    jika saya menang battle of the bands yang menawarkan hadiah sebanyak USD100,000, perkara pertama yang akan saya buat ialah saya akan menubuhkan satu studio rakaman untuk kumpulan saya berlatih di samping mencipta lagu lagu terbaru kami.
    selain itu wang yang saya menang jugak saya akan mengeluarkan album pertama saya dengan semua hasil lagu di dalamnya di cipta khas oleh komposer terkenal tanah air mahupun di luar negara. dengan jumlah wang yang cukup besar ini, saya percaya saya akan dapat hasil yang terbaik di kalangan komposer yang terbaik.
    seterusnya, saya akan menyimpan 20% daripada wang yang dimenangi itu di dalam bank untuk simpanan saya dalam bidang seni ini kelak sebab saya percaya langit bukannya selalunya cerah.

    maka itulah cara saya mengunakan wang yang dimenangi dari pertandingan battle of the bands.
