Digicel customers are first in line to win hundreds of tickets to the highly anticipated ‘Long Walk to Freedom’ Buju Banton concert, plus cash and other prizes, starting Monday until March 8, 2019.

Four lucky Digicel customers will each win a VIP Experience at the concert and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime ‘meet and greet’ backstage with the ‘Gargamel’ himself, along with access to the exclusive VIP section, plus $100,000 cash, the company announced in a news release Monday.

Customers can also win runner-up prizes of VIP tickets to the long-awaited concert and exclusive access to the ‘Digicel Red Zone’ – what the company touts as a fun-filled area in the grandstand featuring cool giveaways and prizes all night long.

Every week until March 8, Digicel prepaid, postpaid and Home Fibre & TV customers can win daily prizes of general grandstand and bleacher tickets. Weekly winners will walk away with VIP tickets, grandstand tickets and 28-day Nuff Social plans.

And customers hardly have to do anything differently in order to give themselves a chance to win these prizes and join tens of thousands of Jamaicans who will be flocking to the National Stadium on March 16.

Simply top up or buy a Prepaid plan worth $500 or more; activate or upgrade to a Freedom Postpaid plan; buy a Postpaid add-on; activate a home fibre bundle or fibre Internet plan; pay your bill in full and on time; buy an LTE smartphone; purchase and stream a d’Music plan; or switch your number to Digicel.

“With so many ways to win, our customers can look forward to being part of history when they get to officially welcome Buju home, catch up, reminisce and rock to the songs they love,” said Monique McLeod, marketing director for Digicel.

As fans in the general section rock to the rhythms of Buju and his musical friends, they’ll also get to try out the Digicel Experience Centre that the company said will feature the very latest in smart devices for homes and personal use. The Centre will also include a d’Music streaming experience for patrons to enjoy an endless string of Buju’s extensive catalogue long after the concert has ended. Before everyone sees the Gargamel live, Digicel customers get to stream his playlists in the d’Music app at their heart’s content and ‘build a vibe’ for the big night on March 16.

“Buju Banton has been a cornerstone in Jamaican dancehall and reggae. His music has touched and inspired many people at home and abroad. His legendary messages, uplifting melodies and easy-going attitude have endeared him to a growing audience of fans. His crowning recognition as a Grammy award-winning artiste places Buju in the category of Jamaica’s greats,” McLeod said.
