MTN Nigeria has unveiled the Y’ello Star Music Reality Show.
The show, like the now defunct project fame, is a musical platform created by MTN Nigeria to search for, discover, nurture, expose and launch music talents in young Nigerians.
“We know that there are a lot of talented people in Nigeria who need to turn up their musical careers,” Rahul De, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN Nigeria said.
The competition is expected to run til June 2020.
But unlike Project Fame that involves physical auditions, MTN Y’ello Star only requires interested participants to record themselves and upload through MyMYN app or the website.
