Ethiopian wins USD 20,000 Maltavator Prize


Ethiopia’s Keariyam, was the winner of the Pan African TV show tagged the Maltavator Challenge which included 40 contestants from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana and Ivory Coast. The eleven week long contest finished after a challenging finale which featured eight quarterfinalists from four countries. Keariyam who had a low performance in the prior rounds couldn’t get enough points to join the last five Ethiopians in the next round but made it through via the vote of his group. The transformed performance by Keariyam gave him the chance to get the support not only from everyone.

“I will use the prize to cover my educational cost and help my family,” said Keariyam at the welcoming event held at AV lounge last Saturday. “I didn’t expect this result as the contest was challenging and the competitors were so tough. I am happy that I won the prize and I would like to thank Malta for such a chance.”
The Pan African Maltavator Challenge TV show, which was hosted in Nigeria, challenged the participants both physically and mentally. The challenge has only one winner while everyone else left as brand ambassador and was rewarded with goodie bags and cash prizes.
The high energy drink, Malta Guinness, which has the motto ‘fueling the greatness’ was promoted throughout the contest and the contestants had to drink it during the games.
The second round of the Maltavator Challenge will begin soon and those who want to know the details are invited to check out the  Malta Guinness Facebook page.
