Trackers has been a culmination of world-class production and a global standard marketing campaign. When we heard the track for music for the first time, we knew it would be an integral part of our campaign. Our approach was not only to showcase the great work produced by M-Net but more equally feature and profile the cast, crew, and musicians that are the heartbeat of our African storytelling proposition.”
