Barclays Bank Ghana has issued a statement on the unauthorised use of Absa logo in a viral ‘Attaa Adwoa’ video.The statement, signed by Cyril Nai, Head of Marketing & Communications is as follows:
Our attention has been drawn to a music video with the song “Attaa Adwoa” circulating on social media with the Absa logo.
We wish to distance ourselves from the said video and to state that neither Absa nor Barclays has commissioned anyone to produce or use our logo for such a production. We have instructed those involved to, with immediate effect, remove the Absa logo from the video. We have further instructed them to desist from the use of the Absa logo as well as further sharing of the said video.
As we change from Barclays to Absa Bank, we are not only building on the heritage of over 100 years of banking in Ghana, we are also part of one of Africa’s top three largest banks, backed by a large capital base and balance sheet – boasting of close to a 100 billion dollars in assets.
Our commitment to our customers and Ghana remains stronger than ever. We will continue in our role as a bank to connect the ambitions of our customers, communities and Ghanaians with financial resources, services and opportunities in innovative ways to bring their possibilities to life.
