Interested young musicians were requested to drop their demos at MTN branch offices across the country or upload demos on the MTNplay portal and could also drop their demos at partner radio stations across the country.

After the listening sessions by the judges, there would be screening and audition sessions till 10 artistes are selected to feature in the 13-week television reality show.
