Kampala – MTN Uganda has, on Friday, July 2, revived the MTN CallerTunez Awards that will see artistes earn from their music and other content, every month for the duration of the promotion due to end in Dec 2021.
Lucky customers who actively download the MTN CallerTunez will also walk away with cash prizes (MTN MoMo), and smartphones.
These monthly awards come in at a time when concerts and other outdoor entertainment have been suspended as a preventive measure against the spread of covid 19, significantly affecting income of artistes and other owners of audio content.
With the new monthly MTN CallerTunez Awards, lucky artistes with the highest number of downloads will win UGX 2,000,000 per artiste while those who own content e.g., content providers with the most improved downloads in a month, will win UGX 1,000,000. Every month, 20 lucky customers that download or actively use MTN CallerTunez will randomly be chosen to win UGX 50,000 each (through MTN Mobile Money) and smart phones.
“The MTN CallerTunez Awards are meant to recognize and reward both the artistes that create the content used as caller tunes as well as the customers who download and use the tunes,” explained Somdev Sen, the MTN Uganda Chief Marketing Officer. “We are happy to provide our artistes with an alternative source of income especially during this time when the pandemic has disrupted their work”.
