These four artists would be provided the needed support and tools to advance their musical career while also growing their YouTube presence to market them globally.
This development, according to Youtube, was in fulfillment of its earlier promise to support the country’s Afrobeats talents during the Google for Nigeria event in July, where it declared support for 10 emerging artists through Mr. Eazi’s emPawa program.
Overall, it turned out to be an interesting night of networking and music with a lot to eat and drink.
