Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL), a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group, has proudly announced its latest venture, Windhoek Draught Live - an annual music event brought to you by the Original Premium Draught. The inaugural event will feature American R&B vocal group, Boyz II Men - a popular band from the nineties best known for emotional ballads and acappella harmonies. This new venture follows the successful music concert in 2014 when the premium brand hosted Nigerian act, P-Square in Windhoek for their first visit to the picturesque capital of Namibia.
“In light of the successful P-Square concert that was held in September 2014, we are excited to bring another unforgettable, For Real experience to world-class people with world-class entertainment, enjoying our world-class beer,” says Elize van Kradenburg, Senior Brand Manager Windhoek Draught at NBL. “We believe in real experiences and we want to share these experiences with the people who love our beer. Nothing can be more real than seeing your favourite band live on stage. 2015 thus marks the launch of our annual music event, Windhoek Draught Live”, said van Kradenburg.
Boyz II Men’s hit ‘End of the Road’ set a new record for longevity, staying at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 weeks, breaking the decades-old record held by Elvis Presley. As of 2015, their song ‘One Sweet Day’ still holds the all-time record with 16 weeks at the top of the Hot 100. The trio continue to perform worldwide with their most recent studio album, Collide released in October 2014.
