JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 14 March 2020 – Sandton City Shopping Centre came to life in a big way at the Samsung Galaxy Studio this past weekend. Hip hop superstar, Cassper Nyovest attracted throngs of fans to launch the incredible Galaxy S20 at a purpose-built Galaxy Studio. To add to the excitement, popular influencers and content creators captivated those wanting to learn how to harness the power of the Galaxy S20.
The event went into overdrive when Cassper took to stage to perform an electric set of songs. His entrance into the studio arena was captured live and in crystal clarity, with the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 100x zoom. With the Galaxy S20’s Space Zoom technology, even when you are far away, you can zoom in close. You can use up to 30X zoom on the Galaxy S20 and 20+, or step-up to the S20 Ultra’s revolutionary folded lenses with 10x lossless zoom for 100x Space Zoom. The performance enthralled the fans, who were able to clearly enjoy the performance, even through the crowd. Additionally, Samsung gave away Samsung 65-inch Q90 TV’s valued at R45,000* to customers that bought the Galaxy S20 and entered the competition.
Lightning Strikes Twice
Last weekend’s competition draws revealed a twist nobody expected. Husband and wife Antonios Hatiras and Daniella Pisanti-Hatiras both decided to purchase a Galaxy S20 and enter into the TV draw. As lifelong Galaxy fans, the couple purchased their devices and then waited for hours to be in the lucky draw, armed with two draw tickets. Their patience was rewarded. They won the awesome Q90 TV. And then, proving that lightning can strike twice, they won another Q90 TV with their second ticket. Remarkably, they have been on a winning streak in other ways.
“My wife and I have always loved Samsung and we’re also clearly very lucky – doubly lucky. Even my wife is pregnant with twins,” said Mr. Hatiras, as they celebrated their amazing wins.
There will be more TV’s waiting to be won – one at Gateway Shopping Centre on 21 March and Canal Walk Shopping Centre 28 March. The live draws for all venues will be at 2pm.
A Touch of Class
The Galaxy Studios featured masterclasses and demos to learn about the Galaxy S20’s cutting-edge cameras and their ability to enhance photography and content-creation skills. The interactive classes were conducted by well known influencers such as Austin Malema Sarah Langa, Chef NTI (TBC) and Tik Tok influencers, Witney Ramabulana and Robbie & Chane.
“It was a day to remember. The Galaxy S20 and its pioneering features have become an instant hit with South Africans. The Galaxy Studios were designed to dynamically showcase the groundbreaking features, specifically on the cameras, in a captivating and memorable way. The energy at the studios and the overwhelmingly positive reaction was truly inspiring,“ said Cambridge Mokanyane, Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung South Africa.
