Large turnout puzzle BSS judges

From The Citizen Daily, Dar es Salaam

Bongo Star Search judges on Tuesday had to endure long hours of auditions after an over whelming crowd turned up for trials at Coco Beach in Dar es Salaam.

According to the chief judge, Rita Paulsen, the crowd was overwhelming and they had to increase the number of days from the original two.

“We hardly expected this, today alone we attended to 500 contestants and thousands more were still waiting outside the hall,” she said.

“After seeing the large turnout and because we want to give everyone a chance to show case their talent we decided to increase the number of days to four,” added Rita.

BSS now in its fourth has already conducted auditions in three other regions, Dodoma, Arusha and Mwanza, with 10 contestants being selected from the three auditions.

The broadcast of the auditions are slated to start later on in the month with the date of the finals to be named later.
End of story.
