LotusFM’s efforts to uplift communities unearthed talent through its What’s Your Talent initiative which came to a brilliant end on Saturday, 1 September, after 5 weeks of exciting entertainment.

 

The Phoenix Plaza in Durban was filled to capacity during a nail biting final where Kwazulu Natal’s finest talent was showcased.

 

 

17 year old Mahendren Michael walked away with the title as well as prizes including R12 000 cash and a 3 month contract with LotusFM which will allow Michael to perform at some of LotusFM’s outside broadcasts across Kwazulu Natal.

He was an obvious crowd pleaser as the audience roared in joy to the announcement of his name as overall winner.

 

“I am happy that he won.  I knew that it would be him from his first audition,” said LotusFM’s Lendel Moonsamy.

 

Hot on his heels was second runner-up, “Zeph Squad”, a group consisting of Fahim Abraham, Yasim Naicker and Mustafa Tulsi.  Third runners-up were Stringin Moodley and Nathan who make up the group “Rising Voices”.

 

The Durban-born winner was thankful to the radio station for making his dream come true and that he would donate some of his prize money to his church and buy musical instruments with the rest.

 

“I was stunned, firstly by the talent that Phoenix has and even more taken aback by the hundreds of people who lined up almost two hours before the show, cheering and routing for their favorite contestants,” said LotusFM Marketing Manager, Donne Henry, “it was quite evident that this community initiative has taken the North Coast by storm, and LotusFM will defiantly look into making this an annual event.”
