Jalia Nasejje alias Zabuli, the brain behind the talent search says, “Well, we did our first season in 2019, we have been on a break from 2020 to almost the end of 2022. The reason is because after season 1, we had to go through so much learning on the job that we had to reassess before we come back for another season. Most of us had to do a lot of growing including the person speaking, we needed time to grow regroup and then come back to do better and greater.
That’s why it’s going to be one of the greatest things that people get to be a part of because we planned and took the time to grow; we are doing a talent search. Now because we are ready for the next growth and service challenge as long as it builds another artist up for better service with their gifts.”
Zabuli added that registration is only Shs20,000 at Praise Cathedral Church, Ntinda opposite Hotel Eliana and it will start on 2nd January to 3rd February 2023. She urged that the interested parties should register in time to be part of the competition.
