Now that the Nigerian superstar has confirmed that he will indeed be in Namibia, tjil saw it fitting to profile Mindscape Events, the company entrusted to make this show a success.
Company director Gordon Jay shared that Mindscape Events was established in 2013. “Our approach from the onset has always been to create unique experiences and lasting memories for event attendees. Our mission is to match your brief and surpass your expectations,” he said.
Jay mentioned that they offer various services within the events and communications space. Mindscape Events' service delivery is two-tiered. “We have the consultancy department which handles strategy, planning, management, production design and other event planning-related services. The production department handles all the event technical support services, staging, sound and lighting,” he said.
Asked what makes them the best partner for events, Jay emphasised that they are passionate and dedicated to excellence in all projects and engagements they undertake.
Their mantra as an organisation is “we create mind-blowing experiences”, which further accentuates their vision as an organisation. “We are constantly aiming to exceed expectations in all our dealings.”
On the Burna Boy show, Jay said Mindscape Events is in a privileged position to be doing what they enjoy. He added that their main goal is to make sure they give Namibians an amazing value-for-money show. “I would say it's going pretty well. I'm pleased to say that we have a very dedicated team working tirelessly to ensure the event is a resounding success.
“I'm grateful to Play Network Africa for entrusting us with this project. They are an international brand with a credible track record and I believe this event will be the first of many which will assist in presenting Namibian entertainment to the international entertainment scene,” Jay said.
Mindscape Events urges every music and entertainment fan to attend the event, stating that the Namibian leg of Burna Boy's African Giant Tour will be an experience like none other. “I don't want to pre-empt some of the ideas we have lined up for the event, but I'll inspire your confidence by saying this: There is no way we will commit to bring Burna Boy, the African giant, all the way to Namibia for a mediocre event. It will have to be gigantic,” he promised.
On safety measures, Mindscape Events acknowledged that it's vital for them and all stakeholders involved to ensure safety and security at the event. “Added to the private security personnel, we will also ensure to have police and emergency services to curb any nuisance that may arise.”
Jay listed the 2019 Heal Our Land concert as one of their previous successful events. “It was a huge honour to be a part of the team tasked with organising an event that seeks to uplift our society and I'm grateful to the executive committee of the Heal Our Land concert for including Mindscape Events. We look forward to Heal Our Land 2020.”
Tickets to the Burna Boy show are available at Webtickets and Pick n Pay stores countrywide.
