Bangalore: Levista Coffee has associated with Radio Mirchi for the upcoming “Mirchi Music Awards South 2020” to be held on 28th Feb. 2020 at Anna University Auditorium, Chennai.
Mr. S. Shriram, Vice President, Levista Coffee said, “From the days of listening to AM frequencies in the 80s and 90s, FM in the new Millennium and on online Music stations like Gaana over the past few years, one thing that hasn’t changed at all is that Coffee and Music go hand in hand. Radio (and Online Stations) have been the preferred channels to listen to new songs as well as retro and these days, most people do not even download music on their devices, rather listen on the go. We feel proud and honored to have become the Exclusive Beverage Partner for MMA 2020 by associating ourselves with the Number One Radio Station in India for this prestigious event.”
Commenting on the association, Manoj Mathan, Regional Director (South) at Radio Mirchi, said “This year is the 10th edition of the Mirchi Music Awards South, the biggest Music Awards of its kind in South India. Every year we look forward to associating with strong brands like Levista and it is an absolute pleasure to be doing this association at such a prestigious milestone for the Mirchi Music Awards South. We hope that this association will stay strong for all future editions of Mirchi Music Awards South.”
“Many people start their day with Coffee and along with it runs Music in the background and data has it to prove that Radio Mirchi and Gaana are the preferred medium for most listeners across India for almost all languages, so we believe Coffee is best suited with radio, music and Radio Mirchi”, quips Shriram
