March 22, 2022

Nelson Mandela will be entering the metaverse!

According to reports, The Nelson Mandela Family’s Long Walk to Freedom brand announced that the project, “A Long Walk to Meta: Mandelaverse” will be a part of the metaverse and that it will feature NFT art collections.

The project will also have a holographic gala that is set to take place in Los Angeles in the summer. This release will be a part of the partnership between the digital product studio Tinywins and the Phoenix James Art Haus called Range Media. 

Mandela’s daughter, Princess Zenani Mandela Dlamini said in a statement, “My father was a great champion of education and believed it was the most powerful weapon we could use to change the world. Web 3.0 holds the promise of a decentralized community-driven paradigm shift that will allow a new generation to democratize and restore the power of creators.” 

She continued, “It is here that we will amplify African voices, connect a global community through storytelling, and uphold the legacy, principles, and values of a revolutionary man.” 

The first of the four NFTs is set to launch in May and the proceeds will go to the Mandela Education Program.
