Sanchan Elegushi and Nnamdi Maduka have emerged winners of the Mr and Miss Jumia Contest.
They were unveiled as the winners of the Instagram contest at Jumia’s corporate office in Ikeja last Friday where they were both presented an award plaque and a cash price of hundred thousand naira each.
This is after both participants emerged legitimate winners in a competition which was almost marred with buying of likes.
“There were lots of people with fake likes. Several people actually bought likes, but we were chosen on the grounds of meeting the criteria. The criteria for winning was based on engaging comments, likes, usage of the hashtag and the best pictures,” Nnamdi stated.
When asked why they got into the contest, Nnamdi Maduka said his motive was grabbing the opportunity to be part of a reputable brand like Jumia, the number online retailer in Nigeria.
An elated Sanchan who was still in awe at her new found luck struggled to string words together.
Nnamdi who played the role of spokesperson attested that they were both happy to be Mr and Miss Jumia 2017 and are looking forward to promoting the brand.
“It is a good opportunity and a great incentive,” he remarked.
