Acknowledging the importance of platforms like the Trophy Extra Special Band to upcoming acts, 2Baba said, “Africa is truly blessed with immeasurable music talent and this has been highlighted by the cross-continental recognition our artistes are receiving. There is however a need to give not only solo acts a voice, but also groups who work very hard to perfect their craft.
