Ruth Maafo, Events and Sponsorship Manager for Vodafone Ghana, says this year’s edition of the Vodafone Icons is to empower young people to be creative in their quest to become music icons.
According to Miss Maafo, the rationale behind this year’s edition, dubbed Vodafone Icons ‘Remix’, is to give contestants the platform to perform their remixed versions of popular songs.
She stated that the music reality show seeks to discover and groom local music talents for international stage in an intense ‘Boot Camp’ session. 20 contestants will be selected from the nationwide audition and then shortlisted to 12 for the main event.
“Contestants will receive professional training from top-notch voice trainers and chorographers through competitive tasks to promote self-confidence and creativity,” she added.
This season the award-winning musician, M.anifest, singer Gena West and radio presenter Ms Naa will be the judges for the 13 weeks music reality show.
The reality show, which started in 2010, has produced amazing singers including Afro Rock singer, Noella Wiyaala and Ryan.
