Campusers ‘croak’ at Trace music star hunt

Kenneth Mugabi recently got lucky after landing a record deal with top city producer, Washington, during the Airtel Trace Music star search at Nalikka Hostel. Most Makerereans tried their luck, taking on the mic and hoping to win at least an android. Unfortunately, most of their hopes seemed to hit a dead-end since Washington, who was the judge, awarded most of them zero marks.

“Most participants drowned the crowd in a pool of laughter as they shouted, “cried”, and unpleasantly bellowed, instead of singing.
The promotion lets the network’s subscribers use their mobile phones to join this music talent search. The competition is set to roll out to most universities country wide. Different categories will have different judges, where female contestants will be judged by James Onen aka Fatboy, and the guys will be judged by Cindy and Hip hop contestants will be judged by GNL Zamba.
