Kings on the move

Saturday, July 05, 2014

THE Hibiscus Festival King contestants made their first public appearance at Damodar City's food court, in Laucala Bay, during lunch hour yesterday.

The 14 contestants used the opportunity to introduce themselves, their sponsors and the issues they would be advocating during the festival.

King contestant co-ordinator George Nacewa said the people of Suva should look forward to more public appearances by the contestants in the weeks leading up to the festival.

"We have 14 vibrant young men coming out to talk about climate change," Mr Nacewa said.

"They are not just putting words out there but more action too. They have come in with a mindset that there is work that needs to be done.

"It's not all about the glamour and lights but what Hibiscus Festival can offer to them and what they can do for the Hibiscus Festival."

The Kings' next public appearance will be during the Kaila! Star Search quarter-finals at Suva's Civic Centre next weekend.

Mr Nacewa said the final 14 King contestants were chosen from a long list of applicants.

"We received a good response from our roadshows and through social media during our contestant drive. The hardest process was vetting the applicants and finalising the final 14 young men that will eventually compete for the Hibiscus Festival King category.

"We are confident with the selection we have made and come the festival, I believe they all will deliver and make Suva proud."
