Nollywood sweetheart, Genevive Nnaji has landed herself a huge deal becoming ambassador of Range Rover SUV brands in Nigeria.
It’s not the first time the stunning actress will be endorsed by a big brand. She was a one-time Face of Lux and MUD cosmetics; but this is bigger than the last two.
It was also reported that in February, she sealed a N50million endorsement deal with Cinitrion Energy Drink.
The endorsement deal, which is said to have been facilitated by her management company based in the United Kingdom, makes her the only female celebrity of the brand, others include American singer, Akon; and Nigerian footballer, Osaze Odemwinge; who are also Cinitrion Energy Drink ambassadors.
According to Business Day online, the latest deal between Nnaji and the car company was negotiated in Nigeria by Coscharis motors which is the car brand owner in Nigeria. The company initially had a tough time weighing Nnaji and actor, Desmond Elliot before determining she was the candidate for the role.
Reports say she will get $100,000 in the first six months of the deal and at least $250,000 subsequently. She will also be presented with a Range Rover Sports SUV which is the car in vogue among A-List celebrities in Nigeria.
The deal will reportedly run for 12 months.
The Range Rover is a big luxury four-wheel drive sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced by Land Rover, a British car maker. The model which is now in its third generation was launched in 1970 and developed by Land Rover as its premium brand. It is used as a brand name on two models – the Range Rover Sport and the Range Rover Evoque.
