Trybe Records recently concluded the first edition of “Top Talent” contest. The Top Talent contest was created as a unique platform that will enable the very best of unsigned Nigerian artists to showcase their talent, promote their music, and possibly get record deals.
The contestants entered the competition with original songs. Over 2000 entries were submitted, eLDee and his team of A&R managers, music bloggers, and pop culture enthusiasts listened to all entries and selected the best 10 entries, which were then posted online for voting by the general public.
On May 13, 2011 Sojay was announced as winner of the contest after gaining the highest number of votes, followed closely by K9. As the winner of the contest Sojay has been offered a record deal with Trybe Records alongside K9, and they both get to work with eLDee on his upcoming album “Is it your money Vol.2” and their individual future releases.
As part of Trybe Records’ commitment to promoting unsigned Nigerian talent, we have created promotional media for the top 20 songs from the contest. The media promotion is intended for a nationwide audience via radio and the Internet, to enable the top 20 artists get more visibility.
Below are the top 20 songs from the last contest. Please share with all your friends and music lovers! Enjoy!
