The Chairman of MultiChoice Nigeria, Adewunmi Ogunsanya (SAN), has said the company would name its marketing building after its late Chief Customer Officer, Martin Mabutho, who died on August 24, 2021.

Martin died in Cape Town, South Africa, following a brief illness. He would have turned 48 years old on September 25, 2021.

In his tribute at an evening of tributes, memories and reflection organised to celebrate the life of Mabutho and his posthumous 48th birthday, Ogunsanya said replacing Mabutho is impossible.

“I told John [Ugbe], how do we replace Martin? It’s not possible. You can have something like, but it can never ever be the same to say this person would achieve what Martin has done,” he said.

“He’s left a huge gap, I don’t know how it’s going to be filled, and I don’t think it’s going to be filled.”

“I told John three days ago, name the marketing building after Martin Mabutho because we have to leave him a legacy,”
he said.

Ogunsanya described Mabutho as MultiChoice Nigeria’s ‘Mr Dependable’ who always had solutions to every problem.

The event tagged ‘Memories of Martin Mabutho’ was held in Lagos on Saturday, September 25, 2021. It was hosted by Chigul and Dotun and had in attendance industry leaders, dignitaries and public figures, including Mabutho’s wife, Thato, and son, Malik.

Others include CEO of MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe; the Ambassador of the Republic of Botswana to Nigeria, Pule Mphothwe; popular comedian, Basketmouth; TV personalities Ebuka Obi-Uchendu and Toke Makinwa, all of who attested to Mabutho’s impact in his short but very full life.

In a career that spanned more than 20 years at MultiChoice, Martin kickstarted his MultiChoice journey in 1999 and was later appointed Brand Manager at MNet in 2003. He led the Marketing and Sales effort for DStv Mobile in Sub-Saharan Africa before being appointed MultiChoice Nigeria’s General Manager, Sales and Marketing in 2013.
