The top eight performers who came through the July eliminations will be contesting the top awards at the grand finale of Sur Sangharsh-hunt at the Vodafone Arena in Suva today.

The six picked from the second eliminations are Shivneel Singh, Joslyn Lachman, Dhirish Kumar, Sharon Mani, Afia Zahin and Shewin Sanil.

Two other finalists who qualified through wild card entries are Monish Chand and Shivneel Prasad.

Event producer and director, Nilesh Kumar said the eight finalists overcame the elimination rounds.

Mr Kumar said the competition would be very tough as the contestants were very talented singers and it was very difficult to forecast at this stage who the winner would be.

Sur Sangharsh is an event of SAREGAMA Events Group with a vision to establish a platform where hidden talents are promoted not only on the national platform but also for the global platform.

“Its future aim is to organise musical events of other genres such as Western, Pacific or iTaukei so other ethnic groups can also participate and benefit out of its events,” he said.

The winner will walk away with $1000 cash, the first runner-up $500, second runner-up $350 while the most popular artist voted through text gets $750 cash.

Sur Sangharsh media partners are the Fiji Sun and Fiji TV with major sponsors; Fulton Hogan Hiways, Aveda Hair and Beauty, Island Pharmacy Limited, Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Bank of Baroda, Carpet Kingdom and the University of the South Pacific’s Workforce and Development Training Unit covering the event.

Other sponsors include Star Printery, FMF Foods Limited, National Hire, SPR, Supreme Fuel, Auto Care, New India Assurance, Life Insurance Corporation of India, LB Masters, Dragon Music, Sports World, Rewa Galaxy, Getrix, Nikhaar Events Limited and N Photography.
