Obi WorldWide Was To Take Over 5 Percent Of The Kenya Market, But The Competition Was Just Too High
The Obi WorldWide a mobile phone company founded by the Apple former CEO John Sculley has exist from Kenya mobile market due to strong competition. The company who expanded to Kenya last year and aim of taken about 5 percent of the market mobile share in the country failed woefully in achieving their target. I believe this is the reason why the company no other option to close up in Kenya.
According to our source, many people have seen it company about the closure of the Kenya branch, when the Head of Operation left and wasn’t replaced, the social accounts of the Obi WorldWide are all redirecting to the gloabal social accounts.
It is also good to know that the last model of Obi WorldWide phones that was introduced to Kenya was last year September.
Obi Worldphone, owned by former Apple CEO, John Sculley, launched in Kenya last year and executives were optimistic that the phone would secure at least 5% of the market share in Kenya. Looks like they weren’t prepared for the competitive nature of the Kenyan market.
