Windhoek-Namibia Mobile Telecommunications Company (MTC) is set to launch a music festival dubbed 081Every1Fest in celebration of its 100 percent population coverage.

The 081EveryFest which is set for August 11 will feature Nigerian Davido, South African Heavy K and Busiswa, Zimbabwean Jah Prayzah and Nigerian Runtown. The regional artist will share the stage with Namibian multi awarded and musical kingpin Gazza, Nama 2018 winner Kalux, high-spirited and lively Oteya, rhythmically gifted 2018 Best Hip Hop winner KP Illest, feisty Sally aka “Boss Madam”, velvety voiced Adora, the incredible trio of PDK, DJ sensations Afroberries and 4x4 Too Much Power.

In a statement MTC’s Ekandjo said the show is a first of its kind in Namibia and is expected to thrill the audience.

 “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 Songz 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 Ekandjo.

“081Every1Fest is essentially a charity event, as all ticket sales will be donated to charity, in particular the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia to fight the high shortage of houses for our people.

While we are celebrating, we must also remember to give back, and I therefore encourage all Namibians to come out in their numbers, fill up the stadium to max capacity because your N$25 will go straight to charity.”

He said public members in addition to buying a concert ticket may also buy an additional ticket called the “donation ticket” from Webtickets at any Pick Pay outlets, if they wish to donate to the charitable cause.

The donation tickets are ranging between N$20 and N$10 000.

According to MTC, tickets will be available at Web Tickets at any Pick n Pay outlet or online at www.webtickets.com.na and one person will be limited to 10 tickets only at a time. No tickets will be sold at the concert venue. 

MTC also assured the public that security would be very tight at the event and emphasized that strict security protocols will be in place to ensure that concertgoers have peace of mind during the concert.

Apart from  MTC, the 081EVERY1Fest is supported by; Air Namibia, Standard Bank in the gold category, The Namibian, BPI technologies, NDTC, CSS Tactical Security Namibia, Mpepo Time Link, Otesa Civil Engineering, Worldmaster, Sure Ritz Travel and My Namibia My Pride, without whom  this celebration would not have been possible
