Social media came crushing down with heated emotions when news broke out that Nigerian sensation, Davido, had been double booked, with many questioning the chances of him making it to the highly anticipated MTC 081Every1Fest musical show.
With the crooner supposed to be in the United States on the same dates when he is supposed to be touching ground zero on the land of the brave.
Will this spoil the expectations and fun? Namibian revelers and die-hard fans want to know.
Event organiser and leading mobile operator, MTC, came out to clear things out with an oozing sense of confidence that after all, everything is under control.
Said Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer at MTC, Tim Ekandjo, “There is no fear that he will not make it to Namibia, he is definitely coming, you saw his video drop. I don’t want to speak on his behalf, he will speak to the Namibians himself. It’s all systems on the go. He is confirmed for a show.”
Ekandjo said they were expecting the Banana Fall on you hit-maker to Tweet soon about the show but in the meantime, MTC has announced that Coca-Cola has come on board to support the festival having bought two donation tickets to the tune of N$20 000.
It’s the first company to buy in the festival and the amount will be part and parcel of proceeds meant for charity for the Buy-a-Brick campaign, by Standard Bank Namibia, meant to close the housing gap.
Tickets are going for N$25 while only 200 VIP tickets have been put out for sale at N$1 000 each and any one is welcome to purchase a donation ticket which does not grant entrance.
Ekandjo said over 400 guards will be on the watch at the Sam Nujoma stadium in Katutura for maximum security on top of Nampol and City Police.
Each musician is anticipated to bring their full band for Namibia’s biggest musical show since 2015 which will see performances by the likes of 4X4 Too Much Power, Oteya, Gazza, Adora, PDK, Sally Boss Madam among others.
