He has urged locals to support them and to follow the competition on SBC 1, or Airtel TV which is free of charge.
He also said people can download the Airtel TV app on their phone and watch the local talents battle it out on the continent.
‘We had taken a pause after announcing that we had chosen the eight participants in January as we wanted to ensure all the logistics were correct and I can confirm that everything is now running smoothly. I urge you to throw your support behind our talents,” he urged.
The Voice of Africa will be streamed on Sundays at 7pm.
