SAMSUNG TO LAUNCH REGIONAL MUSIC TALENT SEARCH
The talent search crew is expected to tour Kisumu, Eldoret, Mombasa and Nakuru in search of the brightest young singing talent. Yvonne Lyra who was the first Zikistar talent to be discovered at the first show held at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Nairobi, which coincided with the Samsung Africa Forum, is currently producing a solo track with Wyre at Homeboyz studios. Wyre said the track would soon hit clubs across the country. “After conducting a voice test for Lyra, I am convinced she has what it takes to break in the music industry,” Wyre revealed.
Samsung Marketing Director Betty Radier said the Samsung Zikistar talent search will provide aspiring and undiscovered artistes with an opportunity to develop their careers. “Samsung is committed to uncovering genuine, fresh music talent through Zikistar talent search. We have partnered with leading local artistes to mentor them to achieve their best,” she said.
