On Saturday, September 23, Young Incredible emerged as the overall winner of BudxUncovered Nigeria, with an overwhelming share of audience votes, at the Grand Finale in Harbour Point, Victoria Island, Lagos. The creative rapper with a quick flow enthralled and excited the crowd from the moment he stepped on stage, and he will now get to perform on a global stage in Las Vegas, U.S.A.

Young Incredible (Calabar), came out on top, ahead of the other winners of the Regional Stages – Calian (PH), Smart Asante (Enugu), Dreay Picasso (Asaba), Niieedo (Uyo) and Dammy Kush (Lagos) – concluding Budweiser’s six-week nationwide search to find Nigeria’s next music superstar.

From August 12 till September 23, the BudxUncovered Stages caught the eye of fans across the country with the talents expressing their delight and awe at the opportunity.

Budweiser, thank you so much, I’m grateful for this opportunity,” said Young Incredible. “This is one thing that nobody, no brand, no product has ever done for artists like this. See that ‘B’ in Budweiser, to me, that ‘B’ means The Best.

I don’t even know how to explain it,’ said Smart Asante. “Thanks so much Budweiser.

This is like my first performance ever

,” said Dreay Picasso. “After the first song, there was this loud cheer from the crowd, and I was like ‘yeah, this is it.

Shout-out to Budweiser,” said Niieedo. ‘It’s one of those rare privileges they give to people.

There were also eye-catching performances from artists like Teni, BNXN, and Kola Boy, plus appearances from renowned personalities like Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, and Jimmie Akinsola.

The campaign launched in July, and hundreds of potential contestants submitted audition demos in a bid to be the next music superstar in Nigeria. 36 contestants were selected to perform on six Regional Stages in Port Harcourt, Enugu, Asaba, Uyo, Calabar and Lagos, before the Grand Finale in Lagos.
