Ace filmmaker and actor, Kunle Afolayan, yesterday, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Peugeot Automobile Nigeria (PAN), as new brand ambassador. The ceremony commemorates the company’s exclusive unveiling of the new Peugot 508 model at the NAF Conference Center and Suites, Ahmadu Bello Way, Kado, Abuja.
Spotting a six piece Agbada, Afolayan looked every inch a Hausa man, as he signed the agreement with the company’s MD/CEO, Mr. Ibrahim Dutsinma Boyi, at the event attended by select friends and clients of the company.
Afolayan attended the event with his partner, Seun Soyinka uploaded photos from the event on his Facebook page, saying;
The unveiling of the new Peugeot 508, and I was also officially unveiled as Brand Ambassador for Peugeot. I was presented with a brand new car. What a way to end the year… Lord, I thank you.”
According to Boyi, the partnership became important to showcase outstanding and complete alignment of the two brands; Afolayan and the new Peugeot, which are of international standard. Afolayan’s deal with PAN is coming five months after the filmmaker inked an endorsement deal with Air France. The partnership is also hinged on his next movie, The CEO, currently in production.
The CEO, according to pundits, will further stamp the filmmaker as a promoter of cross cultural stories and pedant for technical details.
