.

“We are privileged to have her on board as a brand ambassador to support the growth of our economy and over the coming months she will help us promote Agrichainx.

“Agrichainx is an agricultural platform designed to connect farmers to market, fice, tools and resources. Make farming simple and efficient for investors, ”Akhayagboke said.

He said the company, which had been operating since 2018, had developed its native cryptocurrency called Agricoin.

He said the coin has previously been listed on various exchanges, adding that investors can easily convert their coins to any currency of their choice.

“Agrichainx has registered users in 129 countries around the world, we have very active communities in 15 African countries.

“We visited all the states in Nigeria to educate and raise awareness about agriculture and blockchain.

“We have a lot to do to alleviate the suffering of farmers across Africa,” he added.

Regarding the Nigerian government’s position on the use of cryptocurrency, he hopes the government will allow Nigerians to invest when they can still afford it.

In her remarks after signing the deal, the actress said agriculture is a sector that is very close to her heart.

She said she was passionate about making farming more attractive and salable to her peer groups and others behind her.

“We talk all the time about oil and we neglect the richest resources Africa has ever had, namely agriculture.

“I have a passion for agriculture, I am a farmer, I try to make agriculture attractive to my peers. Like me, I want to get into farming more because farming is the future, ”she said.

Dikeh called on governments to increase assistance to farmers in the form of loans and access to tools, especially in rural areas.

She argued that real farmers were found at the grassroots, stressing that they were the ones most in need of such facilities.

Dikeh added that she was a cattle and plantation farmer.
