Having been one of the winners of Radio City Freedom Awards 3rd Season, I can vouch for the importance of artistes getting the right exposure. It is these larger than life platforms that play an instrumental role in not just giving artistes like me a stage to launch themselves, but also give the industry fresh and versatile music content."
