Samuela Navukasavu called Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC) every day to the point where he no longer needed an introduction by the receiver.

Those calls soon paid off after he was announced one of six winners of FBC’s 64th birthday promotion.

For two months, the media organisation ran a promotion where listeners or viewers would call any of the six radio stations increasing their chance to win $2000.

Mr Navukasavu who is from Navunisole, Tailevu, is 20 years old and visually-impaired.

He is a keen radio listener and would usually ask his mother for a recharge card to make a call.

On the day of the announcement, he told his family to tune into the radio and asked his mother whether she wanted a refrigerator or television.

Maraia Navukasavu, his mother, said: “I was sweeping our house, so I never really expected him to win. To my surprise, his name was announced, I jumped with joy because I know that all the recharge cards that I was buying was worth it.”

The competition was sponsored by Courts, giving away $1000 cash vouchers to each winner and a $1000 each from FBC.
