Uganda: Superstar Kids' Search Opens

A new talent search, focusing on children's unique talents, is here.

Super Kid Talent Search 2013, a brainchild of "My Kid is a Superstar" conducts its auditions on April 27 and 28 at the Kampala Serena Conference Centre. Joseph Masembe, proprietor of "My Kid is a Superstar", says 200 superstar kids will be selected for the non-residential boot camp from which 20 finalists will be picked.

The public will then be engaged in an elimination process that will leave 12 superstar kids to compete for the ultimate superstar accolade. The winning child will have an all-expenses-paid trip to Disney land.

"The ultimate winner will receive the ultimate superstar treatment. They will be chauffeured to school on the first day of term and waited upon with silver-spoon service. The same will be done on the last day of school," Masembe told The Observer.

Since its inception, the My Kid is a Superstar festival, has grown in leaps. At the last event on December 16, 2012, President Museveni made a guest appearance at the Kololo Independence grounds where the event was held.

"We have continuously provided quality family fun and entertainment for the Superstar Kids since we started and have built a database of over 15,000 children.

"The past four events have provided us with superstar kids with immense talents. From singers to dancers, comedians to fashion stars, computer games talent and many more."

The competition is limited to children between the ages of five and 12. Children will be allowed to showcase anything that they believe makes them a superstar.
