Last week was a fun and exciting one for history-making Nigerian female bobsledders as global payments company and worldwide sponsors Visa, hosted them to a warm welcome to Nigeria, for the first time since their qualification for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Representatives of Visa were present at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport as the team arrived the country early on Thursday morning with cheers from Nigerians, family and friends. Friday was filled with lots of activities as the ladies started the day with a radio tour to Classic FM, Beat FM and Naija FM.
The team was later hosted to a cocktail send forth event with representatives from Visa, celebrities, clients/partners around to cheer the ladies, as they head to South Korea for the winter games which begin on Thursday, February 8th, 2018.
The cocktail event anchored by Bovi and Bolanle Olukanmi, was well attended with performances from Kaffy and the Shaku Shaku master- Mr. Real.
