CAPE TOWN – Telecom giant MTN is looking for talented singers and rappers in Cape Town to come for auditions on the 9th September 2017 at the Grande West Casino in Goodwood and again on the 16th September at the Maslow Hotel in Cape Town if you have missed the chance for the first auditioning.

MTN MegaStar is finally here! Get those vocal cords ready for the first ever-online talent competition. We’ve even made entering easy for those of you who have stage fright. Simply register here and you can skip the queue. After getting that out of the way, upload your audition video for the judges to see. Speaking of judges, they are: Tbo Touch, Nomuzi, KO and Kwesta , not forgetting the host, Katlicious.

Also, be on the lookout for MegaStar auditions in these cities:

  • Durban, Sibaya Hotel on 2nd of September 2017
  • Polokwane, Meropa Casino on 5th September 2017
  • Cape Town, Grandwest Casino on 09th September 2017
  • Port Elizabeth, The Boardwalk Casino on 13th September 2017
  • Johannesburg, Maslow Hotel on 16th September 2017

In order to be an eligible entrant, you need to be a South African citizen, 18 years or older and a ‘free agent’ – meaning if you’re currently bound by a professional contract, your entry won’t qualify.

You can enter as many clips as you like, however, the last one you upload will be the one judges consider. So do make sure that you give audition your best shot so you can be in the running to stand to win an international record deal with Temple Records, and the renowned US based producer Mike Will, who has worked with award winning artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar to name a few.

T-Bo Touch, together with KO, Kwesta and Nomuzi Mabena, will be judging the auditions and will select a total of ten contestants who will be housed in a mansion in the upmarket suburb of Steyn City in Johannesburg where they will be required to perform and complete allocated tasks.

The process of elimination will see contestants reduced on a weekly basis via public voting, and the public will vote for the winner of the grand prize. The public can vote for their preferred contestants via an SMS to 40636 R1/SMS. They will also stand a chance to win weekly prizes and one lucky subscriber stands to drive away with an Audi A1.

The video uploads competition runs from 17 August 2017 and will close on 15 September 2017.

So don’t be shy to audition. Who knows, you might be our next MTN MegaStar.
