A friend messaged me last night. This is what he said: “I was watching SuperSport and then BAM there was Minj frying dodo on TV.”
Guilty as charged! Caught on camera having a love affair with food. No shame. Typical ;).
It is exciting times in this little corner of the world. Remember I mentioned a while ago that I was involved in an ad campaign for the Philips AirFryer? Well I am pleased to announce that the ad is finally out. It was launched on September 1st on the Philips website. Can I be honest with you? I couldn’t bring myself to watch it at the office on the day. I waited all day until I got home from work, had supper, had a shower, washed my hair and grabbed my mum’s hand a bit too tightly, before I finally felt fortified enough to even take a peek – LOL!
We took over the kitchens at Posh Cafe in Mega Plaza, one bustling Friday in May. It was a long day with over 12 hours of filming, but honestly I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun, cooking, eating and having a laugh with everyone. There was dodo, chicken suya, yam and mackerel cakes, sweet potato fries and kelewele, all made healthily and with minimal oil in the AirFryer.
I had a great time working with the team. So to all the Ogilvy guys – David, Kire, Lara, Liz, Stacey, Bob, the local production team, all the staff at Posh Cafe, my friends at the vegetable stand who let us film there, and my darling cousin Mayowa who came along to help out, many many thanks! And also thanks to Patrick, Femi, Tola and Igho who popped in to enjoy some of the food and offer moral support as well.
Without further ado, may I present you the video… Enjoy! xxx
Do you have an AirFryer yet? If not, go grab one – they’re available at Game, Mega Plaza, and online at Jumia and Konga. If you do, how have you found it so far? What’s your favourite thing to make in it?
