Legend Extra Stout has embarked on a campaign to identify with, celebrate and reward local legends in the different cities where its show, the Legend Real Deal Experience is held.
In line with that decision, the brand has conferred on Nnewi native, businessman, politician, philanthropist and entrepreneur, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah the title, ‘Legend’.
The 45 years old CEO of Capital Oil and Gas Limited, and Chairman of Ifeanyi Ubah FC expressed delight that he was being honoured.
An elated Ubah said; “It’s a great honour to be celebrated by Legend Extra Stout in this way. I am grateful for the award and for the fact that my Nnewi people get to unwind. It’s a good thing to take the evening off to just relax.”
Speaking on why the brand is recognising and celebrating Legends, Portfolio Manager-Mainstream, Lager and Stout brands Nigerian Breweries Emmanuel Agu said; “We believe there is a legend in every man and by celebrating those that are well-known, we can inspire other men to come out of their shells and be real men. It was a great honour meeting Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah tonight and I’m glad the people of Nnewi came out to not only celebrate him but to also have a great time here at the Real Deal Experience.”
The show, which also featured exciting performances from dancehall star Timaya, popular live band Tipsy Kelvano, and exciting onstage performances from popular comedian De Don and some local acts, saw thousands of Nnewi residents gather for a night of fun at the Kings Palace Hotel.
Legend Real Deal Experience will visit Lagos, Port Harcourt, Aba, Abuja, and Enugu in the coming weeks. Legend Extra Stout was launched into the Nigerian market in 1992, and was named Legend because it suggested solid reputation and authenticity.
