Foundation unveils Ken Erics, Abigirl Omonu as brand ambassadors

The Enemona Josh Humanitarian Foundation on Tuesday, unveiled Nollywood Actor, Ken Erics, and Veteran Igala Gospel Minster, Abigail Omonu, as its brand ambassadors.

The duo, Erics and Omonu, signed the agreement as the foundation’s ambassadors for N12 million and N2 million respectively.

The foundation’s President, Amb. Gabriel Onoja, at the colorful event in Abuja, said the choices of the two creative actors were carefully arrived at following their track records in the entertainment industry.

He stressed their commitment, creativity in their arts, modest life, and his personal conviction that the duo has what it takes to deliver on their mandate.

Onoja noted that the engagement of the brand ambassadors would enable them to use their talents to mentor Kogi youths, thereby diverting their attention from crime, drugs, cultism, and other social vices.

“The choice of our veteran Nollywood actor, Ken Erics is strategic to use at the foundation because of his wide acceptability, modesty, responsible personality, and finesse on stage, and also for his requisite capacity to deliver on our mandate of mentoring our youths.

“We look forward in a hurry to receiving him at our tertiary institutions in Kogi State, and other creative act organisations where he is expected to meet and mentor our rough talents to well refined and finished commercially branded creative talents,” he said.

According to Onoja, the creative sector has contributed greatly to the Gross Domestic Product of Nigeria with little contribution from the government.

”This is my desire to channel our resources to the sector to empower thousands of Kogi youths who are talented in various ways.

”Already, we are concluding arrangements to reach out to various institutions of higher learning where Theater Arts and Performing Arts are studied as a course.

”The arrangement is to create a platform where Ken will interact with them, and open their eyes to the opportunities inherent in the sector,” Onoja said.

Apostle Yahousha Burrell, who spoke on behalf of the other three Co-founders, expressed the hope that the partnership with the ambassadors would yield good fruits.

He reaffirmed the commitments of the foreign partners to contribute their quota to making the foundation successful.

Responding, Erics assured the Foundation that he would bring his experience to bear, and called on Kogi youths to see the new opportunity created by Enemona Foundation as a rare one that would be beneficial to them.

On her part, the veteran gospel music minister, and the Agaba corner, Abigirl Omonu said that she looked forward to interacting with up-and-coming gospel singers in Igala land where she would provide guidance to them in the sector.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ken Erics, who is known for his prolific roles in numerous movies, was signed by the foundation with the sum of N12 million for a period of 12 months.

Erics will also interact with corporate organisations and chief executives of theater troupes in Kogi State within the next year. (NAN)
