  • Can your song inspire Africa?

    At a time when the whole world was in a state of uncertainty, the NESCAFÉ One Song contest was launched across six countries in West Africa to give our communities the opportunity to write and perform their unique song of positivity to inspire each other to always start every morning strong, to stay strong through any challenge and to finish strong. The contest generated great interest and there were over 1,800 entries over a four week period.

THE BEST OF TALENTS

At the first round, five contestants were selected by a panel of Judges.  Fans voted to determine who should win the 3,000 USD star prize and the chance to be part of the production of the multilingual, multicultural NESCAFE ONESONG to inspire Africa.
