Y'ello Star Regional Auditions

Y’ello Star is a musical platform created by Nigeria’s leading Telecommunications and data services provider, MTN Nigeria to search for, discover, nurture, expose and launch music talents in young Nigerians.

At MTN Nigeria, we believe every hidden star and talent deserves a chance to shine bright. We appreciate the fact that there are huge musical talents hidden in every part of the country, and most times, these talents are, at best, under-developed or outrightly allowed to die because they are not being harnessed.

This immersive demo and experience will travel across three Nigerian cities to showcase the capabilities of 5G and its potential to enable economic growth, and social inclusion.
