Arasi Ieremia of Manono-Tai and Digicel Marketing Manager, Edith ‘Eka’ Arp, with Digicel CEO, Mark Witthuhn.


Digicel CEO, Mark Witthuhn and his marketing team traveled by boat to Manono Island to make a surprise presentation to the lucky mother who won $10,000 tala at the conclusion of the seven-week long Top Up and Win promotion.

Arasi Ieremia of Manono Tai was one of two winners, both moms, who have been blessed just weeks before Mother’s Day with a cash prize of $10,000 tala.

Digicel had contacted her husband to help coordinate the surprise for his wife.  Mr Witthuhn and the team then made the boat trip across to the island and were greeted by the happy family.

Mrs Arasi Ieremia said, after receiving her cash prize. “Thank you so much Digicel, this is truly a blessing from above. Grateful and cannot believe I have won this amount of money, what a great surprise! To name a few things I’m able to use this for, I will be saving for my children’s school, I know schools are temporarily closed, but I am hopeful for better days, today is one of them. Thank you so very much.”

Digicel has given away a total of WST$50,000 of cash in the span of seven weeks for the Top Up and Win Promotion and have launched two major promotions recently. The ‘Shake to Win promotion’ continues with $50,000 worth of prizes up for grabs with an innovative new feature on the MyDigicel app where customers can opt in to an eligible plan and shake their phones to win prizes.

Furthermore, the very popular ‘Cash Call’ promotion is back on, where prepaid plan buying customers have the chance to be called on live radio, MyFM 89.1FM for their chance to win a share of $10,000 cash for the month of April.
