Continental Singing competition ‘Amazing Voices’ returns this April

Season two of the Old Mutual Amazing Voices singing competition is on its way to the TV screens across Africa from 11 April 2021.

Since the announcement of the return of season two last year, 546 entries flooded in for the audition phase, in which the top 10 acapella groups from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Africa will be selected to experience the gruelling judging process as they display their passion and determination competing for the whopping US$ 100 000 grand prize.

· Nigeria: E-Kelly / Aramide

· Ghana: Pauline Odduro / Reggie Rockstone

· Kenya: Sanapei Tande / Ted Josiah

The top 10 groups, two from each country, will then set out for South Africa were they will undergo an intense musical, educational, and inspirational bootcamp at Sun City.

During an intense three weeks, while living in a Covid bubble, the groups, of four, six and eight members, are put through their paces as they prepare for the final phase sing-off by having their vocal and performance abilities perfected by a team of experts.

Their journey to stardom will be closely monitored by the experienced judging table from each of the countries and supported by the show advisor Zwai Bala.

The talented judges’ table includes Zimbabwe’s afro-pop and RnB singer/songwriter, Ammara Brown Kenya’s Filah Tuju, renowned as a performer, voice coach, writer and producer and founder of a Music Academy, Ghana’s Trigmatic, a multi-award winning rapper, composer and songwriter, South Africa’s Vusi Nova, the best afro album and best male awards winner.
