The MENA region has such rich and diverse musical influences. We are looking forward to finding extraordinary talent who will represent the region on a global stage, whether they are from Riyadh, Amman, Beirut, Cairo, or anywhere else in this wonderful part of the world. Pepsi have always inspired and enabled my ambitions, so they are the perfect partner for this unprecedented search.”
