Stakes are now high for the MTC Knockout project meant to find a lasting solution to the teething housing challenges in Nambia.
This week some of the eminent personalities billed to perform at the event said they are all systems go as companies endorse them.
Standard Bank Corporate Communications Practitioner Isack Hamata who is billed to perform as as Victor Juice Boy said received sponsorship from Top Score.
Hamata expressed that he cannot wait to give revelers a taste of his music exploits.
“I’m not a singer by nature however, for the cause we have no choice but to do what we can. Luckily papers are being provided to us for preparations. Therefore, the morale is high and we are looking forward to the main event to showcase what we can do,” Hamata said.
GIPF Corporate Communications Practitioner, Robyn Nakaambo also received sponsorship from Namibia National Reinsurance Corporation (NamibRe).
Nakaambo is set to perform as Lioness and says she could not wait for her moment of fame as a musician.
“I come from a place where houses are not in good shape, I mean houses are not up to standard. For me its not about performing, but creating opportunities for Namibians who do not have proper shelter. We want to dignify fellow Namibians lives and bring them to a level that they feel as Namibians. Moreover, every Namibian should enjoy the fruits of this country. All we need is proper shelter for our fellow Namibians,” she mentioned.
“I love this initiative because its fixed to my soul. Due to the current pandemic a lot of people have found themselves homeless whether because of salary cuts, or entirely lost jobs,” added Nakaambo.
Personalities sponsored so far include Walvis Bay businessman JJD who will perform as Ou Stakes, philanthropist Mavis Braga and Radio personality Che Ulenga. Namdia, Namibia Housing Enterprise (NHE) are some of the companies that have responded to the cause of fighting homelessness so far.
The MTC Knockout project is set for 3 October 2020.
