eLDee/Trybe Records unveil the top 10 Finalists of Youth Talent Initiative, “Top Talent”
We had earlier announced “Top Talent”, a youth targeted initiative by eLDee’s Trybe Records to foster the arts among Nigerian youths. Trybe Records has recently announced its top 10 finalists for the competition shortlisted from the thousands of entries submitted by applicants. 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. Here is an official release about the contest from Trybe Records:
The concept of TOP TALENT is to provide a platform for unsigned talent to become visible to the entire entertainment industry and music lovers across the globe. To ensure this, the top 10 talent’s song’s are listed for voting online, which promises visibility and helps generate an instant fanbase for most, if not all the artists. Trybe Records has also created strategic partnerships with media groups that will guarantee visibility for the top 10 artists through radio airplay and street promotion. Our goal at Trybe Records is simple, we hope to assist talents who otherwise are unable to launch their careers due to adequate funding or placement, by providing a springboard platform. TOP TALENT seeks to help raise the bar in the music industry by providing a level playing field for highly skilled talents across the country.
You may listen to and vote for the top 10 artists from the first edition of TOP TALENT here.
