Audiomack & Afrochella Announce Rising Star Contest

By Audiomack on

Calling all rising African artists!

Audiomack and Afrochella have teamed up for the second year in a row to host the Rising Star Challenge, a platform to uncover up-and-coming talent across Africa.


Artists are invited to submit their best track. 25 of the best submissions will be included in a curated Audiomack playlist for the public to vote through streams, favorites, and shares.

Three artists will be vetted to perform onstage at Afrochella Block Party (sponsored by Audiomack) on December 26 at BBNZ Live.

One grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 USD cash prize, a studio session at BBNZ live, and a featured slot on the Audiomack platform. The grand prize winner will be selected by a team of judges that includes British-Ghanaian producer and DJ Juls, Ghanaian singer-songwriter King Promise, and Audiomack's Content Strategy Manager for Africa, Olive Uche.
