Making this official announcement on his verified twitter handle, Camidoh will be one of the 30 recording and performing artiste who recieve mentorship and guidance from cemented names like Diamond Platinumz, Sarkodie, Kwesta, Guilty Beatz, Juls, E. Kelly, DJ Neptune, Diplo and Mr Eazi himself, who will all be participating as mentors.
This time around, emPawa Africa will offer Camidoh and 29 other artistes the funds to film their music video, The funding for the music videos are non-repayable and absolutely free. Arts chosen will also get marketing services and other supports. The initiative is aimed at investing in the next generation of African talents, largely emerging music stars who lack the needed support.
YouTube Music will be partnering with emPawa to provide support for the 10 Nigerian artists that are chosen. “It’s critical to develop the next generation of talent—and there is so much talent exploding out of Nigeria and the African continent right now,” says YouTube’s Global Head of Music, Lyor Cohen. “Africa is setting the tempo all around the globe.”
