This December, Showmax, the renowned and popular VoD platform, has camped in Nairobi. OK, that may be confusing, being that Showmax is always here, serving us our favourite entertainment content either through our mobile devices or TV screens.
So let me take it again. Here goes: This December, in addition to providing its customers with visual entertainment through their various devices, Showmax will be on the ground, with its representatives hosting various social events targeted at its existing and potential customers.
And here are the events:
On Saturday December 15, 2018 Showmax will be the title sponsor of the MJXCosplay Tournament to beheld at Garden City Mall along Thika Road. You can purchase entry tickets here and get free popcorn at the entrance of Century IMAX, Garden City Mall with Showmax.
(TOP: Participants during a previous Cosplay / Jabber contest in Nairobi).
Cosplay fans attending the tournament are requested to come dressed as their favourite superhero, listen in on Q&As and panels, and look out for the Showmax brand ambassadors dressed as characters from the Handmaid’s Tale, Indiana Jones and Kill Bill– all currently available for streaming on Showmax. There are also comic book sales and more.
For dedicated Cosplay fans, there will be two Cosplay tournaments taking place on the day – the Cosplay Community Kenya Tournament and the advanced Cosplay Runway Tournament – with cash prizes up for grabs. So remember to register before the deadline to avoid missing out.
Fans should also lookout for a screening of the first two episodes of the hilarious sci-fi series Future Man. Called “the perfect comedy/science-fiction hybrid” by Den of Geek, this hit series is now streaming first and only on Showmax in Africa.
