SANYU FM HOT MIC SEARCH UNVEILS TOP 50 SEMI-FINALISTS
By Mulengera Reporter
Tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia’s Sanyu FM Hot Mic Search has moved to the next stage after judges announced the top 50 semi finalists who will now battle it out for 20 slots ahead of the contest’s final.
Station Programs Director Roger Mugisha says the 50 semi-finalists were from a pool of over 1,300 entries received for the search. It is from these that the station will pick the final 10, but these will have to beat off competition in the next stage.
Mugisha explained that contestants will now be required to use their social media platforms to promote Sanyu FM and “the number of likes contributes 60 per cent of their total votes while 40 per cent is from our judges.”
“Judges have been reduced to 40 per cent; your 60 per cent will come from your networks around you to support you on our pages. Everyone will be assigned a number, we will know you as ABC No 49,” Mugisha told the contestants. “Go tell your friends to tell their friends to support you on our pages. We have between now and 15 July.”
He also urged them to be available all times whenever they are called upon to show up. “Availability is very important, please don’t enter into this contest when you know you have another project and tomorrow after winning this you are somewhere else.”
He explained that the talent search is free of charge and that no one should approach them for a bribe to help them reach the final stage. The winner of ‘Hot mic search’ will take home cash prize worth Shs3m and also get a presenter job with a two year contract offer at Sanyu FM.
