South African guitar virtuoso, Albert Frost, has won the South African leg of the Doritos Be Heard competition. Not only does this earn Frost esteem and another notch in his belt of achievements but also the grand prize of R200 000.
Says Frost about winning the competition, “This proves that there’s definitely a God up there and He’s eating Doritos”. The winning song, “Television”, was taken from Frost’s debut studio recorded EP, “Devils & Gods”, which was released earlier this year.
The Doritos Be Heard competition is an international competition with legs in Venezuela, Spain, South Africa and Mexico. Musicians from each country are given the opportunity to upload performance clips to the website. The ten most popular clips then progress into the final heat of the competition where fans are able to vote for their favourite clips. The competition ran for the duration of October and November and it was decided, due to most amount of votes, that Albert Frost had won the South African leg and along with it R200 000.
Albert Frost will be celebrating with a gig on New Year’s Eve at The Bank in Rosebank, Johannesburg.
