Here’s how to stop MTN Nigeria’s frustrating adverts and text messages

Posted by Etoniru Chibueze

If you’re among those getting various texts from these popular short codes – 5021, 5020, 5030, 5031 & 4100. Do this to liberate yourself from their advertising chain.

Simply send a text message STOP to 33111.

You should get a text that reads:

“You will be removed from our campaign database within 24hrs. Thank you”.

That’s all.

  1. Elroy, thanks a million for the tip. Eagerly waiting for the codes to get out of the other three offenders’ hell.

  2. Looks like the formula is not working 100?.
    After almost 48hours of getting a reply from MTN I am still getting those ‘spam’ texts though not as frequent as previously. I just got another one from 4100 about two minutes ago.
