Every year those of us who love the entertainment industry wait anxiously to see who gets their big break. Understandably so, it’s because getting a break is much easier these days with initiatives like Top-Billing presenter search, SYTYCD, Class Act amongst others.
But at the same time, only the finest thrive when such opportunities do arise.
As the saying goes, “Luck is a crossroad where preparation and opportunity meet”. Here is a list of youngsters who are the up-coming movers and shakers you need to be on the lookout for. These individuals have been hard at work laying the foundation for that day the big opportunity comes knocking. They are young, hot and talented.

Venim’s drive and talents are simply extraordinary. He is a musical genius that’s simply too hard to ignore. This lad from Springs says all Genres of music feed his love of music as a whole.

There are lots of up and coming stars but these are top of my list for now.
