Riky Rick does not seem too fazed about promoting his signature Russian Bear and fans are rather shocked by this. You would think that getting a deal like this would have excited Riky enough to get him to actually do some groundwork so that he could ensure it was a success.
It has been four years since Riky partnered with the vodka brand and some don’t even know this partnership exists. Riky had his face put on some of the brand's flavoured vodkas but has done little to nothing to get the word out there.
A fan recently posted a picture of some of the bottles with Riky’s face on them with great excitement. Shame, this fan clearly did not know that this situation was old news.
“Here's New Product From @RussianBearSA Fellow Russian Bear Lovers. @rikyrickworld S'yabonga.”
Having tagged Riky in the post, the rapper responded, letting the fan know that this is not something new, its actually pretty old news.
“This isn't new bro, this was 4 years ago... Classic Bottle.”
The fan responded letting Riky know that he did less than an average job at marketing it if he wasn’t aware of the product. When your fans don’t know about a product that your face is on, you doing something wrong, baba.
“Then you flopped pushing it. Literally it seems as no one knows of it.”
Riky, however, did not seem at all fazed about the fan's comment.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Nomuzi 'Moozlie' Mabena has just signed a deal with well-known alcohol brand Cruz Vodka. Signing ambassadorship and endorsement deals are a huge part of celebs' lives as they pride having side incomes aside from their craft.
Celebrities have been making packets off brand deals for the longest time. The bigger the brand, the more green you get, and it also doesn’t hurt to help your career.
Moozlie just signed a deal with Cruz and is extremely excited about the new partnership, hoping it will be a long one. Alcohol brands are one of the best brands to sign with as an artist.
