It was indeed a dream come true for Fiji Gas IT Officer, Isimeli Basaga, who has won $50,000 in Vodafone Fiji’s Christmas promotion for 2015.

A cheque was handed over to an overwhelmed and shocked Mr Basaga yesterday by Vodafone Fiji which left Mr Basaga literally speechless for a moment.

The 33 years old, Namara, Tailevu native said he received a call from Vodafone on Monday informing him that he had won $2000.

He said he was not told that he had won 50,000 which he received at the Vodafone headquarters yesterday.

“I am shocked that I’ve won; it still feels like a dream to me,’’ he said.

“It’s a first time for me to win this kind of promotion.”

Since the past week, Mr Basaga had been planning to paint his house and now he plans to do that but also start up his own farm as was his long term plan.

The promotion
Vodafone Fiji was giving away up to $100,000 in prizes for their Christmas promotion in which both prepaid and postpaid customers could take part.

Vodafone Head of E-Commerce and Corporate Affairs, Shailendra Prasad said the promotion was a success.

“We been doing genuine promotions and our customers have been benefiting,” he said.

“We have had thousands of winners throughout the years and this the first time; a cash price of $50,000 has been given away for Christmas.”

Customers, with purchases of smart phones, got two entries and every 4G device purchased got customers four entries into the draw.
