Maris KnowlEDGE App, A Gaming App to Learn and Earn Debuts
Esthermaris Concepts Limited, an indigenous company with a focus on delivering quality services to the public through real estate, agribusiness, logistics, edutainment/ICT, and branding, recently launched the Maris KnowlEDGE app, a gaming application that focuses on rewarding people for answering knowledge-based questions.
The Maris App comprises questions from five different fields, which include cognitive, intelligence, mathematics, English and general knowledge, with different categories ranging from primary to secondary and tertiary.
The chief executive officer of Esthermaris Concepts Limited, Mr. Oluwadamilare Bello-Akeem, said the idea behind the Maris App is to encourage reading culture and education, which is gradually losing its value in our society.
According to him, “ About 10/15 years ago, corporate organisations sponsored educational programs such as Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, which helped me a lot.
When I was younger, I could state at least 100 countries, their capitals and currencies but now, some who watch football often don’t even know the full meaning of FIFA”
He added that because of the decline in education, people don’t know their rights. “We need the young ones to be educationally conscious and to rejuvenate academic intellect in them. It’s sad that 98% of youth want to bet and get involved in criminal activities to get money, but through Maris KnowlEDGE, we want to reward them for their knowledge.
“The Maris KnowlEDGE app is an app that helps you learn and gives you an edge over your contemporaries.” He said.
On why the Maris KnowlEDGE app came at a time like this, Mr Akeem said it’s about letting the best brain excel. In his words ” Maris KnowlEDGE app is our way of encouraging education, government, and even missionaries that brought education to Nigeria. It is an app where people can play, learn and earn.”
The Maris KnowlEDGE app is in free and premium versions. People who use the free version can win up to 10 thousand naira, lasting for seven days. Those who opt for the premium version have options of subscribing for 2 thousand naira monthly,12 thousand for 6 months or 24 thousand naira for 1 year and they can win up to 1 million naira monthly.
The launching ceremony was attended by a large number of people including close associates of the founder.
Maris KnowlEDGE app is available on Android and iOS.
