Airtel Trace Music Star to be Mentored by Superstar Akon

Hired by Airtel Trace Music Star to sit on the judge panel alongside Afro pop songstress Vanessa Mdee and record producer Hermy B, Joett and his musical fraternity pals were charged with the arduous task of sifting through audition tapes and later, after selecting the top 5 entries, Joett was commissioned to vocal coach the contestants for the Tanzania Finale that took place February 7th 2015. Quite a tall order, considering Joett only had 10 hours per contestant to get their vocals in order in time for the finish line, in which Mayunga emerged overall winner.

Winners from thirteen African countries will attend a televised Pan-African Grand Finale in Nairobi on March 28th, to elect the Airtel TRACE Music Star 2015. The winning finalist will travel to the USA to be mentored by megastar Akon and he/she will star in their own professional music video to premier on TRACE. The Airtel TRACE Music Star winner will also sign a record deal with Universal Music in the USA. In the run-up to the Pan-African Grand Finale, Tanzanian winner, Mayunga, continues to receive professional vocal training and mentoring from Joett.
