LOCAL hip-hop artist Azi Dladla, better known as Azi SA, is on the fast track to success and needs the community’s help to get there.

Azi (20) is a strong contender in the Tru Talent Search competition which is run by SABC radio station Tru FM in Bhisho.

Azi has been on the scene since 2012, when he launched his first album The Beginning of the End at the age of 15 and he launched his third album Me, myself and Music in August this year.

He has performed at various shows, including the Northern Areas Arts (NAF) Festival 2013, the Bay Opening of the Festive Season 2013/2014, the Ebubeleni Music Festival 2015 and the Nelson Mandela Bay Music Festival 2016.

The Tru Talent Search competition gives young entertainers in the Eastern Cape the opportunity to take their careers to the next level.

The top 18 artists in the categories of dance, music and radio presenting were chosen after auditions took place all over the province and Azi made the cut.

The winner of the music section will receive a prize of R10 000 and studio time at one of the Eastern Cape’s best recording studios with award-winning artist Ifani. After recording a song with Ifani, a music video will be shot and the winner will also be taken on a nationwide tour to promote the song at SABC TV and Radio Music shows.

“I am more than ready to start challenging for the number one spot in the country, with a vision of seeing Nelson Mandela Bay’s entertainment industry growing and artists not having to be in Joburg to make it big. This is the perfect start,” Azi said.

The winner is chosen through a voting system. The musician with highest number of votes wins the big prize.

Azi SA needs the community’s support to win the competition. To vote for him, SMS Music 14 to 32666. Voting closes on October 21.
