Amakhosi Dreams To Fame finals on today

BULAWAYO - About 36 artists will battle for honours in music and dance during the Amakhosi Dreams to Fame competition finals set for Amakhosi Cultural Centre today.

Three winners in each category will be honoured. Those who come first in each category will walk away with shields with the second and third getting medals.

Finalists in the dance category awards include Alaska, Revolution, Hurricanz HD, Black Medals and T-Nuz.
In the music category, those who made it to the finale are The League, King Senko, Cool Runnings, Heavy D: Cash talk, Wizkid and E-Carly Trigger.

Entertainment during the contest, that is scheduled to start at 2pm, will be provided by former winners of the competition.

The Amakhosi director revealed to the Daily News plans to spruce up the Dreams To Fame talent programme next year. After the planned changes Dreams To Fame will now focus exclusively on music and dance.

“Drama has since been moved to Plays On Sunday while poetry has been moved to Voices and Fingers on Thursdays”, said the veteran arts personality.

“Voices and Fingers is a new platform that focuses on grooming artists who are learning to play a musical instrument of their choice, sing or recite poetry”.

The Dreams To Fame talent programme originally brought together drama, poetry, dance, music and junior modelling under the same stage but lack of competitors in other disciplines undermined the contest.

Dreams To Fame aims to help young people, among other things, gain confidence, the capacity and ability to manage peer pressure as well as boost their creativity.

Last year’s edition saw a record 1 200 aspirants taking part with over 17 000 people attending the 20-weeks-long competition.

Veteran dub poet Albert Nyathi, dance queen Sandra Ndebele and actress Precious Makhumulo were last year’s adjudicators on the final day.
