As African music continues to gain global attention at an unprecedented rate with stars such as Sarkodie, Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Shatta Wale, Nasty C and AKA championing the cause, King Promise has been named as a judge for 2020's Afrochella 'Rising Star Challenge', to find up-and-coming African musical talents to have their own share of the spotlight!

The challenge embedded in this year's line of Afrochella activities will see popular music sharing app, Audiomack on board for the second year in a row, to give fresh talents across Africa the platform to grow and sell their craft.

Artists are invited to submit their best track and 25 of the best submissions will be included in a curated Audiomack playlist for the public to discover these emerging talents.
