Daijiworld Media Network - Qatar

Qatar, Oct 17: Mhojo Tallo Gaitalo (MTG) is a unique Konkani singing reality show that took Mangalureans all over the world by storm with the sheer singing talent that was brought forth. The show is based on the songs of 'Konkan Kogull' Wilfy Rebimbus, and the organisers conceptualized the show to pay tribute to the Konkani music legend who revolutionized Konkani music.

After the mega-success of hosting the show in Mangaluru, there was a huge demand of taking this concept to the Middle East. Hence, Daijiworld 24x7 TV has taken the noble initiative of bringing this blockbuster show to four Gulf countries - Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and UAE.

In Qatar, The Mangalore Cultural Association with Daijiworld 24x7 TV, will host the audition, quarterfinal and semifinal of MTG Gulf Edition.

The reality TV contest will be held in two categories, male and female aged 15 and above with valid residence permit. The contestants should pick songs that are penned by late Wilfy Rebimbus only.

The Qatar auditions will be held on November 22 and the quarterfinal and semifinal will be held on November 23.

The competition (recording) venue will be informed to the participants accordingly as there will not be any audience during recording/video shooting.

Winners and runners-up in both the categories will be awarded with cash prize and a trophy.

This is a golden opportunity for all music and singing enthusiasts to showcase their talent to the world.

Last date for Registration: November 10.
