Austin Okocha, popularly known as Jay-Jay Okocha, one of the best African footballers of all time and Fehintoluwa Okegbenle, a popular Nigerian female biker, has now become ambassadors for Kwik Delivery.
At the unveiling event, which included partners among other guests, the company disclosed its plans to expand its reach into Abuja. The company’s goal is to create a more appealing environment where users can be better served.

Expressing his appeal, Okocha highlighted:
”Kwik Delivery is a game-changer for businesses and merchants in Nigeria, especially those running their businesses online. It’s my pleasure to help Kwik raise its profile in Nigeria from today. To me, it’s like throwing a fish into the river.”
