About the Afri Music Song Contest
The AfriMusic Song Contest was launched in 2017, opening entries to all song- writers and artists across the African continent. It is the first and biggest music platform of its kind on the continent and was created with the idea to cement song writing in the music industry, to grow and recognise the genius behind the hits.
Similar in format to the Eurovision Song Contest, it is an opportunity to shine the spotlight on the best songwriters in Africa’.
The AfriMusic Song Contest will not only provide artists with a platform to showcase their talents to the rest of the world, but we will also create a platform that will educate, motivate and grow the music industry in Africa through its music room sessions and industry education programs.
