“The MTN Group’s presence in the African metaverse will be known as altMTN. altMTN allows us to further support our ambition to lead digital platforms and support African innovation, and will, over time feature livevents, shopping, gaming and learning,” says Bernice Samuels, Executive Group Marketing at MTN Group.
