In the bustling streets of Kampala, where opportunities often seemed out of reach for many, Sanyuka TV’s Bid Leo auction is changing lives in unexpected ways. The air was filled with excitement as Byamukama Nelson, a dedicated viewer of Sanyuka TV, found himself unboxing his brand new smartphone live on air during the Music Jam Tunnyuke show on Monday 17th June 2024 which he had purchased for only 554shs. 

Nelson had heard about Bid Leo through the adverts running on Sanyuka TV after which he decided to participate in the live reverse auction to try and secure himself the smartphone that was available for as low as 500shs which is the minimum bid in the Bid Leo auction. He dialled *284*250#, followed the prompts, entered the auction with a bid offer of 554shs and eagerly waited for the results of the auction once it came to an end. To his surprise, he received a call from the Sanyuka TV team informing him that he had the winning bid in the auction and asking him to come to the Next Media park on Monday 17th June to pay and collect his smartphone. 

Bid Leo is a daily live reverse auction by Sanyuka TV where users enter live auctions with a minimal bid of just UGX 500. Unlike traditional auctions, Bid Leo employs a unique bidding process where the lowest unique bid ie the lowest bid made by only one individual wins. This exciting format allows participants to purchase items at incredibly low prices daily with daily winning bids announced in the Music Jam Tunnyuke show at 5.30 pm once the auctions close.  

Byamukama Nelson was excited and pleased with his smartphone and appreciated Sanyuka TV and Next Media for making it possible for him to purchase a brand new smartphone for just 554shs.
