Hip Hop artist King Kaka will on Tuesday hold an audition to find poets and spoken word artists at the Kenya National Theatre.
Time will be of essence in the audition as only the first 200 people will be considered. Additionally, registration forms will only be available between 7am and 9am.
The participants, will be judged by King Kaka himself, Mufasa Poet, and Sheila Mwanyigha.
Dubbed ‘Maneno Auditions’, the initiative is aimed at tapping fresh talent in the poetry and spoken word industry who are 18 years and above.
“We are seeking to give those who qualify more avenues to showcase their talents,” Kaka Empire operations manager, Dennis Njenga, told TV47 Digital on phone.
However, only a section of the 200 contestants will make it to the next stage.
