The search for the next afrobeats superstar will enter a new phase today as the group stage of the music reality TV show, Naija Star Search, kicks off, with media personality, VJ Adams, as the host.
Recall that 17 contestants, made up of young and promising music talents, were unveiled by the judges last Sunday. They will perform only Nigerian songs, starting with classics and contemporaries, before singing original songs composed by them.
It is expected that the show’s judges— Kenny Ogungbe, ID Cabasa and Asha Gangali— will use their wealth of experience to bring out the stars in the contestants.
Contestants under Team Asha are Sparrowh, TOMs, MB Dre, Specko and Kachi; while Team Cabasa has Jaydbody, Greysky, Denerio, Esjay, Thekhaleed and Skimzo; and Team Keke has eMzez, Eniolá, Black Bella, SKIFFY, Melo and Jazzman.
They will compete to earn a place among the final seven to be groomed by the Kennis Music label and given a platform to refine their raw talents, and win the coveted N10m prize.
