We are delighted at how the campaign has gone because it affirms Nigerians love our brand and messaging. We are excited that the first-ever Naija Highlandah will emerge on Saturday. Many interested Nigerians are welcome to attend. Just come early and rest assured that plenty of excitement awaits as we pick that courageous person to take the ultimate prize.”
The search for The NAIJA Highlandah commenced on October 6, with William Lawson’s Highlandahs storming major streets and bus terminuses in Lagos. The Highlandahs visited the Oshodi and Ikeja Bus Terminals, where they paid the bus fares of random Nigerians to the delight of beneficiaries and other members of the public.
At the media launch that followed the street activation at Bamboo Lounge, Ikeja GRA, journalists, and other partners participated in fun challenges and won exciting prizes. Nigerians also won prizes at the subsequent weekly activations at bars, lounges and supermarkets across Lagos.
Over 4,500 people took part in the activation phase of the campaign that held in lounges, bars and supermarkets.
