The Awarding Photo Natif took
On September 5th, a group of 13 men and 13 ladies under MSU including Natif travelled to Kasese, the home district of Mount Rwenzori, located on the border of Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and it is here that Anthony Natif took a photo with the Nile Special bottle, taking it to great heights.
In his words, he said; “At MSU, we are all about enjoying and showcasing the beauty that Uganda has to offer. And it does have a lot of gems! To that end, we aren’t shy about showing off brands we consider true representations of the Ugandan experience. Nile Special is a quintessential Ugandan brand, loved and enjoyed by millions. It also happens to be the most popular beer in the club.
We take pride in it. When Mountain Slayers Uganda organized a Rwenzori expedition, it was a perfect opportunity for us to showcase Nile Special against the backdrop of the highest peak of the most beautiful mountain not only in Uganda but in Africa. We were careful to ensure the bottle was nicely wrapped and tucked deep inside my daypack so it wouldn’t easily break or the contents freeze throughout the 5 days of climbing that it took to get to Margherita. It worked and we were thrilled to share that picture with the world!”
