National Bank of Malawi (NBM) Plc has concluded the month-long ‘Greatness at 59 Trivia contest’ with 20 people winning K100, 000 each.
The Bank organized the contest to celebrate the nation’s independence, while also promoting NBM’s ‘Feel The Greatness’ music video.
The trivia contest which was hosted on the Bank’s Facebook page, required participants to answer a series of questions related to the ‘Feel the Greatness’ song video (posted on the Bank’s YouTube channel). This ran for the entire month of July.
NBM Marketing and Corporate Affairs Manager, Akossa Hiwa said they are happy with the engagement and increase in traffic on both the NBM plc Facebook and YouTube pages.
“The Greatness at 59 Trivia contest successfully engaged the audience, showcasing the National Bank of Malawi’s commitment to promoting local talent and celebrating Malawian culture. The contest brought excitement and participation from the Bank’s Facebook community, fostering a sense of pride and unity among the participants,” said Hiwa.
One of the customers Propane Kaundo hailed the Bank for the initiative.
“It is a nice initiative as it provides an opportunity for us customers to engage with the Bank. Even though I wasn’t lucky and didn’t win, I enjoyed the moment as it enhanced my knowledge of things about the country. I am looking forward to the next contest and wish NBM plc will organize this frequently,” said Kaundo.
