Let's Settle This Ep. 1: Nigerian Drinks

Are you ready to finally settle some long-standing arguments?

The debates are endless. Every faction thinks theirs is the popular choice. How will we ever know which thing reigns supreme?

Welcome to "Let's Settle This", a brand new game that'll be hosted here every week on Vocal by me your host, Jide Okonjo. The aim of the game is simple:

Every episode, you'll see a list of highly-debated things, ideas, or people. Your job is to choose: which one reigns supreme.

Immediately you cast and submit your vote, it will be counted and you'll be shown the winner. Each person can vote once per unique device. There is no limit to how many times you can view the results so feel free to check back at any time to see if your favorite choice is still in the lead or if it's falling behind.

Alright, without further ado, let's jump into episode 1: Nigerian Drinks.

Choice 1: Grand Malt VS Beta Malt.

You will find both at every wedding, birthday, church event, local kiosk, supermarket, mall. Wherever they sell drinks, there Grand and Beta Malt are.

So the question becomes: which one reigns supreme?

Choice 2: La Casera VS Smoov

La Casera has been around for a long time now, but Smoov Chapman is the new kid on the block.

Which would you rather, the still as fresh La Casera or the new cool, Smoov.

Choice 3: 7UP VS Sprite.

This is a battle as old as time at this point. They are both clear. Both come in green bottles. Both fizzy.

But which one reigns supreme?

Choice 4: Fanta VS Mirinda

They're both Orange-flavored. Both orange color. Both come in orange packaging.

Yet both are not the same. One still reigns supreme.

Which is it?

Choice 5: Amstel Malta VS Malta Guiness

If there is no shortage of one thing in Nigeria, it's malt. In addition to the options in number 1, there are also these two equally as refreshing Malt beverages: Malta Guiness and Amstel Malta.

Both rich in taste. Both creamy.

But which one reigns supreme?

Choice 6: Coca-Cola VS Pepsi

Don't act surprised, you definitely knew it was coming!

These two drinks are classic. Both dark. Both refreshing.

But which one reigns supreme?

Choice 7: Schweppes VS Mountain Dew

It's a hot day, both are available in the fridge chilled and ready to go.

Which one are you picking?

Choice 8: Ribena VS Capri Sonne

Finally, to wrap up the list, we have to throw it back to two Nigerian classics.

The sweet Blackcurranty taste of Ribena, or the orange goodness of Capri-Sonne.

Which one reigns supreme?


You've voted. You've seen the results. You now know which one reigns supreme. Is it your choice? Are you shocked by the outcome?

Well then get your friends to come and vote. Get your family members, your church members. Share it on your Facebook and Whatsapp and Twitter and everywhere. Let's keep the fun going. It's a fun conversation at the least isn't it?
