CELEBRATING 21 YEARS OF TRUSTCO

As part of the Group’s 21st Celebrations, Trustco sponsored the Trustco’s Star Performer, the first ever nationwide talent-search competition in Namibia. The long and incredible journey over seven months created an artistic platform for upcoming young artists and allowed them to showcase their talent to the Namibian nation and the world at large. Trustco’s main sponsorship worth more than NAD4  million made it possible for artistic expression to prevail.

This was indeed an incredible journey for the top 26 finalists who shared a single dream of joining world renowned performers in various categories such as drama, instrumental, vocal, dance, modelling and fashion design. Eight winners were selected by professional judges to represent the country on the international stage when they visited Orlando Florida, USA in December 2013. The Trustco’s Star Performer title was awarded to the overall winner, Vocal Dynamics, which is an a cappella group. The group received a fantastic cash prize of NAD250 000, proudly sponsored by Trustco.
