It is not just our culture to find good deeds and reward them but we are passionate about people who strive to do good when they don’t need to.
On Thursday 21st of March 2019, we changed the story of a young man, Ugochukwu Ibere, who was once a street hawker of ready to go sausages, as of today he now owns his own furnished, equipped and well-stocked shop (Ugochuku Ibere Store) located at 181, Bamgbose Street, Lagos Island.
Ugochukwu Ibere, who had faced his own fair share of hardship and injustice, found it in his heart to give aid to convicts being transported to Ikoyi prison, it was in his selfless act that he was spotted and his picture shared on social media drew our attention, his humanitarian service and deep level of empathy touched our hearts and we were moved to empower him for his immeasurable act of kindness.
We are confident in his prospect of being extremely successful because he has shown dedication to everything he has committed himself to.
At the launch of Mr. Ibere’s new shop, Mr. Joseph Adesewo, Regional Sales Manager, who represented Mr. Seleem Adegunwa, Managing Director of Rite Foods Limited and other members of the Rite Foods staff interacted with passersby who were humbled by Mr. Ugochukwu’s grass to grace testimony.
No other person was more satisfied than Mrs. Adenike Ajitena a Banker and a Lawyer who was responsible for first spreading the word of this Hero without a cape.

With the arrival of the month of February comes the intense feeling to show love. However, of recent, it has been discovered that showing of love does not necessarily mean giving of gifts. Sometimes, it’s the length we go to make people happy that matters. Doing the littlest thing could mean a lot. The effort might be little but it sure gladdens the heart to know someone is thinking about you.
Rite Foods Limited has thought it wise to show love in the little way they can by appreciating the efforts of those that are always on their toes to make sure there is little or no traffic jam in some areas in Lagos. Rite Foods staff took over the job of traffic wardens for few hours while they got refreshed with the Rite Foods gift packs containing Rite Foods range of products.
In addition to that, Fearless roller skaters engaged with people during traffic hours at the same location. The roller skaters gave out Fearless Energy Drinks to commuters in traffic and did a really nice job. This simple show of love put smiles on the faces of those they came in contact with.
Rite Foods Limited has shown that love is not just about romance. Sometimes, it’s about community service and they sure did a great job showcasing that. Of a truth, they have in them the proudly Nigerian spirit by being their brother’s keeper.
It is a well known fact that for businesses in Nigeria to thrive, there are factors that can choke or wither the growth of the business. These factors range from power to government policies and various economic instabilities.
Amidst all that, Rite Foods Limited incorporated in 2008, has since been one out of many Nigerian owned businesses that have proven to stand out against all odds. It is not surprising therefore, that in just few years of being in business; the company has almost overtaken giants in their line of business.
As a result of this outstanding success, the BBC crew considered Rite Foods Limited among many other African brands that has succeeded in harsh economic climates to stand out in order to manufacture products that are best qualities and internationally acceptable.
In the Interview with the Managing Director of Rite Foods Limited, Mr. Seleem Adegunwa, he pointed out two major hurdles that every Manufacturer in Nigeria would face. He said:
“Everything is a challenge. You have to produce the power [to run the plant] yourself, because you’re not on the grid”
And there is the hurdle of gaining access to markets.
Commenting about the acceptance of Nigerian Made products, he said:
“If anything, being a Nigerian-owned brand initially would almost (wanted to) become a negative, because people think that what is produced locally just can’t be as good, but what we’ve been able to do in the last 28 months is to show that no, actually you can be a proudly 100% Nigerian brand and still be able to make products that are extremely World Class”.
His position about market penetration and competing with multinational companies that are very well financed, he had this to say
“In terms of the multinationals it was a non-issue because we knew we were going to come to the table with a facility and a product that will be able to stand shoulder to shoulder, if not actually surpass what they do”.
Evidently, Rite Foods Limited has proven to be truly World Class and 100% proudly Nigerian.
A lot has changed within the Nigerian gaming landscape. The gaming industry has continued to expand, benefitting from; the large and youthful population, improving internet penetration, and increasing access to Internet-enabled devices. As a result of the opportunities available in this landscape, Rite Foods Limited and Titeboi Entertainment has decided to lead and further expand the gaming industry in Nigeria.
With the Mini “Jack of All Action” tournament, it was beyond just playing to win and more about connecting with the game, knowing your skills on the control pad and enjoying the process altogether.

The gamers played with amazing strategies, tactics and all they knew to do to win and qualify for the grand finale. In all, it was a tough one as all gamers played amazingly well with their control pads.
As the games approached the grand finale, it got tougher with lots of gamers dropping out as they could not make it to the final round. Their initial confidence failing them, one of the gamers that didn’t make it to the round said: “I can’t believe I froze and didn’t even make it to the final round, I feel so disappointed because I thought I was ready”.
Overall, the mini tournament was fun to some gamers and heartbreaking to others who didn’t qualify for the grand finale.

Video gaming in Nigeria has taken a new turn, in the last decade, compared to the early 90’s where the majority of Nigerian parents actually chastised their wards from anything gaming considering it a total waste of time. Today, in Nigeria, gaming has opened new doors of opportunity that majority of Nigerians are only recently aware of.
At the Benin tournament, one of the popular gamers commented, ‘Fearless Gaming Tournament is a good thing that has happened in Nigeria especially for gamers. Video gaming is an unexplored industry that gives room for computer programmers, storytellers and digital artists to find their purpose in creating a Nigerian oriented product, gaming should be encouraged because developed countries have made billions out of this industry’.
Rite Foods Limited understands the potential and growth of gaming in Nigeria and has therefore committed itself to supporting this growing entertaining sector. The Fearless Gaming Tournament which kicked off in July with the Ibadan Qualifiers has gradually built its momentum from one city to another, with the Benin Qualifiers hosting over 250 gamers at the Pent House Event center, opposite University of Benin.
