On the day of the raffle draw we screamed at the top of our lungs like we won a 50 million US Dollar Jackpot when my name was called; Of course, this is nothing short of a jackpot. My wife lost her voice for a whole day from the scream.
The Afrozons Dubai Soundoff team is simply amazing for this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Dubai in a way that many will never know. The transparency of how it all went is something to covet.
We look forward to meeting the wonderful people who made this happen for me and my queen. This is us re-living our Honeymoon all thanks to you guys. We also look forward to being a part of all the sumptuous activities lined up during the Soundoff.
It is more remarkable bearing in mind that my birthday is 7th March, within the Soundoff activity. This tops it as the best birthday gift ever.
The Soundoff is a brilliant showcase of Dubai to the world as a preferred tourist destination. The magic and beauty that Dubai represents go without saying as it is almost everyone’s dream to experience Dubai.
From our hearts, we say a big Thank you for this glorious adventure.”
