IN keeping with youth development, OMagadlela Events in conjunction with uMngeni Municipality will on 24 June host a talent development initiative­ at Howick West community hall.

Event organiser, Bongani Gina said the initiative will include an artist workshop and a talent search competition.

“The main purpose for the event is to equip local upcoming artists with the knowledge they require to make it in the music industry. We want them to know about opportunities that are out there.”

They have invited gospel artists Babo Ngcobo and Thina Zungu, actor Tshepanga Mohlomi and kwaito artist Beezory to share their success stories and experiences about the creative industry.

“We have also invited KZN Music House, Southern African Music Rights Organisation and the Creative­ Workers Union to come and advise artists about their rights and assist them in improving their professional capabilities within the creative­ industry.”

The development workshop will be rounded off with a talent search competition where the winner stands a chance of walking away with a recording deal worth R30 000 from Sello Music.

Auditions will be open to artists of all genres, including poets.

The R30 000 prize money includes over 200 copies of CDs, and in addition we also invited different recording studios to come and scout new talent.

The artist workshop will start at 9am, thereafter the talent search at 12pm. Entry is free.
