The Time is Now to find the best voices in Africa. Online entries to Old Mutual Amazing Voices Season 2 opened on 28 October 2020 with a grand prize of US$100 000 up for grabs.
This Pan-African acapella singing competition is searching for talented unsigned singing groups from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Groups of four, six and eight who sing Gospel, Pop or RnB are encouraged to enter the competition and submit a two-minute audition video on http://www.oldmutual.co.za/amazing-voices before 26 November 2020.
Entrants will have their video submissions reviewed by a team of experienced and in-country talent selectors. The groups selected to go forward to the next round in the competition will be invited to attend closed auditions in the capital cities of the participating countries during November and December.
Two groups from each country will then be given the opportunity to represent their nation at the elimination phase held in South Africa. Leading to the exciting finale, the elimination process will result in just three groups fighting it out in the ultimate “sing off”.
The public is encouraged to vote for their favourite group to give them a chance to win the grand prize and title of Season 2 Old Mutual Amazing Voices winners.
“We love the fact that this sponsorship discovers and develops young people with great talent.

All the talent, drama and suspense will be captured in a television series that will be aired across various DStv channels from March 2021.
