All is set for the highly anticipated Accra auditions of the Glo X Factor this weekend, where thousands of ambitious Ghanaians would be pitching their talents against each other with an eye on a record setting US$150, 000 prize cash and the prospect of launching a musical career with the reputed Sony Record label.
The Accra auditions, slated for Saturday and Sunday, May 11-12, 2013 at the plush Alisa Hotel, is expected to further boost the excitement about what is acclaimed as the world?s biggest reality TV singing show, following the frenzy it generated in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi last weekend.
The two-day audition in Accra is expected to attract bigger audience, including aspirants? resident outside the metropolis and possibly from neighbouring regions seeking to take a shot at stardom.
So far, 25 Kumasi-based artistes have qualified from Ghana to the Glo X Factor boot camp in Lagos, Nigeria, and the Accra audition is expected to identify another 25 talents to represent the country at the Lagos boot camp.
They will be joining some 50 contestants who have also qualified from two streams of auditioning at Port Harcourt and Abuja, heading for the Lagos boot camp.
