Kings want support

SUPPORT them even after the Kings crowning today, says Kings co-ordinator George Nacewa.

While the 2014 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival King will be crowned at 5pm today, Mr Nacewa says the journey for all King contestants will continue.

"We ask for the public to continue supporting the brothers even after the crowning because we have two important projects which we want to see through," Mr Nacewa said.

These are mangrove planting in Serua and the Old Peoples Home in the Hart, Valelevu.

"Its been a long time in the Hibiscus Festival since we've had young men who are not only putting words out there on the stage but also action. We ask the corporate bodies and businesses to support us in our two projects."

He said the journey of the King contestants had been fulfilling as they were using the festival to raise relevant issues.

"They've become really close and the general feeling coming towards the last day is that although they are sad, at the same time they are happy because they used this platform to voice out their issues.

"I think it's really hard to single out the best contender for the crown because they all have done well throughout the week.

"For us, the crown is only a bonus because at the end of the day, they are all winners."

The Kings crowning and special awards will begin at 5pm on the main stage.
