Xenia Manasseh among 30 finalists to make the second cohort of Mr. Eazi’s emPawa Africa

The second edition of emPawa Africa seeks to promote fewer artists with more resources ($10,000). The shortlist featured 30 artists from an original 100 artists. This was mainly because of the increase in production cost. The 30 aritsts forming the second cohort of emPawa artists will get the chance to learn from veteran hitmakers like DJ Maphorisa, E-Kelly, and GuiltyBeatz. 

More than 30,000 people applied to be part of Mr. Eazi’s development and mentorship program. Mr. Eazi’s artist development program not only hopes to improve the quality of music coming from the African content but more importantly offers artists the tools required to be a worldwide success.
