THE final eight acts that vied for the 2015 Welkom’s Got Talent title brought down the curtain in style on this year’s talent search competition on Saturday (23/05).

These acts reached the final after rounds of auditions and took the stage to showcase performances that surpassed the expectations of not only the audience, but also the judging panel. The pressure was on, as it was time for the acts to give it their all with their final perfor-mance in their quest to scoop the 2015 Welkom’s Got Talent title.

The stiff contest saw Goodness Makau being crowned the winner, beating the other two acts in the top three – Osama Bin Singing and Ragamuffinz – by a small margin, according to the judging panel.

Makau’s performance earned her the R20 000 in prize money, R5 000 in fashion vouchers sponsored by the Just Property Group Goldfields Mall as well as the opportunity to star as the opening act at a Goldfields Casino-scheduled concert within the next six months.

This year’s Welkom’s Got Talent initiative was co-sponsored by Vista and Express Goldfields andamp; NFS, the Goldfields Casino, Coca-Cola, Tshebo Multimedia Innovations, Dela Casa Productions and the Just Property Group Goldfields
