The 8th Edition of the Primus Guma Guma Super Star was kicked-off at a press conference at the Bralirwa Brewery in Kicukiro this past Friday, 16th March 2018.

A few days after DJs, producers, and representatives from different radio stations, TV stations and media houses from across the country casted their votes for the PGGSS8 contestants, the names of the 10 artists participating in this year’s competition were unveiled by Yvette Ntagozera, Primus Senior Brand Manager, along with the Joseph Mushyoma, CEO of East African Promoters.

This year’s competition features; Active, Bruce Melodie, Christopher, Jay C, Just Family, Khalifan, Mico the Best, Queen Cha, Uncle Austin and Young Grace. The artists will perform for fans in 5 major districts across the country. The competition will kick-off in Gicumbi on the 26th of May 2018, and will move to Musanze on June 2nd 2018, Huye on June 16th 2018, Rubavu on June 30th 2018, and the grand finale will happen at Amahoro Stadium, Kigali on the 14th of July 2018. Fans in other districts will get the opportunity to meet the PGGSS8 artists, as they will be visiting different towns across the country for a meet and greet throughout the competition.

During the press conference, the PGGSS8 organizers also announced a new award category in this year’s competition; the Fan Favourite Award. This year’s PGGSS winner will be decided by the judges, as it has been in the previous editions, who vote based on the artists’ vocal ability, interaction with the crowd, discipline and stage management. However, to give the fans more of a say, a new category was created that is solely decided by the fans, where they can show their support by voting for their
favourite artist, while the PGGSS8 winner will be decided by the judges.

“To vote, fans will simply have to look for a unique code under the crown of any Primus 72cl, Primus 50cl, or Primus Citron; dial *733# and follow the prompts to cast their vote, and show their support for their favourite artist, using the code” explained Peter Karadjov, the Bralirwa Marketing Director.

The voting will take place from the 7th of May 2018, till the 13th of July 2018, the day before the Finale,where both the Fan Favourite, and the PGGSS8 Winner will receive their awards, and take home cash
