It's closer to the finale of the third staging of the SunCity 104.9 Fm Disc Jock competition and it's even more intense and the DJs are ramping up their ingenious skills in order to take home the trophy as well as over $300,000 in cash and prizes.
The 10 weeks of high energy and nail-biting face-offs between DJs representing 16 schools have boiled down to two contestants, namely DJ Talawah of Calabar High and DJ Igloo of Jose Marti Technical High School in the grand final playoff for the ultimate title.
The SunCity Wild Card Playoffs will see Kellits High School, Ardenne High School, Ascot High School and St Georges College.
Chairman of SunCity 104.9FM, Steve Billings noted that he has seen a display of creative techniques, growth, self-discipline, confidence and an increase in the application of values over the duration of the competition.
The schools can be lauded for playing their part in upholding the slogan of the competition ‘AVOID NEGATIVE, Stick to education, he said.
He also stated that the moral of the student deejays has been bolstered by the SunCity Sunjocks as coaches to direct and foster quality radio delivery and performance.
Billings lauded the sponsors of the 2018 staging: Lasco Icool, St Mary's Banana Chips, Digicel, The Release, Loop, Teen Vybe, Rokin Entertainment, Print Big and Jungle Fyah.
