2013 is already looking promising for actress, Funke Akindele as she has signed an endorsement deal with Nigeria’s top jobs search website Jobberman.
HVP gathered that the deal was signed last December and would last for one year.
Funke, popularly called Jenifa will act as brand ambassador for the IT company.
Let me state categorically here that, I did not snatch anybodyâ€™s boyfriend or husband. Iâ€™m single but Iâ€™m not searching
It was not immediately ascertained how much she was paid, but those who were in the know said, it was a mouth-watering deal.
‘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’, said an official of the company.
‘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.
