The Achimota Mall in Accra will, tomorrow (October 6), host the grand finale of Vodafone Ghana’s talent contest, Vodafone Icons.
This year’s edition, dubbed the “Rep Ur Hood” edition, will see 8 finalists, scouted from across the country, battle it out for a mouthwatering ₵100,000 ultimate prize package. Consisting Evance, Serwaa, Verony, Bogo Blay, King Garo, Richy, Tina, and A.A Smart, the finalists, while they admit to customary jitters that precede evens of this magnitude, are confident of clinching the ultimate prize.
Speaking to the press during an interaction on Thursday morning, ahead of the finale, the finalists also iterate that even before the Saturday showdown, consider themselves winners, considering what a life-changing springboard the competition has already proven.
Daniel Asiedu,External Communications Manager at Vodafone, divulged the motivation behind this year’s format, as enabling a more intimate musical experience between the contestants and patrons: “…from start to end it’s always been an outdoor event and we hold this live shows and auditions within their communities – where they come from – so that their fans can easily connect with them start voting for them,” he said.
Voting ends today, October 5, and contestants can be voted for using the Vodafone short code *4353#.
