Potential Talents Get Missed!

A lot of youth and youngsters' talents in Africa go unrecognized…O yeah! There are so many boys and girls, even at very young ages whose talents never see the light in the growing African nations … I mean...they never get audience or get adopted! I think some of those unlucky folks would have become "celebrities" of their ages have it not been for their countries’ low economy, tribal wars, or governments' leadership mismanagement.


On the other hand, it is a mere fact that the society and the particular government bodies that are supposed to care about entertainment and arts in African countries do not promote the emerging talented iconic persons of their societies, here, I specifically point to the Republic of South Sudan in Africa (the very new country in the world). Growing these kids' artistic talents through further education in...say… Music, is one of the challenges they face due to lack of funds, inability to find scholarships, and just even lack of access to resources!!
 
Now, though some of these South Sudanese youngsters try their best to push out their passion for singing by seeking whatever opportunities to sing (and believe me what amazing voices and charisma they display), yet one main barrier is "marketing" their productions in a way that can bring them profits that can at least facilitate for furthering their quest for becoming established musicians! How to manage and market their work remains to be a big challenge for such emerging young singers. hmmm! What a shame for these unrepresented kids, but who can see their capabilities!! And who can take the chance to bring them up!!


Regardless, above all, the on-going civil and tribal wars in the African nations does kill alongside not only the people, but also all the potential talents that could have emerged if only these poor souls had lived longer! In such civil wars, political unrests, genocides, etc.... those who are most vulnerable and most affected are the women, elderly, and children; including the youngsters... Now these are the people I mean when I say “lots of wasted and missed talents happen when they go unspotted or die innocently, taking their potentials with them!
 
Anyhow, spotting talents and upgrading them remain to be a dream for many African boys and girls. If you feel the zeal to help some of these talented South Sudanese kids to grow and become achievers in the arena of music, please contact us to help you get in touch with them at ourweb@mail.com. Here I selected three of talented kids that I enjoy watching their performances. Hey, you can also check the “Video” page here on the blog as we would be updating the page with more videos.
