eLDee recently announced an initiative created by Trybe Records called “Top Talent“.
It is a platform for unsigned Nigerian artists of all genres that allows for them to showcase their talent and possibly get a record deal.
The contest requires unsigned talent to enter an mp3 song for free by sending an email with their song attached. eLDee and his team of A&Rs will then listen to all entries and select the top 10. The top 10 entries will be posted on a website for free online voting by the general public. The Top Talent based on online votes will automatically get featured on eLDee’s upcoming “Is it your money Vol.2” album including a possible music recording deal offer from Trybe Records.
