PRETORIA – South African non-profit organization, Centre of the Advancement of Participation in International Relations (CACPIR), has announced the launch of Africa’s first purely digital music competition called “Search Africa.“
The competition is set to be launched simultaneously in every country on the African continent, creating a platform for emerging creatives to showcase their talents and collaborate across borders.
“Search Africa is open to submissions from musicians of any genre and age, the process to entry will be simple and convenient as relevant links and a WhatsApp number will be made available on social media prior to the launch date making it even easier to enter on time,” said Tiisetso Mosholi, the Project Initiator of the Search Africa program.
The submission process will require participants to submit a 1-8 minute performance video, which will be reviewed by virtual judges from each respective country.
The best submissions will be shortlisted and uploaded on social media for public voting.
The program will consist of multiple rounds, public discussions, and challenges to keep audiences engaged and excited.
Tiisetso Mosholi, the 22-year-old CACPIR Project leader, said, “Search Africa is the next phase of the digital evolution,” and he is looking forward to a positive embrace from entertainment lovers.
Mosholi also stated that the program is launched in association with Ekovibez, Wedigitize Agency, Hype Ghana, Kultured Kreatives Media, Imbaraga Radio, Xrated Uganda, and more.
Mosholi explained that interested sponsors are free to contact the organization directly on their WhatsApp platform through the following number +27 62 992 5799 or send a formal submission through email@example.com, which is their email.
The initiative aims to create a proudly African music and artistic platform while encouraging collaboration, sustainability, development, and growth across borders.
“Search Africa” offers a unique opportunity for creatives to showcase their talents and engage with audiences across the continent. With the ongoing pandemic restrictions, the digital music competition provides a platform to connect with a wider audience from the comfort of their homes.
