We have in the past seen many reality music shows try to engage the young, talented African audience to “become Africa’s next music star”, but they’ve floundered reason being that no one has been able to genuinely create a cross-border penetration.
Well, one of Africa’s biggest music export Akon is the man to change that trend as the Konvict singer is committed to open the doors for other African artistes by starting up a music competition to select and groom raw talent from Africa.
And how blessed are we because Uganda is among the countries to benefit from the initiative as the artiste teamed up with Mr. Isaac Kigozi and Mr. Hemdee Kiwanuka of EWorld Media Group (EWMG) the Creators of Sean Kingston’s show ‘Fame In The Family’ that aired on E! Network and Executive Producers of ABC’s show ‘The Wildlife Docs’ Season 3, episodes 17, 18, 19 and 22 have teamed up with international superstar AKON and the leading South Africa Agency CSA (Celebrity Services Africa) and Achievers Development Agency (ADA).
According to Akon’s manager Rozina Negusei, there are tons of Millennials on the continent of Africa who dream of becoming music stars and what better way than to have them displayed on an international platform.
The winner of the competition will have the opportunity to be signed to KONLIVE Record Label and the music competition is slated for January 2017. It will comprise of auditions, live performances and one big finale with Trace TV expected to be the official broadcaster of this talent show.
