MBABANE - Nadia Nakai, SAHHA and AFRIMA award winner, BET 2022 nominee and Young Famous and African TV personality will be bringing her fire to the MTN Bushfire Firefly Grand Finale next Friday at House On Fire.

The award-winning artist known for hit songs such as ‘Naaa Meaan’ and her feature on AKA’s song ‘Dangerous’, will also be a guest contributor at the MTN Bushfire Firefly Top 10 mentorship session on the day of the grand finale.


When reached for comment MTN Bushfire Festival Director Jiggs Thorne said: “This session hosted by MTN Bushfire aims to motivate the Top 10 finalists ahead of the show, and gives them the opportunity to engage with established industry professionals who will share professional guidance and mentorship on how to develop their music careers.” The MTN Bushfire Firefly youth music competition is currently underway, with fantastic talent gaining recognition. The Top 20 consists of 15 Eswatini artists and five South African artists.  This year, the locally produced music competition opened its doors to SA artists for the first time, creating expansive and collaborative opportunities across borders. Launched in 2017, the MTN Bushfire Firefly competition is designed for the #YoungGiftedFree – the trailblazers who dream big and hustle hard! This vibrant competition creates a music space with no limitations for the youth to freely express themselves by sharing their musical creativity and lyrical authenticity.


Among the exciting prizes and new career opportunities, the top three winners will win a performance slot at the internationally acclaimed MTN Bushfire 2023 festival to be held on May 26 – 28, this year. It’s also worth mentioning that the voting closes today. The Top 20 finalists are currently in the voting stage of the competition, and can be supported by receiving your votes via the innovative AYOBA app for free.
