Kisakye  Elijah finally wins Vodafone’s WhatsApp Mania 20 million recording deal.


Earlier in our Vodafone series we introduced WhatsApp mania launch  by Vodafone,

Like we discussed in our Article titled ‘Vodafone's  WhatsApp Mania:Sing, Whatsapp & Win 20 million UGX on your Android!’, the competition was about talent search rather than a music competition which made it possible for more contestants to show interest. The competition had more than 140 entrants and enormously attracted a number of individuals to try out their luck in the bid to win the 20m recording deal.

Furthermore, the competition organizers aimed at giving the winner a firm foundation to succeed in their career. This fact was affirmed after Elijah the winner received a recording deal for four songs at Talent Africa Studios and a Video Shoot by Sasha Vybz at Deuces entertainment group just like it was earlier on promised.

It is worth mentioning that the journey to his victory didn’t come that easy right from the stages where more than 150 entrants underwent full scrutiny and sieving which incidentally reduced  them to 14 finalists. After the battle amongst the 14 at Jazzville Bugolobi, the list dropped to 6 contestants till competitors namely: Leonard Muka, Charlene Kasumba and the one Elijah Kisakye made their final battle. This didn’t make nit any easier for Elijah to a point of a 2 point margin between him and Cherlene.

This was visible through some sections of the crowd disagreeing with the final ruling of the judges since in their opinion. They believed Charlene was the winner due to her song’s high Vocal Range and Stage Performance.

However, the judges among whom was Moses Serugo a seasoned Arts Critique, Ken Daniels Kayongo a renowned Music Producer, Rukh Shana Namuyimbwa a news anchor and Peter Miles a dance hall Artist gave the final credibility to Elijah Kisakye making him the Overall Winner of the 2016 Vodafone’s WhatsApp Mania Music Competition.

Congratulations Elijah Kisakye and Thanks to Vodafone for the Opportunity.
