The Tusker Nexters, fresh from their final casting segment in Eldoret, head south to the final region in Mombasa this weekend.
The music and eGames talent scouting platform launched about a month ago at the ASK showground in Meru, where the first finalists were chosen after a grueling final battle. The property has since traversed the country, visiting the Lakes region, Nairobi and the Rift region this past weekend.
Several Kenyans from across the country entered the competition to represent their region at the national finals, which will be held later in May 2022.
Talent search platform Tusker Nexters is part of Tusker’s 100th anniversary campaign, which aims to bring out the next generation of Kenyan talent in music and sports. It was also an introduction of the wider Kenyan audience to eSports, or electronic sports, which are seen globally as the next frontier of virtual sports.
The upcoming two-day casting and knockout series will take place on the 9th at the Butterfly Pavilion in the Bamburi district of Mombasath and 10th April.
Revelers will be thrilled to see the best of Kenyan musical talent including; Redsan, Fena, Mejja and former Tusker Project Fame Judge, Ian Mbugua
Tusker Brand Manager Catherine Twesigye said: “We can’t wait to see the talent that the coastal region has to offer. I urge all aspiring singers, instrumentalists, and gamers to show up in large numbers. You could be the next big star in Kenyan music and esports.”
After the final auditions in Mombasa, attention turns to the national finals in May, where the best of the best from each region will compete for the ultimate Tusker Nexters crown.
