Over the years African Music has proven to be the most listened all over the world, our distinctive genres have enabled us to safeguard our respective musical culture. Many Africa countries have managed to hold on to their musical identity but we have some countries that lack that musical identity, one being Kenya.
We’ve heard about Tusker Project Fame, well known as TPF. One of our own Kenyan talents showcased for us to see. It’s true Kenyans got talent and now the Next Rated Superstar.
There will be a competition that is to be held on the 17th September 2016 at Sarakasi Dome and the winners are to enjoy the following benefits:
They will be in Nigeria for a period of two months, within which they are expected to learn the following:
1. Music Mentorship
2. Music – preneurship (The business aspect of music)
3. Finally have their song produced .
The songs produced will be promoted on both local and International music television stations as it’s obtainable with every song produced by the academy. Further to that, arrangements are being made to have them perform in some upcoming events in Nigeria.
After their training and music production they will return to Kenya as a musical group who are professionally ready to take on the world and add value to the industry here in Kenya. And hopefully they will be able to introduce a different sound in the Kenyan musical industry.
The Singing entry will include English, Swahili and their respective ethnic language with performance duration of three minutes maximum per candidate. It is open to youth between the ages of eighteen to thirty five years.
We can all see that this is the next big thing. Being the first edition, we hope to see Next Rated Superstar go up the ladder and bring out the best when it comes to Kenyan Music.
This Search will see lucky talented Kenyans from different ethnic regions given the opportunity of working with renowned African music Producers from Nigeria, the likes who did production works for Olamide, Timaya, Chidinma, Phyno, Patoranking , just to mention a few.
