The campaign tagline , One Life/Live Them®, which
assumes its grammatical accident, identifies that
today’s consumers are not defined by one talent or skill,
but are multi-faceted and should be applauded for their
many passions. Rémy Martin’s One Life/Live Them
campaign encourages consumers to explore and
celebrate all their talents. It is a call to live richer, larger
lives, to expand the horizon and seize all the wonderful
opportunities that life can offer, beyond the one-
dimensional paths that former generations could have



Some people are born great, while others stumble into
greatness. Zainab Balogun had every indication of one born
with greatness from birth and she’s done pretty well in
fulfilling that potential.
Born and raised in London, Zainab is an actress, model and
television presenter who has been featured in several
international campaigns for different brands. She obtained a
Bachelor of Law degree (LLB) from the University of Kent.
She also studied music in secondary school and eventually
went on to join the school choir; she later formed an R&B
girl group with two friends.
After being scouted by Premier Models Management at an
early age of 16, she began professional modeling and has
gone on to successfully diversify into other endeavors. Such
is the innate ability she possesses and displays in her multi-
faceted lifestyle. You only get one life, after all, so why not
live them?
After obtaining her law degree, she began to appear in
shows such as BBC One’s Material Girl, Bollywood movie
Cocktail (2012), and The Charlatans. She went on to feature
on blockbuster Hollywood movie “Batman: The Dark Knight
Rises”. She is currently a co-host and producer of The Spot

accomplished event M.C and she hosts events for Etisalat,

There are some who love what they do for a living because
they make money from it. There’s another class of people
who make money from doing what they naturally love. The
latter can well be said about Kunle Oshodi-Glover Jr who is
fast building an empire for himself as an entertainment
voice extraordinaire.
A match made in heaven, it seems, as Shody’s zodiac (born
December 7) is the very symbol the Rémy Martin brand
embodies: The Centaur; a multi-talented being who has
revealed the many talents of men and mythical heroes,
enabling them to get the most out of life. Not just your
average voice-over artiste or hype-man, Kunle packs all the
raw strength drawn from his 6ft frame into his smooth
voice to thrill and deliver a delightful experience to listeners
and audiences world-over every single time.
Born to the late Kunle Oshodi-Glover (a former director of
Press and Public Relations in the Lagos State Ministry of
Information and Strategy) Kunle Jr has honed his trade
expertly over the years and deservedly earned his moniker:
“Shody The Turn-up King”. He has hosted weddings and
events in countries like Turkey, Tanzania, South Africa; was
the host of the recent Lagos Countdown 2015, and is also
the official host / hype-man for all Rémy Martin Nigeria
events. He’s also Runtown’s official hype-man.
A man of many faces; Shody holds a Bachelor’s degree in
Political Science from the University of Lagos, and is also a
proficient content creator and radio script writer. A
seasoned radio producer / voice-over artiste / entrepreneur,
he also runs his own production outfit called KSG
Productions. Why be one thing when you can be many,
A protégé of veteran media guru Olisa Adibua, Shody
currently works as an Assistant Head of Production with
Megalectrics Group (The Beat 99.9 FM, Naija 102.7 FM and
Classic 97.3 FM) and is responsible for the production of
quite a number of radio magazine shows as well as
stingers/sweepers at these radio stations.

Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana RAPPER/ COMIC / LAWYER /


Who says you could never be successful being a seasoned
professional and a literally incurable humor merchant all at
once? People holding such school of thought have obviously
never met a remarkable character like Folarin Falana.
One would never imagine that an Attorney at Law could ever
be so engrossed in humor, talk more make a living off it.
But ‘Falz’ does it so effortlessly well; you’d actually wonder
if it does require any sort of effort at all. Popularly referred
to as ‘Falz The Bahdguy’, he is an interesting persona that
embodies what his peers represent fully these days: a
multidimensional existence.
Rémy Martin recognizes this generation of people that
understand that real fulfillment comes from realizing all of
their talents. We salute them. Tagged the Slash Generation,
these individuals live a life between slashes – work / play /
hobby / desires – and are not defined by one thing that they
do, but all that they do. They meet new people, go to new
places, try new things and live many lives.
After graduating with LLB Honors and getting called to the
Bar, Falz has gone on to exploit his multiple personas to the
fullest. A record label executive, his unique and hilarious
style has carved a niche for him as one of Nigeria’s most
entertaining Rap artistes presently. Famed for his rib-
cracking skits on social media, Falz also thrives as a
Compere and a Comedian. And yes, there’s more; he also
recently debuted as an actor starring in a Sitcom series
titled ‘Jenifa’s Diaries’. What more could one man be, right?
Well, for Falz it’s all just about one thing actually – living
his one life to the fullest and achieving all his potentials.
After all, he is what he is: a Rémy Martin man, and a
complete ‘Bahdguy’.

Keep a look out for some of the other individuals that
Rémy Martin recognizes and admire them over the
coming months.
Why be one thing when you can be many. You’ve only
got one life. Live them.
