Giving more details about the initiaitve, Jemibewon further disclosed that the “Share a Coke” campaign recognises Nigeria’s culture and diversity as 600 popular names have been selected from the rich array of names across the various regions of Nigeria.
“Share a Coke does not only reinforce our ongoing commitment to refresh the world but also to inspire shared moments of optimism and happiness”, Jemibewon concluded.
From 10 January, consumers will be able to buy personalised Coke in glass, can and PET from retail outlets across the country.
