Nigerian musician, eLDee recently announced an initiative created by Trybe Records called “Top Talent“.

The top 10 entries will be posted on a website for free online voting by the general public. The Top Talent based on online votes will automatically get featured on eLDee’s upcoming “Is it your money Vol.2″ album including a possible music recording deal offer from Trybe Records.
