Leading musician and highlife crooner, Flavour N’abania has been unveiled as brand ambassador for leading South-east beer brand, Life Continental Beer.
The deal which was signed at the Nigerian Breweries Plc Corporate Head Office in Lagos is to run for two years during which Flavour will appear in Life Continental Beer advertising and marketing campaigns. He will also feature in the brand’s online assets and make special appearances at events.
Kufre Ekanem, Corporate Affairs Adviser, Nigerian Breweries Plc, the largest brewing company in Nigeria at a press conference organised to unveil the partnership said:
“We are excited to announce today, that Flavour has joined the Life Continental Beer family as brand ambassador. Flavour, who is known globally for his unique ability to sing fluently in Igbo language, strongly represents what the brand stands for.
“This partnership underscores the brand’s dedication to the Igbo values of industry, resourcefulness and enterprise – values which Flavour aptly embodies. Just as Life Continental Beer defines the Igbo in every consumer, Flavour exudes the aura which exemplifies the typical Igbo man.”
The brand which has been for years the beer of preference for the Igbo man, made this choice to further reinforce its commitment to the heritage, essence, connection and affinity with the people of South-east.
On the new deal, an excited Flavour said joining the Life Continental beer team feels like he’s found his way back home.
“The brand has always been a symbol of the Igbo heritage. If you go anywhere and you hear Life Continental Beer, at once, the Igbo man and his entrepreneurial spirit comes to mind. I’m very proud to be associated with a beer I can finally call my own, a beer that pushes the frontiers of progress.”
Life Continental Beer pioneered regional brewing in Nigeria and has maintained leadership in the South-east region’s booming market for decades.
In April, Nigerian Breweries Plc, announced an endorsement deal with the Igbo high-life star, adding him to the league of other celebrity brand ambassadors signed on to the company.
