MTC commits to supporting fashion and music
03 July 2020 | Art and Entertainment
MTC earlier this week made history when it announced its biggest sponsorship of N$67.8 million to Namibian entities in sports, arts and culture.
In the arts fraternity, MTC shared that it has partnered with Windhoek Fashion Week, and will continue with its annual 081Music festival. A press release from the telecommunications giant highlighted that Windhoek Fashion Week, which will now be known as the MTC Windhoek Fashion Week, received an investment of N$3.6 million to turn the event into the best organised in Africa, taking Namibian fashion to a whole new level.
“Namibians who enjoy a good music show can now look forward to the annual 081Music Fest for the next three years that will see local, continental and international artistd entertain Namibian fans with memorable music,” read the statement.
The event received N$9.6 million, with MTC declaring its love for music – despite bringing its partnership with the Namibian Annual Music Awards to an end after 10 years.
MTC's chief human capital and corporate affairs officer Tim Ekandjo explained that MTC has successfully negotiated naming rights to all these events and looks forward to working with these event organisers for the next three years.
“The sponsorship will be effective from 1 October,” he said.
