The award winning singer, song writer, television personality, entrepreneur and woman's rights activist will represent South Asian IPTV provider & entertainment company, JadooTV Inc. in global campaigns as the company looks to enter new markets and serve ethnic communities across multiple platforms.
"Since its launch in 2008, JadooTV has counted the global Afghan community as being amongst our most loyal customers. We are delighted that Afghanistan's greatest singer of this generation has agreed to be our Global Brand Ambassador. We believe this is a natural fit. As we look to expand our service to the Afghan diaspora on new platforms, and enter other ethnic markets where Aryana has a tremendous fan following, this association will benefit all stakeholders especially our viewers," said Sajid Sohail, Founder and CEO of JadooTV.
The multi-award winner female star from Afghanistan rose to fame in 2008 with her hit single, MashAllah, a multi-lingual song in Farsi, English and Punjabi that was broadcast on many Asian and South Asian media outlets. Since then she has produced multiple hit songs in Farsi and Pashto, won numerous awards including Best Female Artist of Afghanistan on six occasions, Afghan Icon Award, Voice of Afghanistan Award and Bravery Award.
