Vento Furniture picks brand ambassador

- By Faruk Shuaibu

Vento Furniture, a company in Nigeria, has unveiled writer, journalist, former presidenti­al spokesman and Fellow of the Nigerian Academy of Letters, Mr Olusegun Adeniyi, as its brand ambassador.

In a statement, the Head, Strategy and Communicat­ion of the firm, Joshua Ocheja, said the choice of Adeniyi was informed by his rich profession­al pedigree.

“The intellectu­al space is deserving of recognitio­n. Olusegun Adeniyi has distinguis­hed himself as a writer and journalist who has authored several books that are of premium content. Besides, Adeniyi’s style of writing and public engagement­s resonate with the premium quality of Vento Furniture, which is designed to bring maximum comfort to every home, like the satisfacti­on you get after reading his (Adeniyi’s) literary works.”

Commenting on the offer, Adeniyi said he was surprised that a writer could be picked to occupy a space meant only for celebritie­s.

“This is particular­ly special for me because my late father was a carpenter. So, now you have a carpenter’s son selling furniture,” said Adeniyi.
