Over 300,000 young Nigerians gathered at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos, as well as other locations around the state, to participate in the World Record breaking Teeth brushing challenge. The challenge sponsored by leading oral care brand, Close Up toothpaste, in partnership with Lagos State government, Nigerian Dental Association (NDA), HEIT Solutions, Vas2Net & Core Media, saw various school students take part in brushing their teeth at the same time at different locations.

Speaking before the kick-off, Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola, said that the challenge was a representation of how people ought to take care of their bodies, with oral care being a priority.
“The Lagos State government supports a comprehensive healthcare system. A simple oral hygiene routine, such as brushing twice daily, restricts the number of visits to the dentist. Unfortunately, many people do not take care of their teeth and mouth because they consider them small among the body parts that should be taken care of. There is little consideration that this part of the body is where all the food that we eat in order to nourish the rest of our body passes through,” Fashola said.
Mr. Mabo Thabe, Managing Director, Unilever Nigeria, makers of Close Up toothpaste and other household brands, who spoke at the event, said that Close Up was supporting the challenge as part of itscommitment to promoting and reiterating a healthy oral care culture for Nigerians.
According to him, “At Unilever, our mission is to meet the everyday needs of our consumers through great brands that help people feel good, look good and get more out of life. We have constantly provided quality goods for 90 years in Nigeria, and we are poised to create even more value for our consumers by stayingclose to them, understanding their needs and meeting those needs through consistent innovation. A healthy and good looking Nigeria is a great Nigeria.”

Project Lead, World breaking Teeth brushing challenge, and Founder, HEIT Solutions, Dr. Lawal Bakare, who also spoke at the event said that the Teeth brushing challenge was spread across communities in Lagos which include Epe, Ikorodu, Agbara, Ikeja and Surulere, with hundreds of volunteers from the Nigerian Dental Association (NDA), Schools, and other agencies, who were present at the different locations across the state to ensure that the counting was properly monitored.
In preparation for the Challenge, over 300 secondary school teachers went through a special Teacher’s Alignment Training Session. The teachers were informed of the World Record standards for counting the number of students brushing in each school, the designed model for the tooth brushing as well as the waste recycling element to the attempt.
Close Up Brand Manager, Mr. Dexter Adeola, thanked Nigerians for their unflinching support towards making the event a huge success. “At the beginning, we urged Nigerians to show their support for this challenge by brushing twice. I have been overwhelmed by the turn out and the number of people who told me that they brushed twice today already and will still do so later. This is one of the reasons Close Uploves Naija. The warmth and love of the people cannot be quantified. Thank you Nigeria! Today, together we have made history!” he concluded.
The Close Up Teeth brushing challenge would be the latest World Record on Teeth brushing, putting Nigeria in the Guinness Book of World Records. India previously held the title where an event brought together 177,003 people to brush their teeth at the same time.

Itel Holds Massive Dance and Rap Competition Themed Itel 3x Challenge5

On Tuesday 21st of June 2022, itel Ghana held a rap and dance competition for its fans at Circle Tip toe lane. The Challenge themed “itel 3x Challenge” was held to increase awareness on their new and highly innovative smartphone release the itel P38Series. In attendance were more than 3,000 people in the hub of the mobile phone market. The event was graced by influential celebrities such as DKB, Akuapem Poloo, Tulenkey, E-Flex and the itel brand ambassador Kuami Eugene.

The winners received many amazing prizes ranging across all of itel’s product categories which included TVs, P38 Smartphones, itel headset, itel Power banks, itel earbuds etc.

The event which showcased many talent was arranged to highlight the main selling post for the itel P38 series which is its 3times faster charging function.  It’s refreshing to see that itel understands the necessity of having a fully charged phone and doing so in no time at all. If you’ve ever been stranded due to a dead battery; you live in an area where you’re never able to charge your phone up to 50% due to power outage, or your phone goes off less than an hour into a game on every single occasion, it is time to move over to a brand that understands the situation and offers you more talk and play time.

You no longer must wait for countless hours to see your phone fully charged. With the itel P38 series, itel’s first offering of fast-charging smartphones, you can get a full 100% charge in 150 minutes- that’s only 2½ hours. This is supported by the 3x fast-charge feature that offers 3 times the speed of other regular phones, most of which take as much as 7½ hours to fully charge.

The itel P38 has a 15W fast charge technology feature that gives you triple fast charge action. With only 10 minutes of charging, you’re guaranteed up to 3 hours of WhatsApp call.  Just when you think itel has done enough, it beats its own record every single time. It is the only model within its price range that can deliver such a feat. Now you can talk more, play more, and enjoy more phone time with superior technology designed just for you.

According to the marketing communication Manager Mr. Michael Tuekpe, Itel would like to congratulate all participants on who performed at the “itel 3X challenge” and promises more of such event to engage fans and loyal users in the near future.
