Speaking about the handover, Larry Annetts, Chief Consumer Officer: MTN SA, commented: “Afrikaans is Groot is a popular musical extravaganza that celebrates Afrikaans musical talent. MTN is pleased to be part of this initiative, and what better way is to heighten excitement about this festival than by rewarding our loyal customers who are contributing to the success of festival. We look forward to rewarding more customers at the next Afrikaans is Groot Music Festival that is scheduled to take place in Cape Town next month.”
The lucky customer, who entered the MTN Afrikaans is Groot Music Festival competition said: “This is such a dream come true, never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine winning such a massive prize. Thank you so much MTN, I hope that others will also get to experience your generosity”.
