The popular actress, who is respected and loved by thousands of movie fans across Africa and beyond, has featured in a commercial by international manufacturer, Philips. The commercial is currently airing on the international television network.
The commercial, shot in Nigeria months ago by a New York agency, Oglivy, is for Philips’ Airfryer, a new kitchen product used for frying, roasting, baking and grilling. The choice of Yvonne Okoro by the international manufacturer is not surprising because she is largely considered attractive and has a natural flair for brands promotion.
She has also contributed a lot to the African cinema. At the moment, she is not just an inspiration to the many families who watch her on the screens, she is also a symbol of hard work, respect and that ideal professional woman that many African young ladies aspire to be. Widely celebrated as an iconic figure of true African beauty with a large following, her voice and personality radiate a good confidence of a woman of character and virtue just as she appeals to a diverse audience.
There is no doubt that her track record of making a significant contribution to Africa’s stake in the creative arts—the world’s biggest business empire—and her vision of growing business conform to Philips’ mission of expanding its market base.
