A couple of weeks ago, Vodafone Ghana started airing and running their ads for this years edition of Vodafone Icons. This time around, they chose to go back to the “Rep Ur Hood” edition which saw the likes of Ryan Korsah winning its maiden edition.
Auditions were slated to kick off in Tamale, Kumasi, Dansoman, Nima and Tema respectively. This year’s edition seems to be quite different from all other editions and all other reality shows. All contestants selected in their locations during the auditions are going to perform in their localities. Then final winners from each of the localities will then move a step further to be on the final show where the winner will be announced.
After careful scrutiny, the judges for this years edition, Appietus, Mz Naa and Samini, selected the best 8 from the localities. One person who caught my attention is one amazing singer/guitarist who auditioned at Dansoman by name Eijay. Her touch on the guitars and her soothing voice on the mic definitely won the hearts of the attendees and even the auditionees. MzNaa has to stop her halfway through her audition.
As expected, she made it through and she’s now part of the final 8 contestants selected from Dansoman. Viewers and fans are expected to vote for their respective reps or artistes in the competition.
After conducting my research on the beautiful and powerful singer, I came to a realization that Eijay is just a 21year old girl born Augustina Frimpong and a student at the University Of Energy and Natural Resources. I chanced upon several videos of her on her personal Facebook page singing her heart out. (Check out some of the videos below)
I would definitely urge you to vote for Eijay because I strongly believe she has the zeal and power to take the crown from the local stages to the main show.
To vote for Eijay, dial *4353#.
