At the end of the promotion, 24 brand new Toyota Corolla cars were won by consumers while 24 other Star consumers won one million naira each in the grand crown cork category. In addition, hundreds other Star consumers won N100,000 each while thousands won free drinks, pens, face caps and T-shirts in the instant prizes category.
However, a mild drama ensued at the presentation of prizes to winners in the just ended Star BigLife promotion, as a doubting Thomas, who thought that the promo was a fluke came to the venue of the event accompanied by a mobile policeman.
Glory Onaghise, a businessman who won a brand new Toyota Corolla car came all the way from Benin, Edo State to Lagos with his brother, Eguagie Ohimole, a serving policeman to authenticate the genuineness of the promotion and collect his prize.
According to Onaghise when he was first informed that he had won a brand new car in the Star BigLife promotion, he thought it was a lie. â€œWhenÂ l was told that I had won a brand new Toyota Corolla car in the Star promo, I didnâ€™t believe it. I felt it was a lie. And that informed my decision to come with my brother, a Mopol.
But when I got to Lagos and was lodged in a hotel and finally presented with this new car, I am convinced that indeed the promotion is real. Therefore, I am seizing this opportunity to tell all beer consumers that anytime Nigerian Breweries is having any promotion, they should know that, itâ€™s real and genuine. Itâ€™s no fluke.â€
