Dear Semi-Finalist

With regards to the inquiries we receive, the following statement from the organizers of the competition:

1. Legislation:

On Wednesday, 22 June 2022 health minister Joe Phaahla repealed the relevant regulations, (16A, 16B and 16C of the Regulations to the Surveillance and the Control of Notifiable Medical Conditions, made in terms of sections 90(1)(j), (k) and (w) of the National Health Act, 2003 (Act 61 of 2003), in their entirety, with a notice in the Government Gazette. This notice can be read here:

2. (Impact on the) logistics of the competition:

Our contracts with the various property owners state that we are to host the events in the malls. We need to complete the quarter final rounds at all the various malls prior continuing with the regional semi-final rounds. Also, pending on deliberations with the various role-players, we will consider opening the competition for new entries too. This however, will not have any effect on the status of semi-finalists. All semi-finalists will go through to the next round they’ve qualified for automatically.
In the next few months, we will liaise with the following parties involved and will give feedback as soon as possible to all semi-finalists, pending the outcome of these meetings:

  • Mall-owners,
  • Media partners and
  • Sponsors.

As you will appreciate, all (original) sponsorships was placed on hold, pending the pandemic and the devastating affect it had on the economy and all businesses.

3. Updates:

Our updated schedule will be made available online and will be send via email once we have more clarity on when the ban will be lifted in total.
Our updated schedule, updates with regards to sponsorships and format of the competition, will be made available online at our earliest convenience, pending the outcome of the meetings with the various role players.
We are happy to announce that this competition, going forward, will be in partnership with the South African music icon, PJ Powers.
We will keep you posted regularly. Please visit the website for updated detail:
We appreciate your patience and support and thank you in advance. At this stage we aim to commence with the competition in January 2023. Please note that our terms and conditions do make provision for these circumstances.

Best regards
