OFM, celebrating 35 years of the sound of your life, is offering listeners a chance to win big with the OFM Secret Song competition, on air from 2 to 30 July 2021!
July has been earmarked as OFM’s ‘official’ birthday month, with special on-air birthday programming planned for Thursday, 1 July. From Friday, 2 July, listeners will be enticed with the exciting ‘Secret Song’ competition, where one lucky listener stands to win R35 000 cash for correctly guessing the title as well as the artist performing the song in question.
OFM has selected a ‘secret song’, which was released roundabout 1986. A short clip of this song will be played on air throughout the month and listeners will be asked to guess what it is.
To enter, listeners need to SMS the keyword ‘secret’ to 36636 (R1.50/SMS) with the full title of the song, as well as the artist. They also need to include their name and surname, and from where they are listening. Only entries that include all of the required information will be eligible.
From 12 to 29 July 2021, OFM will select 35 finalists, who will be announced on air. Their names and song selections will be published on ofm.co.za.
Once a song has been guessed, the finalist announced and the name displayed on the website, it is no longer in contention. Another song choice can then be guessed. Selected finalists’ choices are final, and they cannot enter another song choice.
Clues as to what the song is can be obtained by SMSing ‘clue’ to 36636 (R1.50/SMS) from 2 July 2021. These clues will change from time to time. Keep an ear out as presenters will notify listeners of new clues being released.
Says OFM Programme Manager, Tim Thabethe: “The ‘Secret Song’ concept is a tried and tested and fun competition mechanic that talks to OFM’s biggest product offering, which is music.
“The R35 000 prize is a life-changing sum of money. OFM is driven to surprise and delight the listener and July presents one of three campaigns in 2021 that celebrate OFM’s 35th birthday.
“The suspense of the Secret Song should create a lot of talkability among OFM’s listening audience,” concludes Thabethe.
In the spirit of giving, OFM will waiver our 60 day winning rule, meaning that should you have won anything on OFM’s platforms on the last 60 days, you will still be eligible to enter the Secret Song competition. Other general competition rules will still apply and can be found on OFM’s website.
Although there is only one grand prize of R35 000 cash, all finalists will receive limited edition retro OFM memorabilia in celebration of our 35th birthday year.
The grand prize winner will be announced on OFM on 30 July 2021, during the Good Morning Breakfast, between 06:00 and 09:00.
