Dubai: For the first time in the history of the contest, a Ghanaian won the coveted title of Western Union Camp ka Champ — Season 15. The first-place winner, Kelvin Kwabna, an employee of Farnek Services, walked away with a cash prize of Dh30,000.

Kelvin, who was excited and emotional at the same time, said: “I want to thank God and my friends who were solidly behind me right through the competition. It is an experience I cannot forget. Music in general has been my passion. When I heard about the Camp ka Champ auditions, I decided to give it my best. Regarding my plans for the prize money, I will invest part of it in my career and part of the money will be donated to an orphanage. I would also like to give a share to my family and friends who, through thick and thin, believed in my craft.”
