NGO, BIGI, Team up with Chisom, Ex-Nigerian Idol Contestant, To Delight 1000 Children in Makoko

On Saturday, 24 June, Rite Foods’ Bigi carbonated soft drink brand fed about 1,000 underprivileged kids in Makoko, a riverside community in the suburb of Lagos, as part of the CSR project “Share A Smile Slum Food Outreach,” which included Chisom, a former contestant on Nigerian Idol, as a team member.

The Slum Food Outreach, whose primary focus has been the Ijora neighborhood of Lagos, expanded the program to Makoko, which likewise has a large number of underprivileged individuals.

After a riveting performance by Chisom, the delighted kids were given nourishing snacks that kept them happy throughout the show, a satisfying gesture that reflects Bigi brand’s care for them.

As they all sung along to Johnny Drille’s “How Are You My Friend?” as it was performed by the former Idol finalist, the children who were unable to contain their excitement were spotted jumping and screaming.

The award-winning company, which offers a wide variety of unmatched brands including the 13 varieties of Bigi Carbonated Soft Drink, Bigi Premium Drinking Water, the number-one energy drink; Fearless Energy Drink brand, the Sosa Fruit Drink, and nutrient-dense Bigi & Rite Sausages, supported this CSR project to put smiles on the less fortunate members of society by providing food and drinks.
