Trybe Records #TopTalent Producer Edition: Top 10 Finalists Revealed Voting Starts NOW!

Here are the Top 10 finalists for the TopTalent Producer Edition. First of all, Trybe Records, NotjustOk and all Judges involved commend all producers who submitted their material for this competition. Most of you did a decent job and made this competition a difficult one for the people who had to pick the Top 10 Finalists. Amazing talent.

If you read the original post where we announced the competition, you will have noticed that the finalists were supposed to be 5 in total and these finalists were meant to be announced yesterday, but instead we ended up announcing the finalists today and choosing 10 finalists. The truth is that many of the songs received were very good and we were not able to cut down the list to only 5 finalists, so an executive decision was made to add the Top 10 songs to the list.

Go ahead and listen to the songs below and  let the voting begin! Please remember that voting closes on October 14 and the winner will be announced on October 15.

For the first time in a very long time I am underwhelmed by a Kid Konnect production...The productions are ok, but a bit cliche, I was waiting to hear one producer that would really switch things up, but that never came...

PS: NJO, TeeKlef's entry is giving a File Not Found error, please fix that, until then, my vote goes to Melvitto but I'll wait to hear TeeKlef's before actually voting

MasterKraft should go and put his head in a hole. He should contest with Don Jazzy. Ass wipe contesting with the yash.... Producers way no reach am self form levels say em no go enter. Masterkraft is on the list sha! Shitty competition. i just informed Don Jazzy and Cobhams and they ve agreed to send in their entry too. Eldee and Ovie O take note.

All these guys came correct but since you can only choose one, I'll go with Melvitto. I think he did the best job; and I'll be surprised if he doesnt win it.

Good job guys!

A lot of really Good entries. I don't envy the judges one bit!

Genres are a bit predictable though... Pity no rock music version was attempted though... was hoping for some fresh air in that Genre. Pity my entry would also never see the light of day (In public)

All in all, really good mixes! May the best composer win.

To be honest,all producers did their thing but thing is why take submissions from ppl that we already knw are top talent?I thut dis was meant to be a way of discovering new talents?and trust me,there's dis version I heard can't remember the composer's name but he killed all these peeps as a matter of fact,I had kid konnects' and I even got people to judge n all I've met said he killed kid so coming here to see kid I'm like jesus naija will never change.

The fact that a producer has enough PR for you to have heard of him before does not mean they are big time. Get your own PR game up. Abi what mainstream hit song has kid konnect produced?

Guys the fact is the best production might not even win because the duty of a producer is to INTERPRETE MUSIC not BEAT MAKING....if u listened to the accapella its very obvious the style eLDee sang was Techno/House...so kudos to the guys even able to work a 'naija feel' to it...

so the fact that u don't like their individual production is a personal bias not lack of creativity...
