2013 is already looking big for actress-movie producer Funke Akindele with the signing of an endorsement deal with Nigeria’s top jobs search website Jobberman.
It was gathered that the deal was signed in late 2012 and will last for one year.
Akindele will act as brand ambassador for the IT company.
We could not immediately confirm how much she was paid, but those familiar with the deal say it’s ‘a couple of millions’.
‘Being Nigeria’s number one Jobs website, we realised that there is a need to reach out to a set of people that are not aware of the existence and usefulness of Jobberman’, a Jobberman exec confirms.
‘With over 500,000 registered users, a large number of active users of the internet are aware of Jobberman but the set of people we are targeting now basically visit Facebook and check mails only’.
Akindele, 36, is expected to appear in TV commercials and record radio ads. She will also make appearances at her Jenifa Foundation as well as Jobberman events.
