Mbarara town was painted yellow last weekend as MTN Uganda crowned its three-day regional expo.
As it celebrates its 20 years of existence in the country, MTN Uganda has been throwing massive parties dubbed the ‘MTN@20 regional expo’ in various towns across the country.
The three-day events are headlined by charity events, cycling races and energetic concerts among other activities.
Val Oketcho, the Manager, Corporate Communications said that the concert was a befitting end to the week-long activities to celebrate MTN’s 20 year’s anniversary in Uganda.
“We chose to celebrate with all our customers in Mbarara at this music concert where entertainment was provided by Mbarara’s home-grown talent and iconic music artists from Kampala.
This allowed us to connect deeply with our fans, because music is a passion point for our customers and a vehicle through which entertainment, fun and key messaging is delivered. We will replicate this experience at all our upcoming expos in Hoima, Arua and Mbale.”
