'It's been a long walk from Mariental'

11 October 2019 | Art and Entertainment

As part of her NAMA 2019 winnings, Lize Ehlers and a partner will be the lucky winners of a fully-paid trip to Thailand courtesy of NAMAs sponsor Trip Travel Namibia.

The travel agency on Tuesday this week honoured their debut NAMAs sponsorship to the 2019 NAMA Artist of the Year.

Ehlers, who gave a stunning performance at this year's NAMAs dedicated to ending of gender-based violence, walked away with the Best House, Best Female and the big award, Artist of the Year, at the event in Swakopmund. Receiving her travelling prize at the event this week, the Mariental-born philanthropist and socially conscious artist could not hide her excitement, saying the prize came at a perfect time, an opportunity she and her husband cannot wait to experience.

“This is a fantastic addition to the NAMAs that will surely give artists a different experience.

“What a beautiful prize to give someone memories instead of receiving something material, I am indeed excited and cannot wait to get our feet on the waters of the Thailand beaches.

“It has been a long walk from Mariental,” said Ehlers. Also speaking at the event, Naukushe Kapofi from Trip Travel said that they were delighted to be on board as sponsors.

“Artist of the Year is a big one and it was an honour for Trip Travel to have come on board.

“We at Trip Travel are in the business of creating experience and memories and that is why we came on board,” she emphasised when handing over the prize to Ehlers and her partner.

The prize is packaged with return flight tickets to Thailand, airport transfer, three-star accommodation for seven nights, and meals at a cost to be fully absorbed by Trip Travel.

Speaking on behalf of MTC, corporate affairs manager John Ekongo congratulated Ehlers on her win, and re-iterated MTC's commitment to making sure that deserving winners fully optimise their prizes.

Elhers also is expected to perform at the MTC Knockout Project scheduled for this weekend at the Windhoek Country Club and Casino.

The MTC Knockout Project will see some of Namibia's top entertainers and prominent personalities trading leather for a good cause to raise proceeds for gender-based violence.
