Erumaka explained that the competition is for persons between the ages of 10 – 40 years and there are big prizes to be won, adding “The winner gets N100,000 and free music production and the first runner up gets N50,000 and free music production. The second runner up gets N30,000 and free music production”
He said that entries are open, adding that those who wish to participate must follow and tag @bishoperumaka, @championscoalition and @wordbasehq on instagram.
“They should also send a one minute video of them singing their favourite gospel song on instagram using #Thegospeltalash hastag and tag the above instagram handles. Contestants will be picked from there and this will be followed by physical auditioning of 50 people where the top 10 performers will be scheduled for the grand finale”
