From Ariya Repete that scouts for local talents in the indigenous music field to Isedowo that supports local artisans, whom I believe are the custodian of art, Goldberg Lager Beer places culture above everything else. It fosters progress amongst the Yoruba people”.
“Receiving the news of renewal had me excited, especially because there are yet so many stories to be told, much history to unearth, and most importantly, the celebration of the Nigerian people and culture. I am delighted to be on this trek as one of the culture influencers.”
