The much-anticipated third season of Battle of the Sounds has begun in Amuwo-Odofin.
Seun Ayeni, the chief convener of this biennial music tournament and festival, founded it in 2017 as a tool for youth development, talent discovery, and reducing restlessness in his community.
The 2020 edition, on the other hand, was affected by the lock down and was streamed online, with maximum safety precautions taken to comply with COVID 19 regulations at the time.
The 2022 opening ceremony, held at Darius Turf in Amuwo-Odofin on November 5, 2022, was well attended by dignitaries and spectators. Engr Valentine Buraimoh, Executive Chairman of the host local government, is one of them.
As usual, celebrities such as K-Peace of Nigerian Idol fame and award-winning GT da Guitarman, who grew up in the community, attended the event.
Battle of the Sounds Season 3 will last one month, according to co-organizer Dapo Quadri. The format of the competition uses all of the weekends in November, allowing teenagers who also work full-time to participate, he added.
At the tournament’s conclusion on November 27, 2022, cash prizes and record deals will be awarded to group and individual winners. According to Dare Ayeni, another event co-organizer, group winnings are usually greater than individual winnings in order to encourage teamwork and communal unity.
