Four Ugandans have advanced to the next stage of The Voice Africa, following the conclusion of the auditions phase of the talent show over the weekend.

Coach Yemi and her team

The Ugandans gunning for the grand prize of $ 100,000 or about Shs 370million are Desire Tusiimire, Ronnie Ssemujju, and Charles Ssekitoleko, who are on Coach Awilo Longomba’s team, and Sharon Kyolinakyo who is on Coach Jaydee’s.

Three other Ugandans have been eliminated from the Airtel sponsored competition.

Contestants in the race have been drawn from the 14 countries of Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Madagascar, Chad, DRC, Malawi, Niger, Zambia, Seychelles, and the host Nigeria.

To advance to the duet battle stage, talents had to be selected by Coaches Yemi Alade, Awilo Longomba, Lady Jaydee, and Charles Locko Samba, to be on their teams.

During this next phase, the best contender of the performing duo will be qualified for the live performances, where viewers will vote via different channels. The Coaches now have their complete teams of four and will pair their talents to perform as a duet and then select their best talent who will qualify for the live auditions.

The recent episode featured the first vocal battle between Clive from Seychelles and Gigi from Malawi who sang ‘Beauty and the Beast’ by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, Clive’s splendid performance earned him a save from Coach Yemi to the next phase of the contest.

The vocal musical reality show airs every week and the coming episodes will feature Coach Awilo, Coach Jaydee, and Coach Loko’s team. These will be broadcasted on cable TV, Free-To-Air, Airtel TV on Sundays at 8:00 pm on Sundays, and YouTube across the continent from March to September 2023 when the winner will be announced.

Aside from the grand prize of $100,000, the winner will also take home an assortment of Airtel goodies, and a recording contract.
