die kontrak mentors

Die Kontrak’s mentors – Elvis Blue, Tarryn Lamb, Monique Steyn and Dewald Wasserfall – will select the eight most talented candidates from the entries.

VIA (DStv channel 147) and streaming live on DStv Now, and the Afrikaans music industry’s biggest independent record company, Coleske Artists, are looking for the next big Afrikaans artist. In the new TV show Die Kontrak, which will air on the Afrikaans lifestyle channel later this year, eight aspiring singers will vie for a sought-after recording contract. Die Kontrak’s mentors – Elvis Blue, Tarryn Lamb, Monique Steyn and Dewald Wasserfall – will select the eight most talented candidates from the entries.

Each one of the candidates will enter the competition with a recording contract. The challenge, however, is to hold on to the contract because at the end of every episode the boss, Arnold Coleske, tears up one contract. At the end of the series, only the winner will receive a contract with Coleske Artists. Throughout the series, the eight aspiring singers must impress a panel of three experts: the music stars Corlea Botha and Theuns Jordaan, as well as the creative director of the "Afrikaans is Groot" megaconcerts, Barry Pretorius. This exciting show will be presented by Afrikaans music’s golden brother-and-sister duo, Bobby and Karlien van Jaarsveld.

If you are the next big Afrikaans artist, enter now.
