His words: ‘this partnership is consummated in the cultural ethos of the Yorubas because it is one between two historical brands: Osun Osogbo, a 600 year-old festival that truly reflects the traditional culture of the Yoruba race and Goldberg, the fastest growing beer brand in the South Western region of Nigeria.’

Adelaja also stated that, as a socially responsible organization, Nigerian Breweries has been good partners with people from the region and will remain committed to Winning with Nigeria by championing causes that add value to the society such as the Osun Osogbo Festival. ‘We have made a commitment to deliver superior customer value through our products and social responsibility footprints,’ he said.

He showered royal blessings on the Goldberg team; assuring them of a safe time in the ancient city and his support for their activation over the duration of the festival.

Funso Ayeni, Senior Brand Manager, Regional Mainstream Brands, Nigerian Breweries Plc, revealed the brand’s plans of uplifting the town with exciting communication materials that will create a memorable beer experience to excite and reward its loyal consumers in the town during the Festival. ‘We plan to activate a 15-day Goldberg Beer Village where indigenes and visitors will be exposed to an unforgettable and befitting experience with lots of music, comedy, traditional performances and rewards,’ he said. He further buttressed that the corporate partnership will not only enhance commercial activities in the town, but will increase trade transactions especially at the beer village where thousands of guests will be visiting daily, thereby impacting positively on the economy of the town and state.

The Goldberg brand also sponsors relevant community festivals that showcase and celebrate the rich traditions of the people of South West Nigeria. For the third year running, Goldberg will be part of the Osun Osogbo festival as the “OFFICIAL BEER SPONSOR” in the beer category.
