THE ADVERT

In the advert, four different women are picked from their various regions for a cooking competition organized by Onga Seasoning cubes. They do not only have the hand, knife or material skills, but they have got good culinary skills as their food come out tasty after they all secretly came along with that seasoning cube that makes food extra-ordinary which is Onga.

ADVERT NARRATOR

DIALOGUE

Male anchor: Ladies and gentle men, we have four regional chefs, three food experts; let the contest begin

Female food expert: These are some serious skills.

Male food expert 1: (The man with the low cut): Let’s just hope she doesn’t drop the ball.

Male food expert 2: (The man with the hair): Wow! Look at those serious knife skills; amazing to watch. How does she do that?

Female food expert: Years of practice

Male food expert 2: (The man with the hair): Looks like she’s got a secret ingredient.

Male food expert 1: (The man with the low cut): Looks like she is not the only one

Female food expert: What could that be?

Male presenter: This is a tough one people. It is a tie. All meals were extra-ordinary.

ADVERT NARRATOR

So, no matter where you come from, you can make extra-ordinary meals every time with Onga.

Yele-iiii

MESSAGE IN THE ADVERT

Have you been searching for that”Seasoning cube” that you will use to prepare an extra-ordinary meal for your husband, kids, friends, families and loved ones? Then search no further because Onga seasoning cubes is the solution to that. It is the secret to a every extraordinary meal like we saw in the advert. The four contestants- the regional chefs from different regions knew that Onga was the solution to meal, so they secretly made use of it during the contest.

MEANING OF SOME TERMS

Let’s hope she doesn’t drop the ball means you are hoping that someone doesn’t make a mistake.

THE REVIEW

I love this advert; it is very interesting to watch. The food experts where very lively in their roles and their dialogue wasn’t just conversational but well selected before putting the words into use. Also, the countenance of the contestants was also enjoyable to watch.

Moving on, I am wondering if they were trying to showcase the major tribes in Nigeria- Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa? If that was the case, well it wasn’t quite obvious safe for the woman that was on hijab. Even at that, you may wear hijab and not necessarily be an hausa. It is basically worn by muslims.

I must commend the food experts; they made the video lively.

This is an advert different from the norm. Usually, seasoning cubes advert is done in a way that out of all the contestants, only one is using that seasoning cube and the person is picked winner while the others who did not use the seasoning cube miss out in the competition. But this case is different; they were all announced winners as they were all familiar with Onga. Nice one there!

So to the major deal; does this advert have the propelling force that will make a customer hunger for Onga? Yes I must say. It can push one to buy Onga seasoning cubes.

JUST WONDERING

  • The presenter introduced other people as in the food experts, regional chefs but didn’t introduce himself; smh
  • Why did that woman put her hand in the mouth to shoosh everyone; it didn’t really make sense. Because it is a live competition and all the contestants were being watched. So, even if she had secretly used the seasoning cube, the way she put her finger to the mouth doesn’t make it secretive anymore…
  • Just wondering if there is a spelling for that “Yele-ii” sound made at the end of every Onga seasoning cube’s advert.

SOUND: No music except instrumental and it was really interesting to the ears.

LOCATION: The advert was shot in Nigeria. All the scenes were shot indoor.
