Speaking on the new edition, the Portfolio Manager, Mainstream brands, Omotunde Adenusi said,

‘’Ariya Repete is a very special platform that allows us to showcase and celebrate the very best talents in Nigeria. Over the years, we have been able to delight our consumers with this initiative as well as provide some unforgettable memories for a lot of winners and viewers of past editions. We hope to make this edition filled with even more enjoyment’.

“Goldberg has become a brand that has evolved from celebrating cultural beliefs to a brand that believes in sustaining our traditional values  as a way to reshape the future. The Yoruba music landscape has evolved, with the infusion of musical genres like hip-hop, Afropop, jazz and the likes. Presently, Yoruba hip-hop takes the stage as one of the fastest-growing music genres in Nigeria, hence the need for the genre to be promoted by Ariya Repete”.
