Nigerian actress, Eniola Badmus has bagged an ambassadorial deal with the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), months after being dragged for her outfit to the Headies.
It can be recalled that the actress was trolled over her choice of outfit to the 14th Headies award ceremony.
She had graced the occasion in an orange jumpsuit along side a matching hair color. However, the outfit received tons of negative comments online, a social media user specifically said she looks like a LAWMA staff.
Fortunately, the seemingly negative comments has yielded something positive for the actress as she has signed an endorsement deal with the government agency.
The 43-years old actress took to her Instagram page to announce the exciting news and referenced the social media mockery.
“About 2 months ago, I was at the prestigious headies award show, heel high on the yellow carpet and wearing what I believe is still one of the best outfits.
Alas, the internet went agog speculating on my choice of outfit but really, I love my fans and I believe that commentary is from the place of love. Some specifically mentioned that I look like a LAWMA staff on the street.
However, those assertions have morphed into an untold success. Today I am a proud ambassador of Lagos State Waste Management Agency (LAWMA) @lawma_gov primarily to lead in adding value to the Lagos state environmental agenda through my talent and platform.
I am particularly grateful to the Lagos State government and particularly LAWMA management for this unique opportunity and to my fans, please let’s work together in making Lagos the best city. Now is the Time!”
