Nollywood actor and film producer, Bolanle Ninalowo has revealed why he joined leading Nigerian pharmaceutical company, Shalina Healthcare as a brand ambassador.
Speaking at the official unveiling on Wednesday in Lagos, Ninalowo said that he decided to join the pharmaceutical company not just because of his love for marketing, but also for the fact that, the commitment of the company to initiatives and ideas that concern the masses.
Ninalowo, while appreciating the company for recognizing him said; “I always want to sell, but mostly to touch lives and connect with the people. The main synergy I see with me and Shalina is its passion for the people which informed the affordability of its products.
“I am very delighted to be here and I sincerely appreciate the management of the company. I am honored as well as humbled to be recognized, I will jealously guide this opportunity. I am set and I can’t wait to promote Polygel to the world.”
Introducing the new brand ambassador to the public, the Deputy General Manager (Marketing) West Africa of the company, Sandeep Sahu, said the pharmaceutical company purposefully made Ninalowo an ambassador, based on the similarities between the personality of the actor and Polygel as a brand.
According to him; “qualities and values that make Polygel to stand out and be unique among all other brands of antacid are also traceable to Ninalowo as an actor. It is interesting to note that, just like Polygel, as an antacid brand, Ninalowo as an actor is also popular, top rated, efficient, adventurous, professional, proven, tested and trusted. Choosing Ninalowo as our ambassador is with the conviction that his values are in line with what Polygel as a brand and by extension, Shalina as a company represent.”

Furthermore, Polygel offers a rapid and longer-lasting calming effect on stomach acidity.”
