Keke Ogungbe, speaking on the subject, said, “It is a joy to see Africa setting standards in mainstream music across the world. The history we have created as Africans, especially Kennis Music being one of the main pioneers in the evolution of Afrobeats, is truly priceless.
“The story isn’t complete without mentioning some of our artists who played a leading role in bringing this great height to fruition. The likes of 2baba, Dbanj, JJC Skills, Sound Sultan and many more known in around the world, which not only imprints Afrobeats gold in the hearts of many, both at home and abroad, but also makes Nigeria proud.
“It has also opened up opportunities for today’s young Nigerians who are doing very well in music, with the likes of Burna Boy not only being nominated for a Grammy, but bringing it home to us.
“That joy for me transcends just being part of history, but also being able to give platforms to young Nigerians with great talent to showcase themselves.
“So in July we are introducing Naija Star Search. Naija Star Search is a reality show aimed at discovering the next generation of afrobeats superstars, courtesy of StarTimes.
