The journey to become a successful artist is usually a challenging experience for most aspiring artists as too often they have to compete with well established artists.

Most artistic ventures require high capital outlay with a significant sum of the costs being incurred before any revenues can be earned.

ZBC News caught up with some of the upcoming artists in gospel, hip-hop and Zimdancehall genres in the capital who revealed that most aspiring musicians in the music industry have been frustrated by the challenges encountered and have given up on their dreams.

While it is every musician’s wish to have a platform to showcase their talent on stage, it has proven difficult for little known musicians to find space on that platform hence the need for promoters to avail that opportunity to young talent.
