“There should be a maximum number of SIM cards that can be tied to a single individual, possibly a maximum of 3;

“Ensure that no unregistered SIMs are ever allowed on mobile networks;

“Ensure that subscribers can easily check the number of SIM cards registered to their name, along with the associated phone numbers and networks;

“Ensure that mobile network operators fortify their networks against cyberattacks and ensure that they adhere to the provisions of the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR); and

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.
