Two talented student-artists have won the Liberia Music Contest – a contest which gives the lucky winner a distribution deal with Africa’s leading online music platform Africori and an opportunity to be heard by a wider audience.
The distribution deal for the two winners would include marketing and public relations work by JMK Publicist, professional international quality mix and mastering of their songs, professionally designed cover by OladexGrafix as well as access to a mailing list of 10,000 plus subscribers, and other great packages.
In a statement released to LIB Life on behalf of the organizing team, publicist Junda Morris- Kennedy said, “At the close of the contest powered by Africori and JMK Publicist, we received over 50 songs from some amazing talented Liberian artists in Liberia and the Diaspora.”
“After the team listened carefully to all songs submitted, the winners of the contest emerged as STUNNA and A-Raw.”
She added that the duo submitted a single, “WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday)” – produced by Liberian producer Trigga – that stood apart and above the rest of the songs submitted.
Junda described the artists as “rising stars that give a breath of fresh air to the kind of amazing untapped talent on the rise in the Liberian Music Industry.”
