KFC Namibia 50/50 prize was won by Local artists Sensei and Vikta juice boy.
The prize included a performance and a privilege to record a song with the multi-award-winning artist, Gazza.
The concept of the show was derived from the song ‘50/50’ by the late South African Kwaito star, Mandoza.
The show has the same concept trailed in Botswana and Lesotho, each country showcasing their respective music talent with an established local artist as a mentor.
After a night of mesmerising performances, two singing sensations Sensei and Vikta Juice boy won the singing battle against six other participants.
The show took place earlier last month; however, the prizes were announced this week by KFC brand manager Henriette Crouse.

“This song is the official track for KFC Namibia by Namibians for Namibians to love and play over and over and over again,” said Crouse.
“The energy was amazing and the artists brought their A-game and showed Namibians that we have raw talent fit enough to blow off any roof,” Crouse stated in the press release.
