Buli wins for kids

Nasik Swami
Thursday, August 17, 2017

LAST night belonged to Miss Cure Kids Fiji Buli Wainiqolo as she won the best talent award in the Queen contestants' category at the 2017 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival in Suva last night.

Miss Wainiqolo performed a flawless cabaret medley of Gloria Gaynor's hit song I will survive and Nat King Cole's favourite classic L.O.V.E.

She dedicated her performance to children suffering from rheumatic heart disease in the country.

Speaking after her win, the 18-year-old said she was happy and looked forward to the culmination of the festival — having had the opportunity to spread her advocacy message.

She said children battling rheumatic heart diseases were survivors and encouraged them to continue to tell their narrative.

Sixteen contestants battled it out on stage last night with various messages of climate change preservation and personal achievements.
