TV host, Dosumu, emerges first ‘Miss Eva’
A graduate of the University of Ilorin and screen diva, Miss Ebun Dosumu, has emerged as the first brand ambassador of Eva Wine, a leading non-alcoholic drink, after weeks of a highly competitive contest.
Nollywood superstar and show host, Deyemi Okanlawon, engaged all the finalists in a fireside chat, which allowed the judges to closely assess them on eloquence, intelligence and brand affinity.
After their review of the night’s performances, as well as points garnered earlier in the competition, the judges presented the host with the result, who went on to announce the bubbly Dosumu as the overall winner.
Nimi Amachree emerged as the first runner-up while Lilian Orakwe was named second runner-up. Pamela Ifejoku came fourth.
Dosumu went home with the grand prize of N6 million, an all-expense paid vacation to Dubai (courtesy of Voiaj Travels), a complete makeover, staycation, product supply and many more including a visit to the company’s headquarters in Spain.
The first runner-up was given N500,000, a complete makeover, staycation, product supply while the second runner-up was rewarded with N300,000, a complete makeover, staycation, product supply and other exciting prizes.
The Country Manager for Eva Group, Tope Akanni, was excited at the success of the competition. He identified with the high level of creativity displayed by the contestant as well as ‘My Eva Story’ videos.
“We already promised that our ideal Miss Eva would be a wise young woman who can represent Eva Wine, home and away, as a virtuous, warm, creative, fun, and friendly personality. Now that we have found her, Nigerians should look out for her in the next year because she will be the face of the brand on TV, billboards, social media, events and everywhere, from chat rooms to boardrooms,” he said.
Reiterating why the Eva Wine brand decided not to engage a top celebrity or influencer as its brand ambassador, Sanni explained how fulfilling it has been for the brand to watch exceptional young ladies grabbing opportunity to become self-made celebrities.
He promised that the search is the beginning of a new era during which the brand would support and invest more in the Nigerian youth through the media and entertainment industry.
Managing Director of Voiaj Travels and one of the judges, Lanre Olaniyan, noted that the toughest task was picking a winner from the array of talents that made it to the final. He noted that all the contestants were, indeed, winners.
“It is a huge congratulations to the team and winner. We are indeed proud of this project and our partnership. As the official travel partner for Miss Eva, I’d like to say her celebrity travel lifestyle starts now and we cannot wait to welcome her to the beautiful city of Dubai,” he said.
