Nike, Mr Price, Vodacom and others win big at #GenNext2019 awards

Nike was once again awarded as the Uber Cool Overall winner at the 15th Sunday Times Gen Next Awards, held in Sandton.

The 2019 Sunday Times Generation Next Brand awards took place at Sandton Convention Centre on Thursday, 13th June 2019.  The awards recognize the coolest brands in South Africa in all industries from tech, motoring, personalities and more.

 

 

The overall coolest brand was again scooped by Nike, Bonang Matheba was awarded coolest influencer, Vodacom scooped coolest Telecomms provider, Superbalist took the coolest online store and Mr Price won the coolest clothing store.

It is the fifth year in succession that Nike has maintained the top spot in the survey conducted by HDI Youth Consultancy, which polls more than 7 000 South African youths between the ages of eight and 23 on what they find on-trend and aspirational.

Nike was also awarded as the Coolest Clothing Brand, the Coolest Footwear Brand, and continues to hold the Coolest Brand Slogan.

 

Fourteen new categories were introduced this year, including Coolest Online Fashion Store (Superbalist), Coolest Campaign Targeted at Youth (LoveLife), Coolest Food Delivery App (Mr D Food), Coolest Entertainment Channel (Cartoon Network Dstv 301), Coolest Gaming Console (PlayStation 4 Pro), along with two personal brand categories: Coolest Politician (Nelson Mandela — current president Cyril Ramaphosa placed second), and Coolest Online Influencer (Bonang Matheba).
