Similarly, Funke Akindele, actress, also joined the bandwagon of brand ambassadors afyer she signed a deal with Dettol, a Nigerian-owned antiseptic brand.
“Immediately I was contacted to get involved, I jumped on it because of the significance of this. Being part of Clean Naija will also help me reach out to more people and touch their lives in actual ways,” she had said.
