Lakwimana gives you the chance to surprise your loved ones with their favourite ‘Celfie’!

Having your favourite celebrity wishing you on your birthday is a truly delightful experience for anyone.  Lakwimana launches the first ever Digital Gift ‘Celfie’ for you to surprise your loved ones with their favourite celebrity wishing them personally, granting the wish of every heart of all celebrity fans out there.

The world has evolved and moved on from the era of autographs onto selfies. This has become a trend around the world, where selfies are taken every time we meet our favourite celebrities. Starting as a gesture of remembrance of the moment we had with them, it has now turned into a lucrative market where people buy autographs and sell them to the celebrity fan base. With Celfie you no longer have to wait in line to get their autographs and photos nor do you have to spend money to buy their autographs from a third party at the risk of the authenticity of the source.  Instead you can now simply get your favourite celebrity to do a customized video wish, greeting or a message.

Lakwimana is one of the longest e-commerce establishments in the market focusing on the gifting segments.
