The Movit Kampala Talent Excellence Initiative is on!
The initiative which returns for its second edition will see 25 contestants battle for a grand prize of Ugx 3 Million. The contestants who were selected from a talent search across the five divisions of Kampala were officially unveiled at a ceremony held at the Front Page Hotel in Zzana on Sunday as they checked into the Movit Talent House where they will undergo a week of intense training. It is here that judges will select the best nine individuals who will showcase their talent at the grand finale which will be held at the Kampala City Festival. The winner will walk away with Ugx 3 Million while the first and second runners-up will receive Ugx 2 Million and 1 Million respectively.
According to Balunywa Juma, the brains behind the Movit Kampala Talent Excellence Initiative, this project is aimed at giving rising talented singers a platform to get the much needed exposure.
Meanwhile, Emmy Musasirane, Director Operations and Administration, Movit Products Limited, has noted that this initiative is one way they are giving back to the community.
“This is a product we initiated with Balunywa Promotions to give back to the community,” he stated. “In appreciation of Kampala and surrounding areas, we decided to put some money aside to help young talented Ugandans, whose talents would have otherwise never seen the light of the day, to also come up.”
He further cautioned the contestants to maintain discipline and keep focused if they are to make it big in the music industry.
The ceremony was officiated over by the Vice President H.E.Edward Ssekandi who officially opened the Movit Talent House and lauded Movit on this initiative that is helping nurture young talent.
