In recognition of Malaria and how much it has affected Nigeria and Africa over the years, the #BBNaija housemates were tasked with creating an advert that tackles the scourge.
The malaria advert was in keeping with the entertainment theme for the week, Big Brother sent the Housemates a task brief along with some research materials, highlighting the effects of malaria in Nigeria with emphasis on the effects of malaria if left untreated.
The #BBNaija Housemates are Tasked to create an advert that not only emphasizes the repercussions of untreated malaria, but also focus on the malaria medicine LumapilForte.
The advert will focus on the correct dosage of this medicine as well as the benefits of getting proper and adequate treatments in time.
As soon as the task brief wa read, the #BBNaija Housemates immediately got busy exchanging ideas and suggestions for their advert, while being mindful of the fact that the advert presentation was by the end of the day.
The key points they had to cover included the correct dosage and the affordability and cost effectiveness of LumapilForte.
They were also expected to factor the effectiveness of the drug against both drug resistant and chloroquine resistant strains of malaria, and how safe it was for the use of pregnant women and children.
The task and advert presentation was in line with this week’s theme “Nigerian Entertainment Week” and the #BBNaija Housemates had to create an advert to create an advert that would be appealing and relatable to most people while also teaching in the process.
The advert kicked off with a scene inside a bus, where a woman, played by Marvis, was being educated by other passengers on the dangers of malaria and more particularly the effectiveness and correct dosage of the LumapilForte medicine.
Big brother gave the Housemates accolades for a job well done, but is yet to decide whether or not their presentation was excellent enough to win the Wager.
