For over two hours, the six finalists vied on the
stage with their lyrics and creativity under
scrutiny of the trio of music producer, ID
Cabasa; rapper and musician, Reminisce and
Vector Tha Viper who were the judges on the
day.

we also have the Airtel TRACE Music show and

his dreams through music. He thanked Airtel
