To them, the music reality show has been a life changing experience and they ask that their fans do justice to them by voting for them.

Vodafone Icons have thrilled patrons for about six years with several editions of the TV reality show, from the maiden edition (Diva's edition), the Remix edition, the Street edition, High school edition and now the 'Rep your hood edition'.
