Ykee Benda, Mun G and Nava Grey are several millions richers after securing the new juicy mentorship deal from Uganda Waragi under their A Ka Dope Show sponsorship.
The “Entanglement star”, “Muna Kampala” hitmaker and the “Omuloge” song bird will feature on the four episodes of the A ka Dope star talent search, each of which shall be headlined by a different Mentor artist whose role is to support the growth and development of the upcoming performers.
A Ka Dope, a multi-art show that launched an online talent search competition last month where 12 underground acts will perform alongside established artistes who stand a chance to win a fully-fledged recording deal is still running to December.
Ykee Benda has fueled the growth of a new age of music with his dynamic vocals and eccentric production. By blending urban production styles with soulful lyrics. Mun G is unarguably among the fore fathers of the hip-hop scene in Uganda and Nava’s incredible vocals qualifies her as a competent music mentor.
The competition dubbed the A Ka Dope Stars requires participants to record and upload a 40-second video of themselves singing or rapping on their social media pages and encourage their fans to repost, share and comment. Out of the submissions, the 12 best acts shall be shortlisted as semi-finalists and perform live with the A Ka Dope Band to compete for the grand prize of Shs2 million cash and a recording deal with 101 Music.
