At this year’s HERtitude, Sparkle will give out cash and exclusive gift prizes worth N2 million to festival attendees that emerge winners in the lineup of fun activities curated especially for guests with funded Sparkle accounts. There will also be raffle draw where N800,000 will be won by four lucky sparklers. 

Uzoma Dozie, Chief Sparkler at Sparkle, expressed excitement about the partnership. According to him, “Sparkle loves women! That’s why we’re beyond excited to be the headline sponsor for HERtitude ‘24. For us, HERtitude isn’t just an event; it’s another avenue to express our love and unwavering commitment to women. Women are the vibrant heartbeat of society, essential to our collective success and growth. Without their contributions, talents and leadership, our nation cannot reach its full potential. Join us in celebrating their strength, achievements and brilliance at HERtitude ’24.”
