Veteran Yoruba actress, Ronke Alausa, has joined the league of brand Ambassadors in Nigeria.
It is gathered that the soft-spoken actress was paid a N10 million fee to become an Ambassador on the stable of Telecommunications Company, Etisalat.
Confirming the development to The Eagle Online, Alausa said, “It is true that I signed a year deal with Etisalat Nigeria as one of their brand Ambassadors.
“It’s a good deal and a very good pay.”
Iya Ereko made her debut recently with the company’s latest television commercial. Also, her face can be seen on several Etisalat’s billboard across the country.
After losing popular comic actor, Hafeez Oyetoro, commonly called Saka to rival MTN, Etisalat had searched for a likewise striking character to appear on its adverts.
The company however maintains that Saka would return to its fold in the nearest future.
Meanwhile, sources say pop star, D’banj, has also signed an endorsement deal with Etisalat.
The artiste has already shot the commercials which will soon go on air.
However, both parties are keeping sealed lips till the official announcement later this month.
The deal that is reportedly worth N250 million, if confirmed, will make him become the single highest paid showbiz personality in Nigeria
