Musical crème- de la -crème to rock MTC 081Every1 Fest

Dubbed the biggest music festival ever, since 2015, the MTC 081every1 Festival, put up together by the country’s biggest entertainment bankroller, will pull Namibia and Africa’s musical giants right into the yard of Katutura on the 11th of August this year. 

The line up is intoxicating and will certainly blow the minds of revelers and consists of Nigerian crooner, Davido, Zimbabwe’s rising star and Watora Mari hit-maker, Jah Prayzah, Heavy K and Lahla hit-maker, Busiswa all the way from Mzansi.

Back home, a collage of chart smashing household properties to thrill fans include Nama award scooping chanter Kalux, the spirited PDK, 2018 best hip-hop winner KP Illest, the glamorous Oteya, musical gargantuan Gazza and the Afroberries muses.

The list is topped by lyrical giants 4X4 Too Much power, best female of the year award winner Sally “Boss Madam” and the adorable Adora.

MTC christened the upcoming festival with a media engagement at upmarket Hilton where the musicians expressed excitement to be a part of this memorable fiesta.

“This is an unbelievable line-up; in fact, it is crazy but we will deliver it successfully. We have not done such a big show since 2015 when we had the Trey Songs Concert, and we know that Namibians have been waiting for the next treat.”

“I am excited that we are taking this fest to Katutura and making it accessible to everybody for only N$25 making this the cheapest show in the history of African shows. We do not want anybody to miss out,” said MTC’s Tim Ekandjo.

Tickets will be available at Web Tickets at any Pick n Pay outlet or online at www.webtickets.com.na while one person will be limited to ten tickets at a time, the MTC team has said.

All the proceeds of the festival are to go towards the Buy-a-Brick initiative which has been spearheaded by Standard Bank.

“I strongly believe that MTC’s efforts and contributions to the Buy-a-Brick initiative will also inspire more Namibians to join in on the fight against housing shortage. And what better way to join the fight than through a music festival which will see some of the best talent on our continent,” said Standard Bank’s marketing manager Sindano Nekundi.
