Afrikaans is Groot

  • Overview

    AIG is a popular musical extravaganza that celebrates Afrikaans musical talent. MTN SA recently entered into a content distribution agreement with Coleske Artists - the rights holders of the AIG brand.

    MTN has identified AIG as an important property for sponsorship, in line with its Music, Lifestyle and Digital strategy. AIG has - over the last few years - grown into a hugely popular multi-disciplinary brand with CD's, DVD's, two sold-out music concerts annually and a wide social media presence.

    MTN has always been a proud and well-known supporter of South African music. The AIG sponsorship platform allows MTN to continue being the champion that showcases the best of SA musical talent.

    Over the last three years, MTN has invested substantially to improve its network coverage and quality and these investments are beginning to bear fruits. With considerably reduced calls and faster internet download speeds, MTN is now well positioned to give multitudes of AIG and music fans in general a distinctive customer experience.

    MTN heightens the excitement about this festival by rewarding and brightening the lives of its loyal customers - this is achieved by bringing them closer to their Afrikaans music heroes.
