Our Jungle is full of talents, especially in the singing business: Impressive and peculiar voices have demonstrated their passion and quality performance on different occasions. Now, the Venezuelan BANANO community has proposed to create a Singing Talent Academy on Twitter, called ‘The Voice of BANANO’, which is funded by the BANANO team with a 100k BANANO prize pool going to all participants — read all details below.
The Voice of BANANO: Talent Academy on Twitter
