Johannesburg, 08 November 2023: OMODA is thrilled to announce its exclusive partnership as the official vehicle sponsor for Mr South Africa. This landmark collaboration marks a significant milestone of the Mr South Africa event, as it welcomes its very first vehicle sponsor in its storied history.

Mr South Africa is a premier male ambassadorship program, dedicated to fostering positive male role models.

Tony Liu, Executive Deputy General Manager at OMODA SA, highlights, “The partnership between OMODA and Mr South Africa perfectly aligns with OMODA’s design language of ‘Art in Motion’. In our eyes, art holds just as much significance as technology and innovation. Fashion seamlessly aligns with our core brand values, and this partnership is the outcome of two like-minded brands coming together. 

As part of this exciting collaboration, the Top 10 Finalists of Mr South Africa will experience the stylish and cutting-edge intelligent technology of OMODA vehicles during the finals week.  Elevating the prestige of the competition,  the winner of Mr South Africa 2023 will enjoy exclusive use of an OMODA C5 throughout their year-long reign.

Liu continues, “OMODA and Mr South Africa share remarkable similarities in that they both appeal to individuals seeking a platform for self-expression through fashion and design. OMODA’s customers express this through their purchase of an OMODA, while Mr South Africa participants and supporters represent self-expression on a broader stage, embodying qualities like confidence, charisma, and individuality.” 

“Both groups share a common thread of embracing innovation, artistry, and a forward-thinking mindset, making this partnership a natural fit for like-minded individuals seeking to make a statement, whether through their choice of vehicle or their quest to become a male ambassador of positive change,” concludes Liu.

JP Robberts, CEO of Mr South Africa, expresses his enthusiasm, saying, “This groundbreaking vehicle partnership not only marks a first for Mr South Africa, but also for male competitions in South Africa. We are thrilled to welcome the OMODA brand to our extended family.”

Renowned for its commitment to quality, style, and safety, OMODA will showcase the all-new limited edition OMODA C5 GT at the event.
