Just weeks before Akon performs in India, the popular Senegalese American singer has launched a contest to select two unknown artists to perform at his concerts in Gurgaon and Bangalore April 16 and 17 respectively.
He is doing so in association with hitlab.com and interested candidates can submit their songs at www.hitlab.com/india. The winners will be announced April 13.
“Hitlab provides the opportunity for artists to get discovered and to perform live with me. I strongly encourage you to create a profile on Hitlab, have your music analyzed and rated and be part of this,” Akon said in a statement.
The Indian edition of Venky’s Akon Live In Concert is being brought to the country by Netsurf Entertainment, Thrive Entertainment USA, IVNO Events and Productions and in association with S. Raj Entertainment.
