On a Facebook post the producer, writer and creative director shared a sneak preview of a recent photo shoot for the campaign. 

Others who have pledged include the 2019 Miss Namibia finalists who will be the female personalities to own the ring as “ring ladies”. 

Prominent personalities that will be participating, have begun their 3 month training for the upcoming knock-out tournaments and hope to bring about change to their nation. 

The fight will broadcast live on NBC and all proceeds will be given to charity.

The young creative was featured on the Africa's '30 under 30' list for 2019. The 28-year-old expresses how grateful and honoured he is to receive the accolade as he is the only Namibian featured on the list. 

“I'm glad I could change the narrative of the people of Rundu because usually, people there aren't considered. We are side-lined a lot. That's just the reality of it. I aim to stop this. I aim to do even more; this is just the beginning for me,” Munana said in an interview with Netumbo Nekoma.

Munana will be launching a website, where he shares exclusive video content and more. 

The boxing matches will include three one-minute rounds at Windhoek Country Club. Tickets are sold at web tickets for N$250, N$10,000 a table, and N$50,000 for corporates who wish to brand a personality’s trunk (s).
