Some Striking Faces we saw at Strongbow Apple Cider #GoldenHourExperience



The Ikeja City Mall was taken over by Nigeria’s first ever locally brewed cider brand, Strongbow Apple Ciders from Thursday, October 29th to November 1st for a huge sensory experience dubbed #StrongbowGoldenHour.

Featuring all the bells and whistles including special effects, a simulated farm truck ride and a magnetically levitating bottle of Strongbow and tunes from DJ Snoop Da Damaja, it was a big event which attracted everyone from TV personalities like Lamide Akintobi of EbonyLife TV to music stars, Ketchup and EFA.

In the midst of all the glitz and glam however, we couldn’t help but notice some faces which stood out from the crowd for being outrageously beautiful or just very interesting. Here are some of the faces of the #StrongbowGoldenHour:

1. Bruh.. She walked into the room and everyone couldn’t keep their eyes off her! We’re talking Orente, Adaobi, Gollibe, African Queen and the Proverbs 31 woman all rolled into one criminally beautiful package. Shout out to EbonyLife TV presenter, Lamide Akintobi!

​2. Move over Jidenna! We now have a Classic Woman. It doesn’t get more glamorous than this. If she was an artwork, we would gladly buy it to hang on the living room wall. Outstanding.

3. Did she get prettier than she already was? Uche of Galaxy TV took our breath away on Thursday night. You go girl!

35-Uche Okoabah
4. OK enough of the beautiful ladies now. Here’s a dude with a very interesting hairstyle queuing to enter the #GoldenHourExperience.

5. If that smile was any wider, he would have to be licensed by NAFDAC as a human antidepressant. One Love Ketchup!

09-Ketchup 1
6. A cool, regular looking guy who for some reason just stood out. Maybe it’s the cool, understated charm and charisma, or maybe it’s the classy but muted fashion sense. A face that sticks in the mind.

​7. The happiest guy in the room. No, not really, but he kept smiling all night long and his smile is that infectious type that you just can’t help but notice…

      LMAOOOOOOOOOO. The one that killed me was the lady that took their breathe away… also “a cool regular guy.. with a face that sticks in the mind”. Buhahhahahaha.. someone at BN moonlights as a Harlequin romance writer. Oh BN, never stop BNing.

      Please check your sense of humour. What has Ogbomosho got to do with it anyways? That BN would approve a comment as lame as your yours is actually depressing. The article was so funny, the play on words very interesting and the message wasn’t lost on people with sensible people!

      @ Ogbomosho. No need insulting a beautiful Yoruba town. Totally uncalled for.
      Seriously though, the article isn’t bad at all. Looks like it’s from one ‘attendee’s” perspective. You know how you go to events, and just people-watch? Sad it’s categorised as ‘sponsored content’. Guess what’s why some don’t get it. It’s actually a good read for me. Quite creative.

    Hold up, wait one sweet minute…

    …. it was Millers not long ago and now Strongbow don also enter Naija market? Hahahahahahaha!!!! Nigerians, my dear and hopefully not-so-gullible Nigerians, let the glamour of all these red-carpet “unveilings” that alcoholic beverage companies are using to mask their true plans not fool us ohhhh.

    Dem don all dey gather inside Lagos to mine their millions from our very notorious drinking culture and like their ancestors with cheap mirrors, wetin dem carry come no go reach a hundredth of the value of wetin dem plan to leave with. My people ohhhh, make our own no bad pass as e don already be.

    I dunno why they are saying it is brewed locally. Cider is brewed from apples and Nigeria is not exactly know for growing apples. Either it’s NOT brewed in Nigeria OR it’s really shit cider

    • samuel

      November 5, 2015 at 12:18 pm

      But did they say it was brewed from “locally-grown apples”? Imported apples or not… the drink was brewed locally. This is simple English.

    • GroovyChik101

      November 5, 2015 at 2:54 pm

      They said “brewed locally” not “produce apples locally” it’s simple English guy! Why not give the drink a try before calling it shitty! This is the problem with Nigerians. Smh

    Don’t be dumb. This is just a picture story. Appreciate creativity when you see it. apples can be imported to brew the cider. duh…….

    Not sure why y’all are mad tho. The writing is quite witty and funny. Some people just don’t get offbeat humour. Smh. I thought Bella Naija was for the ‘cool kids’, and to think the product is meant for you guys. You people are here sounding like you belong to Ogbonge Blog comment section or something. Haba! Abeg, nothing wrong with the writing jare. Cool people get it.

    November 5, 2015 at 12:57 pm

    Lol @ the guy who got infectious smile, I had to laugh again after seeing his photo. Nice one. Bella, take note!

    This is why I don’t like to comment on BN again. The quality of commenting here has dropped so badly. Imagine someone who will claim he went to school who doesn’t get the message of this simple picture story. Smh is there hope for Nigerian youths?
