Ighalo, who expressed excitement for the deal, said he had always been a huge fan of Dettol, which he described as “one of the most popular and reputable brands globally.
“I’m very excited about the new Dettol offering because nothing feels more refreshing after a game, than the minty freshness that comes after a bath with the new Dettol Cool Soap,” he added.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, which has affected the entire world, Ighalo said it is particularly important now, more than ever for the world to be more health and hygiene conscious.
