Erica Nlewedim Announced as Legend Extra Stout And Star Radler Brand Influencer
The new Brand Influencer for both brands, Erica Nlewedim, popularly known for her appearance on the reality show, Big Brother Naija is a Nigerian actress, model and entrepreneur.
According to the Marketing Director, Nigerian Breweries Plc., Emmanuel Oriakhi, the relaunch of both brands is in line with the company’s penchant for innovation aimed at attracting young consumers, and the new Brand Influencer serves as a symbol of strength, boldness and resilience which are admired by the consumers and aligns with the personality of both brands.
Introduced to the Nigerian market in 2014, Star Radler sported a blue, yellow and silver wrap which reinforced the energy and refreshing attributes of the beer. However, the brand has recently made the bold move to segue to a new look which redefines the refreshing, thirst-quenching and taste benefits of the beer mix.

After a brief period of silence for both brands, we felt it was time to refresh them and re-introduce them to our loyal consumers,” she said.
“With Legend, we sought to introduce the brand in a new light – with a new modern and premium look and a reformulated taste that will, no doubt, be a hit with those seeking to experience it. We aimed to re-introduce the brand in a new modern look too, as well as a new refreshing variant that we are sure our consumers will love.” she continued.

They embody the youthful exuberance, unrestricted freedom of expression, among other qualities that make them a perfect fit for me and my audience.
