    I'm not trying to diss but, why is anyone paying Sasha P to endorse anything? Does she even still release music? It's funny that whenever I see her name anywhere, it's accompanied by superlatives such as "foremost" or "best" or "top". Maybe it's because there really aren't any other female rappers in Nigeria making noise right now? I don't know. But I'm hard-pressed to name one Sasha P song off the top of my head right now. It must be nice to get endorsement deals when you're not even popular.

    1. Winston, I hear you but I think it speaks to Sasha’s brand strength. If you are not releasing music the product that corporate brands want to see as an indication of your brand strength, yet you can still convince brands to sign you, then you must have something else. Speaking of something else, she is a fashion designer whose designs are actually gaining momentum, she is a lawyer in a society that highly values education and her brand appeals goes beyond youths to a 30-50year old demographic. Would I, for example, book a Jovago hotel based on her advertising, “yes.” Will I book one if Ice Prince advertises, “no.” I trust that she knows more of what she is saying and is credible based on the factors mentioned. Ice Prince has more of a “I get paid to say these things” feel to him. So, she has a cross over look, is articulate and can sell brand products, especially brands that are not so technologically/youth driven like hotels.
