Ongalicious to showcase Nigeria's rich culture and tourism
A new weekly magazine family TV show, ONGAcious, aimed at promoting Nigeria’s culture, tourism and healthy living, has begun flighting on selected television channels across the country.
Speaking at a media interactive session in Lagos, the Marketing Manager, Promasidor Nigeria, Mr. Abiodun Ayodeji, said the company has chosen to sponsor ONGAcious because its thrust aligns with the brand essence of Onga, which revolves around trust, family, responsibility and caring.
According to him, the show would expose the audience to the country’s rich cultural diversity and tourist attractions. He added that the series would help to preserve Nigeria’s cultural heritage, as it would reconnect viewers with their ancestral roots.
He said: “We have a very rich culture, which many people do not appreciate. The show is saying, ‘let us talk about Nigeria; let us celebrate our culture; let us talk about our local delicacies and their health benefits’. This is the only way the younger generation can appreciate the country’s culture.”
Each episode exposes viewers to the unique history, traditions and culture of a specific city or town. Apart from the documentary, an individual who is grounded in the culture of the place takes the audience through its history in an engaging manner. The show also shows the audience the array of local foods they can prepare and highlights the health benefits of such delicacies.
The Brand Manager (Onga), Sophiat Bello added that the TV stations were selected from different parts of the country to reflect the national appeal of the Onga brand. ONGAcious, according to her, is a pan-Nigerian programme both young and old would find valuable.
