Set to be bigger, better and bolder, M-Net has confirmed that DStv audiences will soon be able to tune in for the third season of the popular music reality series Glo Naija Sings.
Tapping into the talent of Nigeria’s music community, the series combines the energy and emotion of aspiring performers with the expertise and skill of already established industry stars. The result is sensationally entertaining television that has the unique potential to change lives, as in the case of Season 1 winner Jon Ogah and Season 2’s breakout star, Casey Edema, who both walked away with USD 100 000 in cash.
Open to a wide range of vocal music performers from soloists and duos to groups of up to four persons, Glo Naija Sings gets under way in July with free auditions set for seven cities across the country where hopefuls can put their singing ambitions to the test. So whether you like to express yourself through hip-hop, reggae, R&B, Afrobeat, pop, soul or jazz, now’s your chance to step into the spotlight. The competition is open to entrants over the age of 18, with valid proof of Nigerian citizenship. All entrants will have to complete an entry form and are only allowed to audition once.
Produced by M-Net Nigeria and Nevermachine, in previous seasons the show included special celebrity judges as part of the audition process and this year, it will be no different. Past celebrity judges have included General Pype, Djinee, Omawumi, YQ, GT the Guitarman, Tyeng Gang, Kore Brown and TJ, to name a few, so fans are advised to keep an eye out for more top performers this time round.
“We’ve been very fortunate that the cream of Nigeria’s music industry have joined us over the past two seasons, to the absolute delight of our audiences and the benefit of our contestants. By giving so generously of their time and their talent, they have grown not only their own fan base but also played a vital part in the development of Nigerian music,” says Biola Alabi, Managing Director of M-Net Africa.
She continues: “M-Net is happy to partner with Glo once more on a program which has really begun to draw large audiences eager to see, hear and celebrate great music from rising Nigerian stars. It’s fantastic that audiences are so responsive to this kind of series, that viewers participate through voting and that they really want to see the contestants succeed. It’s exciting, dramatic, and of course, fun!”
So if you want to have fun, and possibly find great fame and a large fortune along the way, make sure that you enter Season 3 of Glo Naija Sings!
