There is a fight going on between Malawi’s two reputable financial service providers, National Bank of Malawi and the Standard Bank Malawi.
The two banks have dragged each other into a fighting zone through their adverts which have hit the social media.
The fight began earlier this week when the National Bank of Malawi installed a billboard just a few meters opposite Standard Bank’s Blantyre head office.
The billboard says: “Greatness starts with setting the Standard.”
The dig provoked Standard Bank’s anger prompting it to release a response.
“Don’t limit yourself. Why bank with nation… When you can bank around the world,” reads Standard’s response.
Another Standard bank’s sensational comeback that has gone viral on the social media says: “Be great 247 and not 6to6” which is a dig towards National Bank’s mo626 digital banking service.
Meanwhile, other companies are also advertising their services using the trend as Malawi Revenue Authority released their advert that says: “Kaya 247 olo 626, tiyeni tilipile msonkho”
