The competition which is in its third year has been a huge success, with various regional knockouts across the south-east of the country. The search for the next Hi-Life king saw Life Lager head to cities such as Awka, Asaba, Onitsha, Enugu, and Port-Harcourt.

After two months of exciting musical events across these cites, four finalists emerged as the cream of the crop, and these talented artistes took to stage in Onitsha, hoping to do enough to impress the judges on the night.
