Benin Revelation Stars, a live music performance competition took place Saturday, September 5 at the multipurpose room of Zongo Bluezone.
Initiated in 2013, this contest is now in its third edition. It is driven by Tony YAMBODE, a young cultural promoter. For him, this event helps reveal the artistic talents in music and celebrate Benin stars.
Accompanied by an orchestra, eight candidates, men and women, have interpreted songs by international artists such as Celine Dion and Edith Piaf. The most daunting challenge for the candidates was that of a compulsory song where they were to interpret a Beninese hit before its author. The chosen artist was Miss Espoir.
After the eliminatory stage, six finalists were chosen. They will compete on Saturday, September 12 for the last premium. The winner will benefit from assistance to produce a music album and will receive a motorcycle. Pending this final stretch, contestants will continue their training in Zongo Bluezone, under the supervision of a coach.
