The upcoming A Ka Dope Stars grand finale slated for February 2021 will see four contenders battle to bag a recording deal with 101 Music among other prizes according to information reaching ChimpReports.
The A Ka Dope Stars is a music talent search that was introduced in September 2020 with the intention of creating a platform for the undiscovered talent in Uganda.
The contestants are matched with some of the renowned artists in Uganda’s music industry, who mentor and help them with musical and stage performance tips.
The mentors for the maiden A Ka Dope Stars season include; MUN G, YKee Benda and Naava Grey. The mentors have held training sessions with the different individuals and groups for their solo and group performances.
Three teams comprising four individuals are undergoing training and feedback sessions as per the team leader’s guidance.
“This is purposed to help the contestants to harness their stage performance and vocal ability,” A Ka Dope officials said.
The performances have been held online with participants tasked to perform their original compositions which are followed by a voting process.
This year’s finalists from the different teams include; Mitchy from Team Naava Grey, Emuron from Team Mun G, while for Team YKee Benda, it is still a tight race as the results are still being tallied.
The finale will be climaxed by individual performances by representatives from Team YKee Benda, Team MUN G, and Team Naava Grey. The fourth contestant will be an individual based on the viewer’s choice, who will be disclosed at the grand finale.
