Three local acts showcased their talents on the F1 FanZone stage this weekend, as Yasalam’s newest addition - the Emerging Talent Competition (ETC) - held its first ever finale.
The three finalists - Jay Abo, Scott Attew and S.O.S. (Secrecy over Supremacy) - performed in front of cheering fans and the competition's judging panel: Flash’s Lee Charteris, producer Reiner Erlings and musician Jay Wud.
All the artists were judged on raw talent and ambition, their growth during the mentoring weeks, and their determination to succeed. After much deliberation among the judges, S.O.S. (Secrecy over Supremacy was crowned the overall winner.
The jubilant group said: “We are thrilled to have been announced the winners of ETC. Had it not been for the flawless guidance of the jury and ambassadors, we would have never excelled at discovering our hidden talents and improving existing ones. We would like to thank everyone who has helped contribute and give us this opportunity of a lifetime - from Flash Entertainment and its Yasalam festival to our family and friends for their unwavering support.”
S.O.S will perform live at Volkswagen's Beats on the Beach festival this Thursday, November 26th, before heading to du Arena for upcoming performances in The Village throughout the Flash 2016 events calendar.
