Welcoming associate sponsors DStv, and Cadbury expands and builds on our 360 experience for consumers.”
Also commenting on their sponsorship of Nickfest 2019, Martin Mabutho, Chief Customer Officer, Multichoice Nigeria Limited said, “We, at MultiChoice Nigeria, are proud to be one of the sponsors of the third edition of NickFest 2019.
“We place a premium on family values and the integral role children play within that ecosystem and this is evident in some of the content on both DStv and GOtv; these are specially designed to bring families together and foster unity amongst them.
“So, being one of the sponsors of this event is very much an extension of who we are as a company and what we stand for.”
Similarly, the Cadbury Category Brand Manager, Tolulope Olaoye, added: “Bournvita is very excited to be part of the Nickfest Carnival. Bournvita is a rich cocoa beverage that nourishes the children and the entire family and will be fully present to nourish the family bonding time throughout the 2 days. Lots of fun, delicious Bournvita and amazing stuff awaits kids at the NickFest carnival”.
According to the organisers, families can anticipate performances by Nickelodeon’s superstar characters: SpongeBob Square Pants; Adventure Bay’s intrepid pups, Paw Patrol; The Rise of the Teenage Mutant Turtles, performing for the first time in Nigeria; and the famous genies Shimmer and Shine.
“Audiences will also be treated to amazing performances from some of the country’s biggest performers while they get to watch their favourite personalities get splashed with slime as part of The Celebrity Slime Challenge, in an effort to raise awareness and funds for children’s support through NGO projects in Nigeria. Tickets are still on sale for N5000,” they noted.
