There are days when you start hitting some high notes in the shower. Days when your performance to your siblings really makes you feel like you can take on the 02 Arena or perform at Coachella. Yeah, there are days like that, when you feel you can take over the world with your music skills, why can’t you? We think you can do it, why do we believe you can? To borrow from the famous words of Cobhams Asuquo, “we have blind faith” in your ability.
But the question remains how do you become a global music star idolised around the world without leaving the comfort of your home because of the “Rona”? Relax, this is where it gets interesting, MTN recently launched Y’ello Star, a music reality show. Y’ello Star seeks not only to groom and give optimum exposure to musical talents, but it also aims to create an ecosystem that enables the Nigerian music industry take its place as an essential member of the global music industry.
Unlike other music reality shows where you have to be physically present for an audition, Y’ello Star offers you something distinctively different; auditions were done right from the comfort of entrants’ home; you heard that right. All you need is just a stable internet connection, be comfortable and log on to the MTN Y’ello Star platform where a surprise celebrity judge will be assigned to assess your singing ability, if you impress him or her, then you’ll be on your way to the boot camp and subsequently perform for over 200 million Nigerians during the weekly live shows.
The winner at the end of the 12 weeks long process becomes the very first Y’ello Star who will walk away with a brand-new car, an apartment with an inbuilt studio, enrolment at the prestigious Berklee College of Music and many other exciting prizes. See, that’s how easy it is to become a superstar right from the comfort of your home. Please don’t say we didn’t do anything for you.
