Intelligent Communication Enterprise Corp. Signs Jonah Lomu as Modizo Ambassador

SINGAPORE--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - Intelligent Communication Enterprise Corporation (ICE) (OTCBB: ICMC), the owner and operator of Modizo.com, has signed an agreement with Rugby legend and TV personality Jonah Lomu for him to act as their Ambassador. Jonah will be making exclusive video blogs for ICE's social media website for celebrities, Modizo.com.

Modizo.com is a new mobile social media platform that connects celebrities with their fans and followers around the world, providing mobile messaging and exclusive streaming videos produced personally by celebrities and stars.

Jonah Lomu became rugby's first true superstar when he burst onto the international scene at the Hong Kong Sevens in 1994. In the same year he was also the youngest New Zealand All Black Test player to be capped at the age of 19. In the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa, millions saw his status rise to become the game's most devastating player worldwide. He scored seven tries in five matches, including four against England in the semi finals.

During his career, Jonah scored 15 tries in the two World Cups of 1995 and 1999, (a tournament record) and has amassed 37 tries in 63 Tests for New Zealand up until 2002.

Lomu overcame an illness that involved daily dialysis and an eventual kidney transplant in 2004. Remarkably, he led out a team at Twickenham in 2005 which was the start of his comeback to the sport. He finished his playing career in France in 2010, but still remains one of the most recognised names and legends in rugby today.

Jonah, quoting on his Modizo signing, said,"I am looking forward to being able to blog on Modizo so that I can connect with rugby fans around the world, especially in World Cup year in New Zealand.

"The fact that the videos can bring us all together with an almost instant upload is very exciting. I am already thinking about where I will be uploading in the next few weeks."

Victor Jeffery, CEO of Modizo.com, believes this is another major development, as the world of sports gets ready for the next major global sporting event.

"Rugby, and in particular the World Cup in New Zealand this September, is the next major global sporting event to be watched by millions of people around the world. There is no bigger name in rugby than Jonah Lomu and we are delighted that he has joined us at Modizo. His insights to the build up and the tournament will be an exciting and informative feature that we can all look forward to.

"Jonah has been a great role model for many young rugby players and his passion for rugby has never diminished. He is a popular and knowledgeable speaker and has many fans around the world. As active contributors to the site, fans will enjoy exclusive access to thrilling insider thoughts, views, interviews, predictions and commentary in streaming video format. This will all be spontaneous, instant and uncut," he said.

The signing of Jonah Lomu and other sports stars represents the beginning of the next phase for Modizo, which was launched in Hong Kong in September and now boasts more than 400 celebrities from the worlds of sport, film and music. The company plans to further expand to cover a broad spectrum of topics and industries with loyal fan followings.

Jeffery believes that this announcement is another major success story for Modizo and looks forward to many more during the coming months. "We warmly welcome these great sporting icons, many who have become legends, and all are well informed and respected commentators to our Modizo family. This move represents not just an expansion of our sports coverage, but also our fan base which now reaches around the world from Asia to England and the rest of Europe. Modizo.com will help bring fans up close to and in personal touch with their favourite stars, athletes, musical groups and idols from Hong Kong to London and Hollywood to Bollywood. We will continue to announce new Modizors joining the site over the coming weeks, with many more famous names to follow," he said.
