MTN and Banky W competition winners return from their exciting trip to Dubai



Lagos, Nigeria, October 6, 2017: Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), in partnership with MTN Musicplus and singer Banky W, recently hosted 10 winners of the ‘#BankyWDubaiGiveaway’ competition for an all-expense-paid trip in Dubai.

Joined by Beat FM presenter, Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi, the winners explored a variety of experiences in Dubai over the four-day trip. While around the city, the group shopped at the city’s famed Gold Souq and The Dubai Mall; took on the sand dunes on a desert safari; and enjoyed adrenaline-pumping rides and attractions at IMG Worlds of Adventure, the world’s largest indoor themed entertainment destination.

Upon his return to Nigeria with the group, Banky W said: “It’s always great to visit Dubai, whether it’s filming for the Wedding Party movies, or a trip like this that gives us the chance to experience the best the city has to offer. I’m grateful to Dubai Tourism, MTN and Beat FM for making this competition possible and am glad to have spent these past few days with my fans in one of the best destinations in the world.”

Speaking about her trip, Omolola Olukanni, one of the competition winners, said: “It was an honour to win and have my mom accompany me. Now we want to come back to Dubai again soon! My mother and I are already planning our next trip with the rest of the family. It’s quite impressive what Dubai has to offer for people of all demographics.”
