600,000 contestants already registered for Airtel TRACE Music Star 2nd Edition

The 2nd edition of Airtel TRACE Music Star launched early this month, after a successful 1st edition in 2015 which saw a record 2.3 million calls made. The number of contestants even surpassed European and American talent shows such as “The Voice” and “Idol”.

The 2nd edition will see contestants being mentored by American vocalist and songwriter Keri Hilson.

Already, 600,000 calls from aspiring and ambitious singers have been registered to be groomed and mentored by Keri Hilson in Atlanta.

“It’s truly an honour to help unearth the raw talent out of Africa. I look forward to working with talent and ensuring that they are set on the path to stardom.” Keri Hilson says.

She also has some advice for the aspiring winners on how to be successful in the competition.

“Respect is essential, for your peers and your supporters. Never lose the passion and keep pushing yourself to greater heights.”

To enter the Airtel Trace Music Star competitions simply dial a dedicated number for your participating country, sing and record a song. Then share – share – share with the viewers and fans to select you as the local winner to represent your country at the Grand Finale held in Lagos, Nigeria in June 2016.

This year will see Niger join Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Ghana, Madagascar, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zambia as the newest African territories to enter this year’s competition.

Here at TechTrendsKE we wish you all the best as you enter the competition.
