However, these talents are, at best, under-developed or outrightly allowed to die because they are not being harnessed. With MTN Y’ello Star, every talented singer will be allowed to showcase themselves.

MTN Y'ello star ensures that when these talents are discovered, they are assembled in a house where their skills and talents are horned through lectures, guidance, mentoring and practical sessions by renowned teachers, artists who have distinguished themselves in the industry.

Through the contest, the winner, and runners get prizes that will assist them in their musical aspirations.

What’s in it for contestants?

All the contestants are groomed and exposed through training facilitated by credible and respected Industry experts. They will also go through practical sessions that the hub/show offers. This will be critically important when they eventually evolve into the industry.

What you will get as a winner

MTN will turn it up for the winner of the competition, who will be referred to as The Y’ello Star. The winner will receive a brand new fully furnished house with an in-house studio, a brand new car, a recording deal, and other enticing surprise rewards.

How the winner will be chosen? The audience determines the winner
