Adenike Adebola, Marketing Director Guinness Nigeria Plc said, “Thierry Henry is a great example of someone with Made of Black spirit. He is best known for his time at Premier League club, Arsenal where he achieved a number of accolades. But his early days there were challenging. No goals in his first eight games left people questioning the record transfer fee. But he had the confidence in his ability and was determined to show people what he was made of. Henry carved his own path to bring his creative flair to the game, he worked hard to demonstrate and his skill and ability; ultimately changing the way the game was played in England and showing that he was truly Made of More.”
Guinness embodies the Made of Black mind set. It is an iconic beer that has the darkest liquid, but the brightest flavours. A beer that has lived in the hearts and minds of millions in Africa and across the world for over 250 years but has always had the authenticity, boldness and vision to do things differently.
