SINGAPORE - Media OutReach -
2 July 2021 - After announcing her departure from radio on Monday 28 June 2021, DJ Maddy Barber was egged on by co-hosts Divian Nair and Andre Hoeden to sponsor a radio giveaway. With the encouragement of many Kiss fans, Barber ended up agreeing to a $50,000 bespoke jewellery giveaway, the highest value given away on Singapore radio!

Out of all the heartfelt entries, Jovan Teo's post and Instagram account stood out. The 27 year old wedding photographer shares his Instagram account with his girlfriend, Eveleen Liew, and as a regular listener of Kiss92FM, she had first heard about the giveaway. 4 years and 4 months ago, they met by chance at the ice rink in Kallang Leisure Park. Both of them happened to be ice skating and clearing their heads after a bad day when Eveleen approached Jovan and asked him to teach her how to skate backwards! The rest is history.
With their entire Instagram profile peppered with loving dedications to each other and promises of a future, there was no question that they were going to be the lucky ones. Singapore's first professional proposal company, Help You Marry, and floral designer, Regina Mae Fleurs, decorated the recording studio beautifully with neon lights, flowers and foliage to set the scene for the epic proposal. Jovan recited his carefully penned speech but just before he went down on one knee and asked her those four magic words, Eveleen stopped him and surprised him with a counter proposal! Of course, it wasn't just a 'yes', it was a "MADLY YESSSS!" from Jovan.
DJ Maddy Barber is definitely ending her 25 year radio career with a bang! Running up to her final show on 16 July, Barber will be giving away four more MADLY jewellery experiences worth $10,000 each. The coming week's giveaway is all about the "MADLY Upgrade" and is open to couples who've already popped the question years ago and who would still love to get a 'MADLY Yes', or for anyone who would like to upgrade or restyle their existing jewellery by saying "yes" to MADLY.
To participate, listeners have to share a picture of the jewellery piece they'd like to upgrade on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #MadlyYes, and also share their heartfelt story on why they want a MADLY upgrade.
