The Ooni disclosed that he has always dreamed of owning a soft drink brand that would produce quality products to position Nigeria in the global soft drinks market.

“One of our main focuses is our sheer determination to elevate homegrown brands instead of demarketing them. That’s why we have put resources together to create these exceptional drinks and produce what we consume to reduce importation and save the naira.”
