About 9JA Energy Drink.

Like almost everything in life, it all starts with a simple idea … Well, we are not the first to launch an energy drink, but it should not be another drink among many, so we wanted to give it a very special touch. Our intention is to create a unique, authentic and distinctive brand. which reflects the pride,
strength and elegance of the Nigerian people. This is how 9JA energy drink is born from values inspired by cultural diversity and progress.

LET’S BE HONEST…
OBVIOUSLY, IT CAN’T MAKE YOU FLY.
DEFINITELY YOU WILL NOT TURN INTO A BEAST.
AND YOU PROBABLY WON’T BECOME A ROCK STAR.
SO WHAT? STAY THE WAY YOU ARE AND JUST GIVE IT A TRY!
ONE OF TWO THINGS CAN HAPPEN, EITHER YOU LIKE IT OR YOU LOVE IT.

About the label

our idea is to consider the label as a canvas for the illustrator. The art must be related or inspired by the drink itself as well as the values of the brand. The three best illustrative works will be considered as part of the official launch at the market, in the following versions; classic and two more works that reflect this values: diversity and progress. The elements that the artist must consider in his creative process are:

  1. The official logo of the 9ja energy drink brand.
  2. The Slim Alu can packaging – 250ml.
  3. The proposals that include the correlation of the design with a flavor (free to propose) will be valued.

The work of the selected participants will be published on the drink label, on the 9JA energy drink website and on its social media channels. Your name or signature will be printed on each 9JA energy drink can with your artwork, during the limited edition.
