Last Friday was a big day for 17-year-old Johnny Apple. The young SA’s Got Talent winner was announced as the official support act for One Direction’s “On The Road Again” three leg tour dates in South Africa this month. Johnny discussed the moment he got told the news with Stacey Norman on 947 just after 09h00 and short of being speechless he said that it was “an incredible opportunity that only comes around once in a lifetime”. I’d say that pretty much sums it up (and this kind of a gig can pretty much be compared to opening for The Beatles, no?). Johnny will be performing at all three shows and will be playing to over 100 000 people. Best he gets his earplugs ready for the screaming girls.
A lot of 1D fans have expressed their excitement at the announcement and tweets are pouring in and eager fans are already trying to find out which songs Johnny will be performing during the show. So we had a thought! Why not give one lucky fan the opportunity to win a signed copy of Johnny’s full debut album, along with a copy of One Direction’s latest album ‘FOUR’, and the Utimate edition, nogal. That way someone is going to be really well prepared for the show and this person can also school some of the other 1D fans around which tracks from Johnny’s album they should be getting excited about ahead of the show.
So how do you enter? All it takes is for you to tweet #JohnnyApple1D @JohnnyAppleSA @Hookmode and your reason for why you should win to him directly! Easy enough right? Johnny has agreed to DM the winner directly on Wednesday morning, so that’s something else to get excited about. All that’s left to say is GOOD LUCK and get entering!
Disclaimer: Competition closes at midnight on Wednesday 4 March. One entry per person only. Courier to South African address only.
