Vodafone Fiji has barred the use of its SMS platform for the text voting promotion for Season Two of the Fiji Dancing Superstar competition.

This was after the competition organiser, Ganesha Productions allegedly failed to draw the prizes of the promotion that ended last March.

Vodafone’s head of mCommerce and Corporate Affairs, Shailendra Prasad said they had avoided their involvement with the organiser after they were made aware of the alleged breach by Ganesha Productions.

“Our investigations reveal that the prizes were not drawn and this has been confirmed by an independent investigation of the Consumer Council. It is a poor reflection on the part of Ganesha Productions which had promised so much to contestants and public,” Mr Prasad said.

The promotion and competition, he said, was solely owned, organised and administered by the production company and they were responsible for the drawing and awarding of the prizes to the winning participants and SMS voters.

Several attempts made to reach Ganesha Productions owner, Sandeep Singh by phone but they were unsuccessful. But Mr Prasad said Mr Singh had previously promised to meet with them to clear the issue, but he had always failed to turn up to the meeting.
