BUJUMBURA August 24th (ABP) – The chief organizer of the Burundi Kids got Talent competition, Dr. Azarias Nkengurutse organized on Monday, August 21, 2023 in Bujumbura, a coaching session towards the candidates who were selected in the semi-final which took place on August 18, 2023.
Indeed, more than 40 numbers are expected in the grand final: 22 song numbers, 6 slam-poetry numbers, 3 musician numbers, 3 comedy numbers, 4 dance numbers, 6 drawing/paintings and 1 number in the discipline of Acrobatics.
Dr. Nkengurutse pointed out that this coaching session is organized to give clarifications on certain focal points of the grand final as well as artistic advice so that whoever arrives on the stage has confidence in them.
For example, a singer candidate can start badly or position themselves badly while they know how to sing well. These are the errors that we wanted to correct before the final, he said, before reassuring that the Grand Final will be a multicolored event rich in talent.
Dr. Nkengurutse also pointed out that a person who exceeds 18 years old is not entitled to participate except that they can play on the instruments to accompany the candidate. A candidate is entitled to only one companion; the others will pay 5000 BIF for children, 10 thousand BIF for adults, 30 thousand BIF in the V.I.P place, 50 thousand BIF for the V.V.I.P places and 100 thousand BIF for the sponsor ticket.
He also indicated that beside the opportunities which will be open to all candidates, in each discipline, the first 3 will be given awards but there will be a grand award which will be given to the one who has done well in general. This Grand Final is scheduled for August 24, in Bujumbura.
Note that this competition of Burundi Kids got talent is organized in Burundi for its first edition by the association “United Partners for Humanitarian Welfare” (UPHWO) in partnership with the Ministry responsible for youth and culture.
