Windhoek, 10 October 2018 – The #letsgotoNWR challenge with the Matongo Family received an overwhelming response from the public with a combined 14 782 views by close of competition last week Friday. Since the initiative was launched at the beginning of September, the innovative challenge encouraged the public to create a new dance to the Matongo Family’s new single titled ‘Let’s Go’ featuring Maszanga. The challenge created such a buzz on social media which encouraged the announcement of two voucher winners instead of the initial one voucher that Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) had provided. Media personalities, children and the Namibian public at large participated in showcasing their talent.
Matongo Family expressed their gratitude towards the public for responding positively towards their combined initiative with NWR. The group also indicated that with their 20th Anniversary show on 23 November 2018, they would be launching their new initiative which will uplift the community in the coming weeks.
The winners for the prize were, Ms Grace Keramen, a Namibian based in Canada that came in at the last minute and generated over 3000 views in just one day while the second winner was Dj Max-T Tjiundje from NBC Omurari FM who had 699 views. Dj Max-T opted to give his voucher away to one of his listeners as a way of thanking them for their support towards him.
Mr Mufaro Njabulo Nesongano, NWR corporate communications and online media manager, was very excited with the outcome of the initiative. “NWR decided to team up with the Matongo Family because of our belief in brands that have stood the test of time. Just like them, we recently celebrated our 20th anniversary in the tourism industry. We, therefore, thought it was befitting to support them with this innovative initiative of theirs. As NWR, we look forward to hosting the winners”.
