In the last 10 years, trends have evolved and as managers of the concert, we are always looking for ways to match that. We know people are busy and do not have time to pick cash and look for the tickets; a reason as to why we felt it important to get a partner to offer cashless and easy modes of payment.”

Ogong concluded, “As a bank, we are very cognizant of the new trends and aim to transcend people’s needs. We understand the need for convenience while providing secure measures through approved credentials and qualities that the Flexipay payment platform provides.
