According to The Dogg, 29 September will be the first-of-its kind to set such a high benchmark to allow Namibians to support local in their numbers and embrace the stories told through music.
“It is an invitation to celebrate unity through diversity, the same as different notes that can create rhythms and harmonies to further rejoice individualism,” he said.
The Dogg further pointed out that a soccer charity cup will be held on the day of the event where teams will compete against each other and create a build-up towards the performance that evening. He added that the 29 September charity cup will donate 15% of its proceeds to the San community through the University of Namibia's Foundation, as well as the orphans and those children that have lost parents due to HIV/Aids as part of Mshasho Trust.
“We look forward to hosting this tournament with former pro-footballers and getting to know the fans and corporates family side of life. We would like to acknowledge the endorsement of Mr Ricardo Manetti and the simultaneous celebration of the World Cup”, he stated.
At the same occasion, The Dogg urged all corporate companies and individual groups that would like to participate and be part of charity cup initiatives, to follow suit by registering for 7-a-side soccer teams through Poiyah Media, Mshasho's official public relations agency, or sponsor towards the event. Founder of Poiyah Media, Ilke Akwenye, further added that this event is a milestone for the industry at large and that Mshasho has contributed much to the economy. “Poiyah Media alongside Mshasho will cater for ten SMEs and allow them to register a stand. This once again will allow our start-ups to gain access to over 12 000 members of the public and create business for them. We urge them to apply through Poiyah Media via social media. The selection of SMEs will be based on the criteria set in application forms.”
NBC was declared as the official television and radio partner and the event saw the signing of the smart partnership with Nico Mwiya (NBC's manager for new business and research - commercial services), who represented the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation.
