About us

At NOVELPOTTA Y&R, we are wired differently. A guy that prefers to watch movies with the sounds off, read only novels with missing pages  and  a girl whose first crush was a cartoon character, these are just a few of our traits. There is something common to all of us though; we live and breathe our brands. Our passion drives us to always exceed the conventional. When we handle a brand, we become the factory floor manager, the sales representative, the consumer, we become the brand. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure competition “dies a natural death”.

Our Story

Usual became boring, so, in June 2001, we decided to flip the script and NOVELPOTTA was born. In 2002, we established a relationship with Y&R (Young and Rubicam), a global advertising network, that saw us become NOVELPOTTA Y&R, a frontline advertising agency in Nigeria.

Only having the sky as limit and fuelled by our quest of new business sensations, in 2008 we officially plotted the NOVELPOTTA YR flag in Douala where we have been constantly living exciting and successful experiences with new brands in Cameroon and across Central & West Africa.
