The quiz will be live and interactive on a video-conferencing platform (Zoom), and will be international in nature and open to all nationalities, age and gender.

According to Mobin Beg, head of Nexus Novel, “The quiz is aimed at helping residents of Oman to update their general awareness and knowledge of current affairs and use the lockdown days in a productive manner. All are invited to take part in this enlivening event for which exciting prizes are up for grabs. Our philosophy is to ring in ‘edutainment’ events for all age groups. It promises to be as exciting and rewarding as ever. So, it is time to put on your thinking cap.”

The quiz will be hosted by celebrated quizmaster Murli Pillai who is no stranger to Oman. He was a resident of Muscat from 1999 to 2019.
