THE main hall of Habour Point, Victoria Island, Lagos, was last week filled to its capacity with guests, including students, who stormed the facility for Coca-Cola’s latest continental campaign titled, A Billion Reasons to Believe in Africa.

   The global campaign, which sees happiness in everyday occurrences in the society, seeks to celebrate and highlight the positive sides of Africa.
   Anchored by the witty comedienne, Helen Paul and Isaac Moses of Goge Africa, the event, besides showcasing diverse African culture and reawakening the ‘I believe in Africa spirit’ in the Nigerian youths, had generous doses of poetry, music and dance.

 According to Olufemi Ashipa, the Brand Manager, Coca-Cola, “the youths of Africa have the manpower, the intellect and resources to change the world. Nigeria is already taking the world by the storm with great feats being accomplished in the areas of technology, fashion, business, music, literature and others.”
   Consumers not at the event can also participate in the campaign by sharing their reasons and personal stories of optimism, passion and belief in Africa on the Coca-Cola Nigeria Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/cokenaija or Twitter @CocaCola NG
