French smartphone brand WIKO has signed P-pop group G22 as its first celebrity endorsers.
The four-member girl group composed of Alfea, AJ, Bianca, and Jaz debuted in February 2022 under Cornerstone Entertainment. The group has released two hit songs, “BANG!” and “Babalik.” They were also part of PPOPCON 2022, a two-day P-pop convention held at the New Frontier Theater and Smart Araneta Coliseum earlier this year.
“We’re very excited because this is our first endorsement as a group,” said AJ, the leader and main rapper.
“We want to share our advocacy and spread more awareness that everyone is a female alpha, and that WIKO is also an alpha brand,” added Alfea, the lead vocalist and visual of the group.
“[WIKO] is at the forefront of technology in terms of function and design. That is exactly the type of branding we want for G22,” said Cornerstone Entertainment president Jeff Vadillo.
“We wanted to create a girl group that is at the forefront of OPM and P-pop in terms of music, style, visuals, and music videos. Definitely, being an alpha girl group makes WIKO the perfect brand to partner with as one of the up and coming tech brands right now,” he added.
Launched in 2011, WIKO aims to bring French and fresh aesthetics with their smartphones. The brand entered the Philippine market in 2022 with its signature models: WIKO T50 and WIKO T10.
As part of the partnership, WIKO and G22 have upcoming projects and events lined up, including mall shows.
