Equally too, Ejire Performer and Okiki Wasiu both gave Osogbo a great standing while Adisa Muyideen and Twinzobia Twins from Ibadan convinced the judges that they have what it takes for to clinch  semi-final slots.

The Marketing Director, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Walter Drenth had during the course of the auditions, expressed satisfaction over the huge turn-out of Fuji lovers and artistes. While explaining the rationale behind Goldberg’s Fuji to Bam initiative, he said, “Goldberg is a quality lager beer that celebrates consumers and their traditional values. Fuji music enjoys huge followership across Nigeria which has led the brand to provide  Fuji t’o Bam as one of the platforms to further engage and connect with our consumers.”

He also added that the programme was a worthwhile event. “The Goldberg brand believes that many parts of the country are endowed with talents in music yet to be discovered; and I believe that as the talent hunt contest moves to other locations, Fuji to Bam will discover more Fuji talents that will become great music icons like KWAM1, Pasuma, Saidi Osupa and others”.

I never thought that I would win anything here; but Goldberg Fuji t’o Bam has made me a happy man. I came here to support my friend and this is an extra benefit. From now on, it is Goldberg all the way.
