The founder of Varsity’s Got Talent, VUT student Peter Rasaha, also known as Peter the Great, says he believes anything is possible if you work hard and believe in yourself.
However, he realised that students lack the platform to showcase their talents and gain support, so he created the event whereby talents are groomed and every year, contestants of any age can audition for the show with whatever talent they wish to demonstrate, seeking to impress a panel of judges in order to secure a place in the final round.
Varsity Got Talent also gives VUT students, within the four faculties, the platform to learn how to organise events; especially at first-year level.
“This will make it easy for those students to familiarise themselves on what is done in the entertainment industry,” said Mr Rasaha who works with some well-known celebrities such as Killer Kau, Kamo Mphela, Donald and many more.
This platform is open to all VUT students and they are encouraged to participate so that they can gain exposure and ensure that their talent gets recognised by different stakeholders who have partnered with Peter the Great.
