Africa: Hyundai Motors Nigeria Lifts Africa's Film, TV Industry At Awards


Hyundai Motors Nigeria has donated two new Hyundai cars to support Africa's film and TV industry at the just ended 2014 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).

The vehicles which include Hyundai Veloster three-door sports car and iX35 crossover were given out respectively to Messrs Michelle Bello for emerging winner in the 'Trailblazer' category of the award and Pete Edochie, who was awarded 'Industry Merit Award.'

This is the first time the Korean automaker country representative is supporting AMVCA since the show was inaugurated in 2013.

"We are proud to be associated with Africa's distinguished movie stars and the film and TV industry," Hyundai Motors affirmed.

The company said the African movie industry has contributed immensely to the socio-cultural development and diversity of the African continent.

Speaking at a post event meet, Jatin Nadkarni, Head, Sales and Marketing, Hyundai Motors Nigeria, commended the AMVCA initiative, describing it as yet another incentive to acknowledge African homogeneous socio-cultural heritage, which are divided into great number of ethnic cultures.

"We at Hyundai realize the need to enrich the process of education through the development of African culture and we appreciate the significance of cultural diversity," he said.

Hyundai Nigeria has lately been in the vanguard of CSR savvy companies, aiming to reinvent African music and arts.
