With almost every relevant Nigerian artiste out there signing endorsement deals, isn’t it baffling that Olamide who’s like hottest rapper number 2 hasn’t signed any major deal yet?
Ponder no more! Sources tell NET Olamide has signed a multimillion Naira endorsement deal with alcoholic drink Ciroc Ultra Premium vodka and will become the first Nigerian ambassador for the alcoholic beverage.
Olamide’s management has yet to respond to our queries but inside sources tell us that the deal has been signed and sealed already. ‘The money had to be sent in three parts, that’s how huge it is‘, an insider tells us.
Ciroc, produced and distributed by Diageo is looking at promoting their brand in West Africa after launching in 2011.
By signing Olamide as ambassador, Ciroc is adopting the similar marketing model practised in the US; the likes of French Montana, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Ray Jay, Funkmaster Flex are all ambassadors for the drink.
