Imagine this: You’re heading to an important meeting, and as you pull out your phone to check  the address one last time, it slips from your grasp and crashes onto the pavement. The screen  shatters, and your heart sinks. This is the reality for many Nigerians who rely on their  smartphones daily, but now there’s a game-changer on the horizon. 

Meet John, a young professional in Lagos who, like many of us, depends heavily on his  smartphone for work, communication, and staying connected with loved ones. When John’s  phone screen shattered, he faced the daunting task of repairing or replacing his device. This all-too-common scenario is why Scrella, an innovative Insurtech firm founded by visionary  entrepreneur Gbenga Adigun, is set to revolutionize device insurance in Nigeria.
