“As a fun-loving supporter of T&T talent and culture, we are thrilled to be part of Carnival this year. We love the excitement, talent, dancing and getting together with everyone in the streets as we dance to the beat of our local artistes.,” commented John Delves, CEO of Digicel T&T.
In addition to exclusive content, subscribers to Digicel’s d’Music streaming app will gain access to more exclusive music content, this time from brand ambassador, Machel Montano, cheerfully known as “Dr. Fete”. Machel will drop his new beats for 2018 right there in the d’Music app for Digicel customers to download and listen at their heart’s content. As they do, there’ll be opportunities for every Digicel customer to win event tickets, Tribe costumes, Snapchat spectacles and tickets to Machel Mondays.
“Nowadays, everybody wants to play mas while they keep abreast of the excitement taking place around them and elsewhere. Only a truly digital connection can make it happen and we are very excited to be able to use these apps to deliver this amazing experience to our customers,” Delves cheered.
This year, Tribe masqueraders will be in for cool LTE plans to stay connected on the road. They’ll also get amazing handset offers and affordable roaming packages. With 123 Unlimited calling promotion just in time for carnival, every Prepaid customer can talk for as long as they want for one low rate per call - $1 for Digicel to Digicel calls; $2 for calls to other local networks; or, $3 to call the US and Canada, UK landlines, India and Digicel Caribbean mobiles.
