Popular Nollywood actress Genevive Nnaji has been known for quite a number of roles in the entertainment industry. From the cute sweetheart that got people stuck to their television sets with her unique acting skills, to that woman who caused a number of people to put on their dancing shoes with her venture into music.
She was also a one-time Face of Lux and MUD cosmetics; now she’s gone all the way into the world of classic automobile with her new deal. She has been endorsed as the ambassador of Range Rover SUV brands in Nigeria.
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.
The deal between Nnaji and the car company was negotiated in Nigeria by Coscharismotors 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 and afterwards may or may not be renewed.
