"WhozNext has been curated in the mold of America's Got Talent. The initiative will focus mainly on seven thematic areas including music, pageantry, fashion, poetry, comedy, dance, and content creation.

"We seek to replicate the success of Talanta Hela in sports for our creative industry," Namwamba stated.

This initiative is anticipated to be a game changer in the creative sector.

The ultimate goal is to monetise the winning artists and provide them with a structured pathway for nurturing and exposure.

CS Namwamba expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, emphasising the importance of Cape Media's platforms, TV47 and Radio47, in reaching the youth.

"The name TV47 and Radio47 sync well with our plan to roll out this program to all the 47 counties. I am sure we will leverage your countrywide audience to showcase the rich talent pool that exists in Kenya," he noted.

Professor Gicharu, the founder and patron of Cape Media, echoed Namwamba's optimism.

As the "WhozNext" program gears up for its premiere, it promises to provide a transformative platform for Kenya's creative talent, fostering growth and international recognition in the arts.
