#NoShakinCarryGo has been buzzing on twitter for some time now. Buckle your belt as your read this post because it’s an intriguing one. I mean who could ever think that a brand ambassador could influence a major positive change in the lives and taste buds of Nigerians like that!
I didn’t think so, may be a need a telescope to see further or think harder the Greek philosophers but I am glad about where we are and the good change the Pana crooner Alhaji Tekno has helped us bring.
So here’s what happened, Tekno tweeted on Saturday that he wanted to touch hundreds of Nigerians at the same time with two million Naira and asks for creative suggestions on how to, and Boom! Twitter goes agog with all sorts of requests. (You know Nigerians na! we no dey dull. Lol)
Next thing, some really ambitious (@fi_olarin) dude requests that Tekno should appeal to Pepsi to reduce the price of their 50cl plastic bottle, as that would touch millions not just hundreds.(Shuu? Dude got some balls! In this recession does he know the cost of Dollar?).
Tekno though, smart person, quickly hands it over to Pepsi lol. No time. Clearly, the request is beyond him. Interestingly, in a much-unexpected turn of events, about 24 hours later, Pepsi responds! See for yourself below.
Now the real question I wanted to ask Pepsi is. What does #NoShakinCarryGo really mean? Is the price really coming down? In these tough times, a price drop. Really?
Well I was positive about this seemingly innocent tweet because the Pepsi 50cl bottle dropping back to N100 will be the best news ever. The little things count especially in the face of current realities. All eyes were glued to Pepsi’s Twitter page from then on in anticipation of the expected surprise.
Well about 8pm on Tuesday 25th of July Gbosa! Pepsi Nigeria officially announced that the price for the 50cl plastic bottle has been reduced from N150 to N100. Thanks to every on at Pepsi Nigeria, Thanks to Alhaji Tekno for lending a voice to this course. #NoShakinCarryGo
