A LOCAL struggling artist recently won the first ever PeGotBars Rapping Competition that was held on Facebook.
Scott Geduld, also known as ScottyG (19), is now a recognised artist owing to a Facebook competition hosted by music producer, Hein Bosman.
Bosman first announced the competition on May 16 on his Facebook page, stating that the aim is to give exposure to Port Elizabeth talent.
He produced two beats for the competition. The contestants had to choose between them and record a rap in Bosman’s studio.
Entry cost R120, which included one hour of recording time.
The winner of the competition got to release their rap song as their own, along with another to be produced and recorded by Bosman.
On June 29, all submissions were uploaded to Facebook and the voting process began.
The song that got the most Likes would be the winner. Scott was announced victorious on July 22.
He has just released his first single, “Competition”, which is available for download at music.theblacksmithed.com/download/competition. He is also now working on his first album.
Other talented Port Elizabethans should be on the lookout as the next PeGotBars competition will take place sometime this month.
