First of all, our profound appreciation goes out to our devoted fans that have made Rhodies World their favourite online media and entertainment magazine. Special thanks to those who took part in the face of Rhodies World (FRW)season 3 Facebook screening exercise that just ended. We are proud of you and are doing everything to serve you better.
We need to stress here that we at Rhodies World always insist on fairness, integrity, professionalism and value. We will by no means do anything that is unfair to our fans, our public, clients and business partners as that would be contrary to our code of ethics and conscience. Therefore, as a responsible organization, that has also enjoyed tremendous faith from our numerous fans, we do all we can to be accountable to them. This is why we thought it appropriate to explain the decision that we have taken for furthering the FRW contest project.
The names of 40 contestants who made it through the FRW Facebook screening were released on Friday 25th October, 2013. When the screening ended by 12 noon, another contestant was added the next day to make it 41 contestants. This was done because the said contestant, Miss Miracle Cindy Aludogbu complained that her score was high yet she had not been selected. Our team confirmed her claim, and, rather than replace another name with hers, we felt right to add her to the already published list of qualified contestants.
This step did generate some reactions from our fans, which made us further probe the situation surrounding Mis Aludogbu’s qualification; we discovered that her score of Facebook likes had increased in a rapid and unexplainable manner. This informed our decision to revert to the first list of 40 names further strengthening our standard of ONLY 40 contestants making it through to the next stage of the contest which will commence from November 1, 2013.
We are well aware of the inconvenience, discontentment that this change might cause. Hence we humbly request for your understanding, while we take full responsibility for this slip-up and promise that it will not repeat itself, as we are fully committed to the continued success of the FRW contest.
Furthermore, on behalf of my team and me, I wish to apologize to our contestants, fans and to Miss Miracle Cindy Aludogbu who is affected directly by the adjustment. This decision is what is best for the contest, our fans and Rhodies World.
Thank you for your understanding.
