When Malaria Hits Home by Dr. Oluyemi Olawaiye

According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) figures in 2012, the top five killers in Africa were HIV/Aids, lower respiratory tract infections, diarrheal diseases, strokes, and Malaria.  In my role as founder and president of Yeloto African Children’s Foundation, a non-profit organization named for my own children, I have made raising awareness of the ills and needs of children in Africa a central aspect of the mission of my efforts.  As I have shared before in both public and private arenas.   When I reflect on what I have seen and continue to see day to day during my vacation’s and annual charity sojourn to Nigeria, it generates great sadness in my heart to see how our country’s most valuable resource, its children, are not all provided for in a manner that ensures their optimum development and success.  What I find even more disheartening is reminiscent of a quote by entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar, who is quoted as saying, “The world’s most deadly disease is “hardening of the attitudes.”  In too many arenas, from the average citizen to the highest echelons of government there is a sense of complacency about the needs of one of the most vulnerable populations in our midst. Our children need us and they need us now.  At the risk of sounding cliché, the truth remains; the children that we are passing by begging or hawking in the streets, or those that are dying as a result of preventable illnesses are our future.  I know that something as conceptually simple as paradigm shift in thinking as well as the synergism of individuals that choose to function as change agents hold the key to turning the tide and changing the present narrative for our African children.

Jennifer Aniston makes a new friend on Emirates

Hollywood actress, director and producer Jennifer Aniston makes a return to the Emirates A380, and makes a new friend, in a new global digital and TV advertising campaign for the world’s best airline*.

Jennifer Aniston TV commercial | A380 | Emirates


The ad builds on the success of the first Emirates-Jennifer Aniston ad launched last year, a much talked-about campaign which quickly went viral.

In a similar vein to the first light-hearted TVC, the Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress brings her distinctive personality, classic style, and a touch of humour, to showcase the A380. In the ad, Jennifer befriends Cooper, a feisty young boy who she finds playing in her Private Suite in the Emirates First Class cabin, while she was freshening up in the Shower Spa. The two strike up a conversation and build rapport, as they stroll through Emirates’ Business Class cabin and Onboard Lounge. Sitting on the stairs between the lower and upper decks of the aircraft, Cooper tells Jennifer about his aspirations to become a pilot – of ‘this plane’, pointing to his model Emirates A380 aircraft. In Economy Class, Cooper is finally reunited with his surprised parents where Jennifer chooses to remain and enjoy Emirates’ ice inflight entertainment system with Cooper. The ad ends with Cooper’s mother relaxing in Jennifer’s Private Suite, having exchanged places with the Hollywood star.



Boutros Boutros, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand explained: “A year ago, when we launched our first ad featuring Jennifer Aniston, we were overwhelmed by what a social phenomenon it became. The humour resonated with audiences around the world, and the ad was viewed by millions of people, generating thousands of conversations. Fans of both Emirates and Jennifer loved her effortless charm and humour, and enjoyed a story that deviated from traditional airline advertising.


“We were overrun with requests to see Jennifer again. She has an enduring, universal appeal that is at once sophisticated, but also down to earth – a great match for our brand. This new ad perfectly captures the fun, spontaneity and glamour of flying on Emirates, and we are confident audiences will find it as memorable as the first.”

The TVC was directed by industry veteran and Oscar-nominee Bryan Buckley, who is acclaimed for his numerous Super Bowl ads. The script and creative concept was a collaboration between Buckley and Emirates’ in-house advertising team and produced in conjunction with the WPP Group.
