Mejja is never short of creativity when it comes to his craft. And this is witnessed in the new advert that they partnered in with Timiza loan app by ABSA.
His smooth way of ‘spitting lines’ with the charm that only he has perfected how really resonates.
The proof you need is in the string of hits the Gengetone star has released in recent years.
One thing I did notice is that Mejja swapped his infamous tumbler with a mobile phone that has the Timiza app installed. Also, the advert title ‘Mejja limits’ is a brilliant play on words, highlighting the major loan limits on loans that Timiza offers.
Timiza ad synopsis
The gengeton star Mejja, who also goes by the name Okwonkwo, highlights how your friends or family members can benefit from taking a Timiza loan.
Mejja then goes on to explain why Timiza loan benefited his friend, a lady running a bakery.
“Niaje, uko na bakery biashare plan?”
Tuko na Timiza loan limit to make it happen.
So you too can achieve, your limitless potential.
Jiwezeshe na Timiza. Au sio. Ajaab.”
I think the script is brilliant, simple and nails the tone perfectly. But that’s just my take on it.

What is Timiza?
Timiza app is a complete financial app on your phone that is available to download from the google play store or the Apple app store.
It offers its users instant loans to their mobile phones, the ability to send money, pay bills/ utilities, purchase airtime and also get insurance cover.
Yes, the Timiza app is a multipurpose app compared to other mobile loan apps and it’s offered by ABSA bank, formerly Barclays bank.
It comes with many features that categorise it more as a digital banking app available on your phone. Meaning you can borrow money through a loan, send money to other Timiza users or use it as a savings account.
Features that Timiza app offers
Let’s quickly go through the features of the Timiza app.
