WITH only two days left until this year's KAILA! Star Search semi-finals, the finalists are ready to give their best.
The competition is a lead-up to the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival. Kaila! is part of the entertainment program during the week long festival from August 15 to 23.
Given the demand from the public, it has grown into an event of its own, which culminates at the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival.
Hibiscus Events Group public relations manager Lice Movono-Rova said they realised the need to provide opportunities for young people and were grateful to everyone who supported volunteer musicians at nurturing young entertainers.
"The preliminary rounds began in June with preparations beginning even further back in April.
"The Hibiscus Events Group with the support of the Fiji Times Ltd (Kaila!) stages the event over three months to give young people a more in-depth nurturing experience while at the same time giving them much needed long-term public visibility for the purpose of ensuring potential career opportunities from the public exposure."
