Oba Adetona gave the commendation while receiving homage paid him by the Goldberg brand team at his palace during the festival. According to him, “nothing binds us more in unity than celebrating our aged beliefs and values. Goldberg is indeed a true brand for always recognizing who we are as a people and celebrating with us.” The oba gave his royal blessings and made pronouncements that Goldberg will reap good fruits for making the Ojude Oba festival a befitting one. He showered praises on the brand and Nigerian Breweries Plc for strongly backing culture and tradition thereby helping to ensure an enduring legacy.

He said, “We shall continue to contribute to make festivals like Ojude Oba more befitting for the people.” Accompanied by Funso Ayeni, senior brand manager, Regional Mainstream Brands, Nigerian Breweries Plc, and other team members, he prayed for long reign on the throne for Kabiyesi.

An age group leader, Egbe Bobayo Okunrin Akile Ijebu, Alhaji Daodu Ishola, said that the Ijebus will always cherish their age long traditions and respect others who do so.

As part of the brand’s activities for supporting the festival, it opened its beer village at the Ijebu township stadium which runs for 12 days, from the 5th to 16th September 2016, where natives and visitors to the city frequently visit to be refreshed, entertained and to network with one another on social, cultural and economic levels.
