Old Mutual Amazing Voices, a new reality talent search competition seeking to unearth music hopefuls from four African countries in a fierce battle of the genres will soon hit your screens.
The show will see musicians across gospel, pop and R&B compete for a chance to win Ksh 10 million. Contestants from Ghana, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya will battle it out for the grand prize.
The pan-African singing competition is set to premiere on the 12th of January 2020 up until 5th April of the same year- and is set to air on DSTV and GOTV.
Industry pundits from each of the four countries will select three groups from each genre after mass auditions to steer them through the elimination round before the winning group is chosen. After the elimination phase, the remaining groups will advance to the grand stage where they will sing it out to win the golden prize.
Singer Sanaipei Tande and one of Kenya’s leading jazz vocalist Kavutha Mwanzia-Asiyo have been named the Kenyan selectors during the auditions.
“UAP Old Mutual is excited to be the title sponsor for a show we believe will bring Africa together in a unique and uplifting way. We believe that music is a universal language which is why it forms the basis of our businesses strategic sponsorship focus. Now, more than ever, we believe that the continent is ready for the unifying experience and amplification of talent we know Amazing Voices is going to deliver,” says Carol Kipsanai, Group Head of Marketing and Communications at UAP Old Mutual.
