Last year, Kenyan Music Group Wanavokali made history by taking home Sh10 million after being crowned winners of the First Edition of Old Mutual's Amazing Voices singing competition that went down in Johannesburg, South Africa.


"Guys, WE WON!!!!! Thank you so much for the votes and support; 100,000 USD is coming hoooome!!! 🇰🇪 #wanavokali #amazingvoicesafrica" shared Wanavokali back in April last year.


Season two of the Old Mutual Amazing Voices competitions will see top 10 groups, two from five countries, travel to South Africa, where they will undergo an intense musical, educational, and inspirational boot camp at Sun City compete for Sh10 million.



The Old Mutual's Amazing Voices is a pan-African signing reality competition show in which unsigned groups from 3 genres take to the stage to captivate audiences and judges and claim their $100K prize money, and be crowned Africa's Amazing Voices.


The selected group's journey to stardom will be closely monitored by the experienced judging table from each of the countries and supported by the show advisor Zwai Bala.

Singer cum Actor Sainapei Tande and Music Producer Ted Josiah were among selectors of groups that will represent Kenya.


"One of the sectors benefiting from Old Mutual's ongoing support is musicians and performers. We encourage them to learn career management skills as well as the personal financial skills they need to survive and succeed in a highly competitive business," said Tuju.
