Pepsi-Cola Jamaica has announced the lucky grand prize winner of their under the cap ‘Riddim Mania’ promotion. Oshan Martin from Guys Hill, St Catherine was randomly selected as the winner of a 2020 Hyundai Venue valued at $4.6 million.
Nearly speechless and crying when she received the phone call that would alter her Christmas, the overjoyed winner who says she entered the promotion with 20 bottles of Pepsi remarked, “I’m so excited and grateful for the promotion. I wasn’t expecting to win at all and when I got the call I started to tremble and cry. Thank you to all the sponsors for making this happen.”
The 'season of winnings' came at a time when many Jamaicans have been affected financially by the COVID-19 pandemic which made having the promotion even more significant.
Ever-Gaye Style Morris, Pepsi’s Marketing Coordinator stated, “One of our aims of the promotion was to bring joy to Jamaicans during the holiday season and we hope we accomplished that. To hear the excitement in Oshan’s voice when we called her and her wide smile when she was handed the keys was definitely one of the highlights and a fantastic close to our year.
“We’d like to thank our partners National, Hyundai, Tastee, KFC, Total and Red Stripe for their participation and continuous support during the promotion. Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to give so many prizes to Jamaicans who may be down on their luck right now due to the pandemic.”
“We’d like to thank Pepsi for collaborating with us on this amazing promotion. Oshan will not only be receiving the 2020 Hyundai Venue but also a five-year warranty, two-year’s free service and five years roadside assistance,” expressed Cassia Wright, Hyundai’s Customer Relationship Officer.
