Addressing journalists at a press briefing yesterday in Windhoek, Standard Bank Namibia's communications manager Isack Hamata announced that until the close of business today ticket prices have been reduced to the following: general: N$100 and golden circle N$200.
Ticket prices will revert to N$150 and N$350 respectively after 17:00 today. VIP tickets remain the same at N$750.
“Let us all go and have some fun at the a cappella festival while also contributing to the struggle for better housing conditions for our people,” said Hamata.
Performers include VMSIX, Broken Metronomes, Vox Vitae, Soweto Gospel Choir, The Soil, Collective Singers and Focus A Cappella. Media personality Paul Da Prince will be the host of the event.
“The headline acts for the show are The Soweto Gospel Choir and The Soil from South Africa,” announced Hamata.
Hamata added that Standard Bank Namibia is calling on all Namibians to rally behind this effort to help the neediest members of our society.
He disclosed that through this initiative 200 houses have been built across the country, thanks to the generous support of corporate entities as well as Standard Bank staff. “Our target is to start building a thousand houses every year and we can only do this with the support from the public and corporate Namibia.
“Living in shacks strips people of their dignity. It is a human right to live in a decent housing structure.
“That is one of the biggest social challenges that the Buy-a-Brick Initiative wants to address since its establishment in 2014,” said Hamata.
