Job Emmanuel (Joe Emma) added “Pepsi has been up and on with so many exciting things. It’s really fun and exciting singing along with Wizkid. The experience will linger for a long while. I am very pleased with the good work that Pepsi is doing. Right from the auditioning period, they have shown that they care so much for the contestants”.

Norden Thurston, Head of Marketing Seven-Up Bottling Company Plc said that Pepsi has always been at the forefront of youth culture through music. The brand has been associated with mega superstars like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears and The Black Eyed Peas to name a few. Beyonce was recently signed as the Pepsi global music brand ambassador. To show its belief in the local music industry, Pepsi has also signed artists Wizkid, Tiwa Savage and Lynxxx as its Nigerian music brand ambassadors.

The Head of Marketing also added that global stars have been discovered through the Idols music platform and he hopes the next Wizkid, Lynxxx or Tiwa will be discovered through Nigerian Idols and will go on to have successful careers in the music industry.

    I guess the gym shots were just a photo shop and nobody broke a sweat – or did they hang out for the rest of the day in sweaty gym clothes?
