Educating through music
In other news, Nigerian musician Yemi Alade is in Namibia. The singer is part of the delegation on a ‘megatour’ from Nigeria, scheduled from 26 to 31 March.
The tour is an initiative by the Namibian High Commission of the Namibia based in Lagos, the home affairs ministry, the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB) and the Namibia Wildlife Resort (NWR).
“The aim of the tour is to educate and position Namibia to the West African region as an authentic and pristine travel destination and to showcase Namibia’s great success in the travel and tourism industry and the sustainable management of natural resources,” said Paula Olivier, media liaison at NTB.
Alade was expected to be at the coast yesterday and today, and while there, the music star will be filming a music video.
