Good things come to those who CREATE in spite of all challenges. Coming to Kenya for the first time ever is a project designed for creatives to showcase their talent, hone their skills, find global platforms and win big while participating.
We are pleased to introduce an innovative Radio talent show ‘Opportunities are Here (OAH) Project X’, that will air on Vybez Radio every Friday from 5pm-6pm. Opportunities Are here Project X is a project of the ITC-Ethical Fashion Initiative and the European Union.
OAH Project X is dedicated to young creatives between 18-35 years of age in the following categories: modeling, fashion design and performing arts. The project presents a unique opportunity for youth in these categories to share their talent and be a part of an exciting journey to greatness.
OAH Project X will be a Pan-African Identity Tour. The best creatives Kenya will meet, network and share the stage in Paris, in February 2022.
Does this sound exciting? Of course, it does. If this project is for you, then you should mark the dates below.
From 9th August to 22nd October, submit your entry. The online selection starts on 12th October to 31st October. Those selected will be incubated from 1st November. During the incubation, they will perform tasks and assignments that will give a taste of creative entrepreneurship.
OAH Project X is designed to do more than just entertain, but also educate. For the audience, we have prepared conversations to give you in-depth knowledge on topics you will find interesting and useful.
For those who stand out from the crowd, prepare yourself to go to bootcamp from 22nd - 28th November.

The finalists will then showcase in front of the Jurors who will then select 3 winners; 1 per category.
The Grand Finale will select and reward the best Nine participants; three from each category. The runners-up will receive a cash prize each and 3 months of mentoring with Metta Nairobi.
