The Kenyan representative for the continental talent search show Airtel TRACE Music Star stands a chance to record a duet with the American pop star, Keri Hilson.
Over the weekend, Tonya Ahenda battled other Kenyan finalist and was selected to fly Kenya’s flag in Lagos at the grand finale. She won a cash prize of Sh 1.5 million while Elivis Kosiso the first runner up took home a cash prize of Sh 100,000 with Ciano Maimba bagging Sh 50,000 as second runner up.
By day, Tonya is an accountant by night a verocious songstress.
“I would like to thank God for the gift and talent he’s given me without him I wouldn’t be here, thank you TRACE and Airtel for the platform and opportunity, thank you judges for your time and input, to the contestants I wouldn’t have chosen a better team than this.” She said.
Adding, “My coaches, Atemi and Wyre have also offered to give me free lessons as I prepare for the Pan-African finale in Lagos.”
The country’s finalist will join a stellar cast of Africa’s finest up-and-coming singing talent in Lagos to battle for the chance to record with Keri Hilson. The winner will also receive a signed contract with a major music label and worldwide media exposure through various TRACE’s platforms.
