Quickteller has launched its music talent hunt show called Quickteller ‘Barz and Notes’ and has enjoined everyone interested in pursuing a music career to send in their entries, which will close on March 28, 2022.
The three steps to follow to be part of the show are joining the Quickteller community on Instagram by clicking the ‘follow’ button, sharing a video of yourself singing an original song and sharing the video using the #QuicktellerBANTS and #Quickteller‘Barz and Notes’ hashtags.
The criteria for selection will include originality, vocals, social following, style/genre of music, creativity, flexibility, willingness to evolve, and the ability to leverage on value.
The show, which will run for five weeks, will serve as a platform for aspiring music artists to explore their passion for music and receive hands-on, dedicated guidance from industry experts such as Speroachbeatz, Yung Willis, Rexxiepondabeat, Gospelondebeatz, and P Prime. These tested music producers will shape the sounds and lyrics for the music creatives from start to finish.
Viewers can be a part of the journey, too, as the program will be streamed on social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, where episodes can be played and replayed for the viewing pleasure of the audience.
Quickteller ‘Barz and Notes’ was conceived to boost the music career of aspiring artistes by providing them with insights into the workings of the music business, personal branding as artists, music production, marketing, among other useful experiences that will boost the career of the participating individuals.
The music show is not a competition but a music production boot camp that has been designed to give equal opportunities to selected artistes to produce an album and build healthy careers in the music business, setting the show apart from other existing music talent shows.
The Quickteller ‘Barz and Notes’ music show will provide a breakdown of the process of making music, making it an open-source, on-air affair for both the housemates and the participating viewers, who may also be interested in the music production process.
This demystification of the music process was highlighted by Priscilla Iyari, Brand Manager, Quickteller Group Marketing & Corporate Communications at Interswitch. She said that the show was created to provide enlightenment to individuals on how to launch a sustainable music career.
Iyari also noted that the support for the creative industry, especially in Nigeria, remained a commitment of Quickteller, helping more Nigerians discover and explore their various passion within the creative field while providing an enabling platform to make that possible.
